Our onsite reporters have seen a lot of nifty products at Computex in Taipei and Kingmax’s waterproof SD card is one of them.
We have no idea who would have a use for this product other than people who often forget to empty their pockets before diving into the pool. That said, this falls firmly into the “kinda pointless but kinda cool,” category.
Representing the highest capacity of waterproofed SD card, Kingmax’s 32GB SDHC, uses the company’s patented PIP technology and is waterproof, dustproof and shockproof, protecting your data and keeping your snaps safe, rain or shine.
Without knowing how much they cost, it’s hard to say who’d want to use these. If they’re relatively cheap, we’d go ahead and buy them just for the sake of it. Can’t hurt to have a little extra protection from the elements, right? However, if they’re pricey, we’d say skip it. We’ve yet to lose an SD card to water damage so paying a premium price just to guarantee it never happens seems silly.
