Shell Thunder is the only NVMe SSD enclosure on the market with active cooling and that is designed specifically for Thunderbolt 3. Don't accept substitutes from people selling USB-C enclosures that technically fit in a Thunderbolt 3 port but don't bring TB3 speeds. Take flight with Shell Thunder!

Why buy our Shell Thunder SSD Enclosure?

Lightning Speed

Shell Thunder works with any standard NVMe SSD, testing at 2,700 MB/s Read and 1,300 MB/s Write. You can download, edit, and upload whole movies in a few seconds. *Tested with WD Black SSD 1TB (2018) and MacBook Pro 15 (2018).

Active Cooling

Shell Thunder is the only high-performance Thunderbolt 3 enclosure engineered for active cooling. We stress-tested this design with an Intel SSD by writing 3 terabytes in 60 minutes. The whisper-quiet 4000 PM fan kept Shell Thunder as cool as the palms of our hands. 

Ideal for m.2 NME SSDs

Intel Certified: macOS and Windows compatible, powered by Intel Thunderbolt 3 technology. Shell Thunder is designed for 2280 and 2260 m.2 NVME and ACHI SSDs. Note: Thunder is NOT compatible with m.2 SATA SSDs, Apple OEM SSDs, or Fledging Feather SSDs.

Rugged, stylish, portable

Carry your projects, creativity, and fun in your pocket and work wherever you want. Thunder's anodized aluminum case protects it all.

Built for Thunderbolt 3 with all the tools you need

The market is full of USB-C enclosures that work in Thunderbolt 3 ports. Almost none are built for Thunderbolt 3 ports and Thunderbolt 3 speeds. Shell Thunder is. We ship it with a screwdriver, a thermal cooling pad, a Thunderbolt 3 cable, and installation instructions.

    The enclosure works like a charm. The reason I bought it was for the active cooling. It keeps my 2TB nvme ssd cool. Quality is top notch!

    Fledging Thunderbolt 3 fan cooled enclosure

    Posted by Rohan on Dec 20th 2019

    Beautifully made and runs perfectly with a Samsung 970 Evo Plus 1T SSD with no thoughput slowdown due to overheating when doing a heavy write load to the drive such as a 200GB back file. Windows 10 defaults to not using the write cache for external devices now so you need to enable the write cache use otherwise its slower than a normal external USB3 HDD at writing defeating the whole purpose of an SSD and Thunderbolt 3 enclosure which is for me faster speed.
