An Extra-Long MicroUSB Tip Lets This Flash Drive Circumvent Phone Cases

If you're OK with doubling the thickness of your svelte Android smartphone with a chunky case, you've probably realised that the myriad of OTG microUSB flash drives out there won't actually attach to the bottom of your device. So SanDisk is throwing a bone to those of you paranoid about breaking your phone with a new USB 3.0 flash drive featuring a cartoonishly long microUSB port that can reach past the thickest case.

Available in 16GB to 64GB capacities, the largest version sells for $US65 and comes with a free accompanying app letting you schedule and manage data backups whenever the drive is connected to your phone. And not pictured is a pop-out standard USB port on the other end for connecting to a laptop as well. [SanDisk]
