The Kingston DataTraveler Locker+ G2 is a USB flash drive with built-in password protection and a smart metal shell.

When you plug it in to your PC for the first time, you're prompted to enter a password and your contact details. When you next plug it in to any PC, you're shown a window asking for a password to gain access to the drive. You can also view contact information without entering a password, so helpful souls who find your drive can get it back to you without seeing any other information stored on it.

Kingston DataTraveler Locker+ G2 16GB

The DataTraveler doesn’t support USB3, so we weren't expecting fast transfer speeds. 10.8MB/s writing large files and 15.4MB/s reading them is par for the course for normal USB, as is 1.76MB/s and 7MB/s for writing and reading small files.

This is a smart and well-made drive with easy-to-use encryption. It's about the same price as a 16GB USB3 drive from Corsair, which will be quicker, but if you're after easy encryption it's a good buy.
