Flash memory product company, Lexar, has announced two additions to its mobile USB 3.0 flash drive line: the Lexar JumpDrive M20c and the Lexar JumpDrive M20i.

The M20c is tailored for next-generation USB Type-C devices, and features two connectors – USB Type-C and USB 3.0 – to allow users to share content between smartphones, tablets, and computers.

The M20i is designed for use with iOS devices, enabling users to offload and move photos and videos between an iPhone, iPad, and computers.

Key facts:

  • Lexar JumpDrive M20c features a 2-in-1 design to include a USB Type-C and USB 3.0 connector with performance up to 150MB/s read and 60MB/s write.
  • Lexar JumpDrive M20i has a retractable 2-in-1 design to include a Lightning and USB 3.0 connector with USB 3.0 performance up to 95MB/s read and 20MB/s write.

Micron Consumer Products Group marketing manager APAC, Mathew Luu, said, “The long-awaited reality of Type-C connectivity is here, and the new Lexar JumpDrive M20c is meeting the emerging demand for a solution that allows users to quickly and easily share content across next-generation and legacy devices.

"With the endless amount of content being created, captured, and consumed every day, it’s easy to run out of space on your smartphone or tablet. Both the Lexar JumpDrive M20c and Lexar JumpDrive M20i provide users with an easy way to transfer, share, and offload content on the go.”

The Lexar JumpDrive M20c leverages USB 3.0 performance with up to 150MB/s read and 60MB/s write speeds, according to the company. Users can transfer a 3GB HD video clip in less than one minute, compared to the four minutes it takes using a standard USB 2.0 drive.

The reversible design of the Type-C connector aids with insertion and allows users to expand the memory of devices providing more room for images and videos. For added versatility, the drive is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 devices.

The Lexar JumpDrive M20i drive has a Lightning and USB 3.0 connector to make quick work of offloading files on the go - no charging or battery needed, and no network required. It works with the use of a free file management app from the Apple App Store which allows users to back up files when connected, and automatically and securely syncs files on the go.

The company claims the M20i provides read speeds up to 95MB/s and write speeds up to 20MB/s. For added versatility, the drive is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 devices.

Both the Lexar JumpDrive M20c and M20i are compatible with PC and Mac systems and come with a three-year limited warranty.

The new JumpDrive M20c USB Type-C flash drives will be available in October. Recommended retail prices are: 16GB -$31 ($NZ34); 32GB - $41 ($NZ45), and 64GB - $62 ($NZ68).

Prices for the JumpDrive M20i are: 16GB - $72 ($NZ79), 32GB - $103 ($NZ114), 64GB - $165 ($NZ182).

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr


The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
