The included USB-C cable with tethered USB-A adapter lets plug into nearly anything, anywhere. Connect it to past, present, and future Macs and PCs and iOS, Android, and Chrome OS devices. It is bus-powered so that you can free yourself from power adapter limitations. Cut the cord and take performance storage where you need it from the desktop to a mountaintop.
