This is a turnable mechanism: the central part of the case should be first pulled out by about one centimeter and then turned around by 180 degrees. It is not quite an easy procedure because the fastening is stiff and you can’t take a good grip of the sleek sides of the drive with your fingers. Frankly speaking, this model would look better with an ordinary cap.
The activity indicator is green. It’s not very bright, yet quite visible. There are no accessories to this drive.

It is a compact flash drive with a retractable connector. The rough plastic surface helps you hold the drive in your fingers securely but doesn’t feel nice – it resembles some cheap hard rubber to the touch. The connector’s mechanism is rather stiff. You can open the drive with one hand, but it’s easier with both hands.
The drive lacks an activity indicator. Included with the drive is a very short cord – to wear it on your finger we wonder?
