This external USB 3.0 mini drive is bus-powered and requires no external power supply. Its black anodized, aircraft-grade aluminum enclosure provides superior heat management and maximum protection. The drive's USB 3.0 interface is based on the high-performance ASMedia 1053e chipset and is backwards compatible with USB 2.0, allowing you to shuttle data from pretty much every modern computer system. In addition to the bus-powered USB port, each mini drive features a blue led activity indicator light visible through the front panel and a DC input on the rear panel, allowing for the use of an optional power adapter (not included). Note: The need to use a DC power adapter could arise, if for example the mini drive were to be connected not directly to the host computer, but further down in a chain of devices, which in turn might already be using all the power supplied by the host computer's port.
