Sharkoon Technologies GmbH expands their popular Rapid-Case series with their fastest one yet, which, thanks to its USB 3.1 interface, offers a data transfer rate of up to 10Gb/s.


The Sharkoon Rapid-Case 2.5" USB 3.1 Type C is an external housing which can accommodate 2.5" SATA HDDs or 2.5" SSDs with a maximum height of 9.5mm.

Thanks to its USB 3.1 interface, it offers a data transfer rate of up to 10Gb/s as well as up to 70% increase read and 40% increase write speeds on UASP capable host controllers.

The internal SATA interface supports SATA Revision 3.0 and is also backwards compatible to previous revisions. The Rapid-Case connects via its included cable with two-way Type C plug to every PC, laptop and MacBook with corresponding Type C port.

A discreet status LED next to the USB 3.1 interface indicates operation and data transfer.

2.5" HDDs or SSDs can be installed easily. Unscrew the two housing screws with the provided screw driver and then connecting the hard drive to the controller board. Once that is done slide the drive with the controller board into the housing and then screw into place.

The housing is made from aluminum and provides protection for the drive. It fits into every pants pocket and is for carrying important data thanks to its weight of 83g and slim profile. The design of the housing is minimalist-elegant with a brushed surface finish and is available in both black and silver color versions.

The Sharkoon Rapid-Case 2.5" USB 3.1 Type C is available from authorized retailers.
