Mobile was big at this year's show

Kingston had a few products on display, including the new DataTraveler Locker+ G3 series flash drive. The main emphasis of the DataTraveler Locker+ G3 is to provide unmatched security for the user. The flash drive features password protection with onboard hardware encryption.

 
In addition, the DataTraveler Locker+ G3 supports the USB 3.0 interface, providing read speeds of up to 135MB/sec and write speeds of up to 40MB/sec. The flash drive will be available in 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB capacities.
 
Kingston was also showing of its first PCIe SSD, while will fall under the HyperX Predator line. The SSD features an LSI SandForce SF3700 controller and the prototype board that we saw was hitting 1800MB/sec read speeds.

 
We were told that the HyperX Predator would launch during H2 2014.

Moving on over to Patriot, the company was showing off a number of mobile charging products in its suite. It seems as though a lot of players are moving into the mobile market as they see margins on the PC dry up. And Patriot is looking to differentiate itself by including LED flashlights on at least two its mobile charging solutions.


 
The Fuel Active has a 6000 mAh battery, and is designed for “outdoors enthusiasts”. It features a rugged plastic housing, 2-port charging (1A and 2.5A) and an integrated USB cable. It also features a 3-stage LED flashlight along its long side. The LED lights can stay solid, flash, or go into a full strobe effect.
 
Patriot also displayed a smaller, 2000 mAh version of its active line with a metal housing and built in LED flashlight.

 
Lastly, Patriot gave us a glimpse of a thin, flexible ceramic battery -- appropriately named "Flex" -- that was about as thick as a couple of business cards stacked on top of each other. The company says that the battery is simply a prototype at this stage, but it could possibly be used in clothing or perhaps even a backpack to charge your devices, while taking up minimal space.
