MicroSD cards can be used in a variety of situations – whether it be climbing Mount Everest or playing Nintendo Switch. Because of the wide range of usage areas for the small storage cards, companies have researched and developed cards that meet the different needs of costumers. Some cards are made to be fast, working in cold temperatures or to be able to store vast amounts of data. Now SanDisk has released a card that is designed to last for 120,000 hours, or 13 years, of continuous usage.
SanDisk’s new microSD is called “MAX ENDURANCE” and is designed to be used in either home security cameras or in a dash cam. SanDisk themselves says that the card will give their costumers “continuous peace of mind for years to come”, due to the the being ‘engineered… for continuous recording and re-recording.’
