Corsair shows secure Voyager flash drive

New generation of Padlock
In addition to the new Obsidian 700D case that will most likely be the crown jewel of its CeBIT showcase, Corsair has announced a second version of its Padlock flash drive.
The previous Padlock was neat, but it lacked, what we like to call, a Corsair touch. The new Padlock 2 uses the same principle of a PIN number that locks the drive, but this time it looks like Corsair's well-known Voyager drive, rather than the box-like design of the first Padlock.
The drive uses 256-bit hardware encryption that unlocks the data only after typing the correct PIN number on a built-in keypad. It has 8GB of space and as mentioned, features a rubberized design, just like all Voyager flash drives.
The new Padlock 2 is backed by ten years of warranty and has a price of around US $60. It is already listed in the EU and can be found for as low as €41.68.
