    I had purchased a USB memory stick, Patriot XT 32G.
    Lost the cap.
    Do you sell cap only ?
    Where can I get one ?
    Thank you
    Walter Chu

  2. DT Says:

    Hi Walter,
    I’m sorry that you lost your cap. You can find caps on ebay that are a generic fit for any USB connector. –> Flash Drive Caps
    If this would look good on your Patriot flash drive is another question. If an actual replacement cap is important to you, you could try contacting the customer service on the Patriot website. Maybe they will send you one, especially in case of a still valid warranty.

    Alternatively for the future, you could purchase Flash Drives with a retractable USB Connector.

  4. Strategic Marketing Says:

  5. Randy Micah Says:

    Looks like reasonable USB price for its quality

  6. 24 Hour Locksmith Says:

    I like the patriot one, it looks sweet and 32GB is just the right size, I can’t believe how much cheaper these are getting recently.

  7. Global Matrix Leads Says:

    Nice designs. Some of them are a common look though.

  8. Scott @ Flash Blogger Says:

  12. DT Says:

  14. Admin @ Web Design Says:

    Are the Patriots faster than the Corsair Voyagers. I have the 8G Voyager and it has really slowed down over time.

  15. DT Says:

    c3mdigital,
    if you have the regular Voyager than the new Xporter Rage as well as the Xporter Magnum should be faster. I guess some flash drives can become slower after some time due to wear and tear or because the host computer has become cluttered up.
