Kingston i-Temp microSD scales Everest Competition

Each year, up to one million Brits hit up ski slopes across the world, armed with a camera to capture those memories. That's a lot of high altitude and low temperature shooting, so how can you be sure that the microSD card you choose will be up to the task? Kingston has been doing some extreme research, sending the Kingston I-Temp microSD card up Mount Everest, enduring temperatures as low as -60 degrees. It was the only card to survive the mountain without any errors. To celebrate this, we are giving THREE lucky winners the chance to win one! 

Crowned ‘Adventurer of the year' in 2016, Robin Trygg became the youngest person in the world to climb up 8,848 metres to the summit of Everest in 2011. He has since scaled the world's tallest mountain from both the north and south sides – enduring temperatures down as low as -60 degrees. To ensure perfect image capture (with transfer speeds up to 90MB/sec), Robin's professional photography partner, Peter Svensson, has tested a number of camera/card combinations in extreme conditions, including the summit of Everest, and found only one product used was ‘error free' in every environment. That product is the i-Temp microSD card from Kingston. The i-Temp part of the name, means ‘Industrial temperature' – guaranteeing results in extreme conditions.

These heroic microSD cards are UHS-I U1, can hold up to 32GB of data each and retail for close to £60. KitGuru has teamed up with Kingston to offer THREE LUCKY WINNERS the chance to own one!  All you have to do is answer these 3 simple questions:-
