Very Few Rugged Portable Hard Drives Meet All Eight

There are many portable hard drives. However, most – including models that claim to be “rugged” are too fragile to be moved around safely and are not even close to meeting the Military Standard MIL-STD-810F transit drop test! That’s because most have no shock protection or use outdated technology.

Olixir Developed a Military-Grade “Rugged” Portable Hard Drive

We developed a portable hard drive, the Mobile DataVault 2LX, with proprietary shock protection technology that not only meets, but easily EXCEEDS the MIL-STD-810F transit drop test. This test requires surviving 26 4-foot drops on all surfaces of the drive onto a hard surface. You won’t find a more durable and versatile portable hard drive. And its less expensive than most military portable hard drives.

Compare Us

Hard drives are at risk of damage with couple-inch drops, knocks, or bumps. The Mobile DataVault 2LX is among the very few portable hard drives that features patented ULTRA-RUGGED SHOCK PROTECTION. Most portable drives, including a few that claim to be “rugged”, do not pass the Military Standard Transit Drop Test MIL-STD-810F. Unlike flimsy hard drive enclosures, this product is a complete assembled solution with much higher shock protection. Our drive not only passes this standard, it exceeds the standard.


Highly Durable & Reliable to Keep Your Data Safe

Our portable hard drive uses highly reliable internal drives and provides over 10,000 Gs of patented shock protection in a high-impact case, which keeps your data protected from drops. This drive exceeds the very challenging MIL-STD-810F Transit Drop Test.

High Capacity

Choose from 500GB to 1TB of native capacity – much larger than flash drives, and equal to hundreds of CDs and thousands of floppy disks. Capacity is larger than most tapes.

High Data Transfer Rate

With 5400-7200 RPM, this drive can move a Gigabyte data in less than 40 seconds.

Amazing Reliability Backed by a Two-Year Guarantee!

We confidently provide a two-year warranty, including coverage for any damage caused by drops!

Easy to Install & Use

This drive features plug-and-play functionality with Windows 2000+, Macintosh OS, and Linux.

Bus Powered

Our USB 2.0 cable powers the drives from most brands of laptops.

Small Handheld Package That’s Stackable & Stands Vertically

At 4.4 x 7.5 x 1.4 inches this drive is about the size of a VHS tape.

Ultra-Flexible Interface

Can be used interchangeably with USB 2.0, or plug into a 5.25″ docking bay!

Available via GSA contract GS-35F-0538P.
