Full Review: Limited-Edition Kingston 2024 Mini Dragon USB Flash Drive

Start the New Year on the right note by securing your cherished memories and important files with a blend of style, functionality, and flair.

Kingston Technology, a global leader in memory products and technology solutions, recently launched its Limited-Edition Kingston 2024 Mini Dragon USB drive in celebration of 2024, the year of the dragon.

The new Kingston Mini Dragon USB Drive also makes as a perfect gift that offers both in securing essential data and a touch of sophistication for yourself or your loved ones. The adorable design of the new Kingston USB Flash Drive can be an excellent addition to any collector’s trove.

Kingston Technology sent us a unit to gain a hands-on experience, allowing us to share its impressive features with you.

The new Kingston 2024 Mini Dragon USB Flash Drive is priced at PHP1,388 and available through Kingston’s network of retail and online from December 25 onwards. Customers will also receive a limited-edition Kingston Keychain for free when you purchase a Mini Dragon USB Flash Drive.

So, let’s dive into the review.


For its packaging, Kingston chose to depart from the conventional thick cardboard box design for the 2024 Mini Dragon USB Flash Drive. Instead, it is encased in a stylish and adorable dragon egg design for its packaging.

The cute case is made from durable polycarbonate plastic material which comes in two parts. First, the base features a cracked egg design in a matte finish with a white color. It showcases the Kingston logo and highlights the 128GB storage capacity printed on the front.

The top cover egg shell design is transparent that allows you to view the enclosed Mini Dragon that’s positioned at the center within another layer of clear plastic material.

At the top tip of the transparent cover, you’ll find a ball chain and a warranty card attached.

Opening the plastic egg case is easy, just simply remove the two tapes on each side and gently lift the top transparent cover.

Build Quality and Design

As soon as we get our hands on the Mini USB Flash Drive, the adorable dragon immediately captivated us with its signature Kingston mini collection design incorporating the same classic ovular shape design.

This lovable, rounded green dragon features a tiny yellow horn and green wings that sits atop a white cloud.

The mini dragon’s overall body material features a smooth rubber casing, offering protection of the files stored inside the USB drive against accidental drops in any direction.

For portability, the tail is designed as a key ring loop to put your ball chain making it easy to carry files anywhere and everywhere.

To access the USB thumb drive, you simply need to pull out the mini dragon’s punk gold hair. Additionally, the USB plug features an all-matte gold finish. You’ll find a printed Kingston logo along with the indication of its 128GB storage capacity on the USB plug.

The thumb drive has an all-matte gold finish

It features a locking design to prevent the USB from detaching from the mini dragon, safeguarding all your valuable files from potential loss.

I found out that the USB thumb drive has a convenient lock design that securely holds it in place, preventing it from falling out easily.

Some Kingston images suggest you can attach the mini dragon USB flash drive to your bag’s zipper, but I wouldn’t recommend doing so.


The Mini Rabbit USB flash drive from last year came with 64GB of storage. This year, it has undergone an upgrade, now boasting a large 128GB storage capacity.

Kingston claims that the 128GB storage is able to store over 8 hours of 1080p videos, approximately 36,000 high-quality photos (at 3.5MB per photo), a million pages of Word documents, or up to 30,000 high-quality songs.

It also features a USB 3.2 Gen 1 interface that can delivers speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0, reaching up to 200 MB/s.

The Mini Dragon USB Drive is still user-friendly and compatible with USB 2.0 or USB 3.2 Gen 1. It can be used on all traditional operating systems such as Windows 11, Windows 10, Mac OS (v. 10.12.6 +), Linux (v. 2.6x +), and Chrome OS.

We measured its read and write performance using Amorphous Disk Mark 4.0. So far, we got good results on the 64GB capacity, it’s capable of reaching maximum reads at 231.48 mb/s and max write speeds at 91.46 mb/s which is more than Kingston claims on the transfer speeds of the device.

We also tried to transfer 5.31GB of files which includes videos and photos from my MacBook Pro directly to the Mini Dragon USB Flash Drive using a USB dongle. It took us around 2 minutes 31 seconds to complete the file transfer which is still very fast.


To give you that ultimate piece of mind the 2024 Kingston Mini Dragon USB flash drive is backed by a 5-year warranty and legendary Kingston reliability.

If in case you’ve experience difficulty during the installation or subsequent use of a Kingston product you also get free technical support. You may call the toll fee: +886-3-500-1715 or visit https://www.kingston.com/en/support
