Corsair Padlock 2

Manufacturer: Corsair

Unless you have absolutely no need for a PC in your life, you probably know what a USB flash drive is. In months gone by, we have seen USB drives reach blistering speed. However, speed is not always the most important thing. Introducing the successor to the Corsair Padlock is the Corsair Padlock 2.


The Corsair Padlock and Padlock 2 have built-in hardware encryption that can only be unlocked by a PIN. This type of technology doesn’t come with the fastest read and write speeds but when you want your data to be safe, 256-bit hardware encryption is the way to go.

  1. Nice review. I bought the 16GB version and have to say I am very happy. I wish the drive was a little faster and smaller but it’s not terribly slow and it’s the best solution for me.

    I did quite a bit of research and tested other solutions. I had my heart set on the IronKey but I found out you cannot use that drive on just any computer. A lot of public and client computers do not allow portable executables to be run from external drives. The IronKey requires you to run its built-in login executable to gain access to the drive.

    Since the Padlock2 is now encased in epoxy, I think its security is more than sufficient. I even added software encryption so I also have an encrypted container for items I really want to secure.
