OWC Envoy Portable Bus-Powered USB 3.0 SSD Enclosure for MacBook Air 2012 Mac / PC / USB 3.0, 2.0 & 1.1
Ultra-portable, bus-powered external SSD enclosure designed to complement the 2012 MacBook Air®
The OWC Envoy™ combines elegance and functionality into a sleek, portable external enclosure for re-purposing the factory flash module from a 2012 MacBook Air®. Its tapered aluminum body complements the MacBook Air and is easily carried in coat pockets, backpacks or briefcases.
The SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface also works via USB 2.0 connections for maximum compatibility and Envoy requires no AC power adapter making it the ideal Plug and Play USB bus-powered solution.
The OWC Envoy enclosure is specifically designed for use ONLY with the factory SSD installed in select Apple Macintosh computers. Do NOT attempt to install or use OWC Aura or Aura Pro X SSDs in the Envoy as you may damage the OWC drive, the enclosure, or both, and such damage is not covered under warranty.

Bought to recover files from dead MBA 2012. Fast delivery, simple to install, came up immediately in Finder and very good performance.
Lovely enclosure. Very well designed and crafted. My only disappointment is that, after searching high and low for an M12 SSD enclosure it will only work with an original Apple SSD. Fortunately, this was what I needed it for but it is a shame it doesn't support non Apple original M12 SSDs. Otherwise I would have given it 5 stars.
