* Unique, practical, tiny flash drives that fit on your keychain
* From 8GB to 32GB of storage for real usability
* All under $30
Although cloud storage has become a convenient way to store and access your files, it still has major drawbacks. With high prices, a dependency on the service provider, network access, and finicky speeds, many people still turn to USB flash drives as a reliable way to store and transport files.
Thankfully, USB flash drives have come a long way since the chunky blocks people used to carry around in their backpacks. Today, decently priced flash drives with a very usable amount of storage can be the size of a coin, and fit seamlessly on your keychain for easy transportation to and from work or school.
We’ve pulled the highest reviewed mini USB flash drives from Amazon and put together this list of the top 7. Most are waterproof, shockproof, and dustproof, and all have between 8 and 32GB of storage (for more storage, check out our 4 best hard drive list).
1. Sandisk Cruzer Flash Drive
Incredibly low-profile and very well priced (but only able to fit 8GBs of data) this Sandisk Cruzer is great if you don’t carry a large quantity of files but want the advantages of a tiny flash drive.
2. Sandisk Cruzer Blade Flash Drive
The Sandisk Cruzer Blade is slightly larger, but still very small considering it packs a respectable 32GBs of storage.

6. Samsung BAR Flash Drive
Samsung’s BAR flash drive is minimal, powerful, and X-ray proof – an under-appreciated flash drive feature. It’s also magnet-proof, water-proof, shock-proof and temperature-proof, meaning it’ll hold up to any conditions.[caption id="attachment_58044" align="aligncenter" width="405"] Image courtesy of Amazon[/caption]
7. Samsung Flash Drive Fit
In terms of mini flash drives, the Samsung Fit is unbeatable. Its ridiculously small, and somehow manages 32GB of storage.[caption id="attachment_58045" align="aligncenter" width="386"] Image courtesy of Amazon[/caption]
