Salutations, friends, I hope you are doing well today. Here is important information about High Endurance micro SD cards. Have you heard of them? If you are frequently replacing your micro SD cards because they wear out then High Endurance  may be a good solution for you.

Writing and erasing are the two actions which are typically hardest on the life of flash cards, so applications like video surveillance, body cams, dash cams and data loggers typically warrant replacement of regular micro SD cards every one month to two years depending on use. The cost of replacing worn out cards adds up, and the consequences of not replacing cards often enough can lead to data loss. Nobody wants to pull their micro SD card to review an event and find it wasn’t recording.

High Endurance micro SD cards were designed with these use cases in mind, utilizing more durable MLC flash chips combined with advanced wear-leveling algorithms to extend the life of a micro SD card in a continuous read/write/erase environment. It is true, they do cost a little more than typical commercial grade cards, but their longer life and better dependability mean they deserve consideration.

While standard flash card life is typically measured in TBW (terabytes written), High Endurance card life expectancy is measured in hours. This is because they are made for continuous use.  Keep in mind there are 8,760 hours in a year.
