Lexar Jumpdrive Secure II Plus - now with a fuel gauge

Flash drives are everywhere. I know very few people that don't have one. I am constantly plugging mine into computers and transferring data back and forth. The most frustrating thing is when you get that wonderful error telling you that it's full.

Now Lexar is trying to prevent those errors from popping up by putting a gauge on the front that tells you how much space you have used on the drive. Though it's still up to you to actually delete files and make room for new ones. The gauge uses E-Ink to display what percentage of the drive has been used.

You can get these in flavors ranging from 512MB up to 4GB starting at $20.
