Product Overview

Design with Full Purpose

Covered with a leather pouch, much more friction force has been added to the device, so you can keep it fixed firmly in case it falls on the ground. Other than that, the unique colour combination is also a fashion bonus.

Delicate Design and Portable Size

The case is made of leather and has many dissipation holes on the sides for heat releasing; approximately the size of a smartphone, UTE02 is designed in miniature size with a foldable Thunderbolt™ 3 cable which is portable for you wherever you go.

Flexible and Simple Installation

Install the connector holder onto the cable in case it falls off the enclosure, then the Thunderbolt™ 3 cable can be firmly connected to it.

Excellent Dissipation Design

UTE02 owns quite a few small holes for dissipation, so that heat can be released through them when the device is being used.

Reversible Port, Less Damage

The new generation Thunderbolt™ 3 port is designed for reversible use, which means either side of your cable connector is alright for connection, hence this has largely reduced the possibility of damage and lengthened its lifespan.

As Swift As Lightning

Largely different than the previous released USB specifications 3.0 and 3.1, Thunderbolt™ 3 port provides you a blazingly faster speed ever, you can transfer large files and videos in an instant.


To improve working efficiency and effectiveness, it can be applied for different devices. In Information age, speed is everything, with UTE02, you can transfer files fast and smoothly because the Thunderbolt™ 3 port reads and writes data up to 2200MB/s.

• Small and portable storage, mixed with aluminium alloy design providing NVMe SSD giving maximum theoretical speed up to 3,940 MB/s.
• The WAVELINK Thunderbolt™ 3 Enclosure provides double the read/write speeds of USB 3.1 upto 2200MB/s Read and write speeds ,
• Heat sink integrated giving the best ventilation for NVMe SSD running at high speed.
• 0.5m Thunderbolt™ 3 pigtail cable (Intel Certified) ensure NVMe SSD best performance.

The arrival of the solid-state drive (SSD) has revolutionised the speed at which modern PCs perform common tasks. This is because SSDs have no moving parts, compared to larger, bulkier mechanical drives, thus they store information on memory chips. This means that accesses, reads and writes are many, many times faster

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product highly recommended Purchased the WAVLINK Thunderbolt 3 enclosure. Very happy - nice, small portable, good heat dissipation, work well and solidly built! Not difficult to install the NVME SSD: open up the case, pop out the insides, install SSD, attach heatsink, close it up and you are good to go. I have tested other Thunderbolt 3 bus-powered cases and this is just as good and more affordable than others I have used. I now have several of the WAVLINK Thunderbolt 3 enclosures and will be back should I need more.
