It's official: In-car CD players are so last century. If you're not listening to your music via a portable MP3 player or USB drive in your car, then you may as well give up on the luxuries of modern motoring altogether.

Okay, we won't be that harsh on you, but flash drives and in-car MP3 connections are easily the best way to take your music collection on the move. Many new cars come with iPod connections and USB slots and there are plenty of aftermarket units available too.

If you don't fancy having a large USB stick protruding from your dashboard, Verbatim's Store 'n' Go Car Audio USB drive could be for you. The experts in portable media have created one of the smallest flash drives available, perfect for storing thousands of songs whilst remaining unobtrusive and discreet.

This means less risk of accidentally knocking it, and lower risk of it being spotted by the less salubrious members of society too. The device packs 8GB of storage into the tiny drive (enough for as many as 2,000 songs) and weighs next to nothing. In fact, your biggest risk is losing it on the way to the car, it's that small.

Simple, easy to use and unobtrusive - that's how we like our gadgets. The Store 'n' Go Car Audio USB drive is available now for $29.99.
