Dane-Elec Kids Line: LifeBytes USB Drives

USB Drive

Just in time for Back to School Season Dane-Elec has launched an exciting new line of USB drives made specifically for kids, teens, and young adults.

We received one of their 8GB LifeBytes USB drives (designed for young adults) and we love the eye catching design and how compact and unique it is.

Dane-Elec

The LifeBytes USB drives make it a breeze to transport all of your files (documents, videos, music) in style.

LifeBytes drives are compact (only about 1″ square) and fit inside your pocket or a backpack.  Perfect for students and people on the go.

My favorite feature is definitively the capless design and sliding mechanism, there is no need to worry about losing a cap and ending up with an unprotected drive.  You will always be able to slide the connector back inside its “case”.

LifeBytes feature a 5- year warranty from Dane-Elec and are available in single packs of 8GB drives. They can be purchased online or at Target, Staples, BestBuy, Office Depot and other retailers starting at $13.49.

Win it: One lucky US/CAN reader will win a LifeBytes drive (of their choice). Enter to win via Rafflecopter below.

Disclosure: I received a sample of a product to facilitate this post. No other compensation was provided and all views and opinions stated on this post are 100% my own.

    I work in IT for a school board. I use them every day to repair computers that are used by teachers and students. I store diagnostics on them, back up data for students with assertive technology, and copy drivers and patches to them. I also lose them, which sucks! I actually just bought a few new ones today, didn’t see any as cool as these ones though. I’d almost be afraid students and staff might snap them up when I’m not looking.
