Special features

The Extreme Portable SSD 1TB is water and shock resistant. It's also extremely compact, which makes it a good portable storage medium. A strap can be used to attach it to a carabiner, for example, and transport it easily.

The hard disk is extremely small and has rounded corners. Its black rubber coating ensures that it has a good grip. All in all, you can see its "outdoor suitability".

Does the drive draw power from the USB port, or is an external power supply connected?

You don't need a separate power supply, the hard drive draws power from the USB port.
