Transcend launches new Lightning lineup for latest iOS devices

Designed exclusively for Apple products, Transcend has launched a new product lineup equipped with a Lightning connector, including the latest RDA2W Smart Reader and JetDrive Go flash drives.

Transcend's powerful apps complement the new Lightning products, allowing easy file transfers between Apple's iOS devices and computers. It also lets users efficiently manage their data and instantly expand their storage capacity.

The new Transcend RDA2W Smart Reader features card slots for both SD and microSD cards. It works side by side with Transcend's Smart Reader app, offering data backups, card formatting, file encryption, file compression and decompression, direct saving or audio recordings to memory cards, and easy access to cloud storage.

Transcend's JetDrive Go flash drives, on the other hand, provide an ultra-convenient way to back up and transfer files. Both the JetDrive Go 300 and JetDrive Go 500 combine a Lightning connector and a regular USB 3.1 connector into a single flash drive. The USB 3.1 Gen 1 connector offers incredible transfer speeds of up to 130MBps, while the extended Lightning connector allows easy plug-in.

The JetDrive Go 300 is available in silver, black, and rose gold colors with 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB capacities. Meanwhile, the JetDrive Go 500, which boasts a compact and refined metallic design, is available in gold color with 32GB and 64GB capacities and in silver with up to 128GB capacities.

Transcend's JetDrive Go app offers an intuitive interface that provides simple data transfer, easy file management, and quick backup of data. Other convenient functions such as Shoot and Save enables users to shoot and save photos, videos, and audio recordings directly to the flash drive, while the password protection function allows for secure data storage.

The Transcend RDA2W Smart Reader, JetDrive Go 300, and JetDrive Go 500 flash drives have gone through a rigorous approval process to be Apple MFi-certified – Apple’s licensing program for third-party hardware accessories that are intended for iOS devices –  to guarantee compatibility, safety, and quality that meet Apple’s stringent performance and manufacturing requirements. Both the RDA2W Smart Reader and JetDrive Go series are backed by Transcend's two-year limited warranty.
