NewerTech Voyager S3

Use and swap 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch SATA drives with this USB 3.0 / USB 2.0 drive dock.

USB 3.0 / USB 2.0
Mac / PC / 2 Year NewerTech Enclosure Limited Warranty
Swap Drives at Will
Accessing multiple drives couldn't be simpler as Voyager's unique design makes hot-swapping drives a breeze. Just insert any standard 2.5" or 3.5" SATA drive with up to 6.0TB capacity into the Voyager, and connect it to your Mac or PC via USB 3.0 or USB 2.0. There's nothing else to install or configure!

When you're finished using a drive, a simple press of the eject button lifts the drive off the SATA connector, allowing the drive to be easily removed.
Perfect for Data, Photo, and Video Workflows
Managing libraries of drive data just gets easier when a Voyager is integrated into your workflow. Save yourself the time of installing a drive into a computer, or the cost maintaining multiple external enclosures, power supplies, and interface cables. And unlike internal SATA connectors inside a computer or external enclosure, Voyager's SATA drive connector is made to be reused over-and-over to ensure long-term reliability.
Universal Capability
With the USB 3.0 / USB 2.0 cable included, an auto-switching power supply for worldwide compatibility, and flexible operating system compatibility, the NewerTech Voyager can traverse your data universe with ease.

Note: These Voyager docks are designed to spin down the hard drive and sleep after 15 minutes of inactivity, even if "Put drives to sleep when possible" is disabled in System Preferences. This is a power-saving and heat management feature.
