The World's First USB Type-C Flash Drive- The SanDisk Dual USB Drive Type-C
SanDisk is one amongst the most aggressive companies addressing the storage needs of mobile device and was the first to ship USB Type-C flash drives. Many mobile devices are coming out with the USB Type-C interface like the Apple MacBook, Google Chromebook Pixel, Asus Transformer Book Filp, Dell XPS 15, Nexus 5X and 6P, etc.
The idea behind the SanDisk Dual USB Drive Type-C is that you can move all your videos and photos that fill up your phone to the flash drive using the USB Type-C connector. When needed, you can transfer those videos and photos to any PC or Mac using the currently more ubiquitous USB Type-A connector that you then use to manage and edit your media.
See how well it works with the Google Chromebook Pixel here.

Also, we found that it couldn't work with the OnePlus 2 phone.
One risk with being early to the market is that there is a high risk of failure seen with the USB Type-C connector. Out of the three we purchased, the USB Type-C connector stopped working after a couple months of use although the USB Type-C Connector is still usable. Hopefully the next version of this product will address this problem.
