This titanium USB by Tangfori reminds us that flash drives should never be regarded as disposable, as more and more of our everyday lives are uploaded and stored on computers. In order to prolong the USB’s life span and to provide the highest quality user experience, the TI Drive chose to use an element that even aerospace engineers approve of: Grade 5 aerospace Titanium. The TI USB is the first ever to integrate this material in a flash drive.

The all-metal TI is retractable and sleek and simplistic in design and its internal system is high speed. The TI is available in 32GB and 64GB.

Grade 5 aerospace titanium, also known as Ti6Al4V, Ti-6Al-4V or Ti 6-4, is known to be significantly stronger than commercially pure titanium—it can take up to 400°C (750°F) in heat.
