Type, Class and Quality of Micro SD card to use (classic ducky)

The 128MB Micro SD that came with my v1 duck is not a name brand. I am curious to know if there is a certain card or card(s) that the community can recommend for use.. Is there a certain class of card required? (4? 10?). Can anyone recommend a brand name or card. Thanks!

Card class/speed is probably not of that much importance when it comes to the classic Ducky. I guess it's rather difficult to get hold of cards with a storage capacity as low as 128 MB from some well known brand nowadays. I would dare to say it's more or less impossible. They focus on the sizes that are the big bulk of sales and that is probably not anything less than 8 GB (or perhaps 4 GB in some rare cases). I've used my 128 MB card that came with my classic Ducky for many many years now. Haven't had any reason to change it. I've tried bigger cards (my max is at 128 GB I think), but that normally doesn't go along well with the Ducky so it was just a temporary test. There are reasons to why it was shipped with 128 MB only (and the new Ducky is as well). The recommendation is to not use cards bigger than 2 GB, at least for the new Ducky so it should be valid for the classic Ducky as well. I bought a bunch of 128 MB noname cards from Amazon recently and also some 2 GB cards just in case I might need them. Didn't even bother to try to get hold of some cards from known manufacturers since I assumed it would be a fruitless mission.

Thanks for the detailed explanation. I still use my 128 MB that came with my duck still too. Have for at least a year or so with no issues. I want to carry multiple payloads at once on micro sd. This is the reason for my post ultimately. Okay so basically stay 2GB and below for best results. Perfect thank you 😊. I have heard that large cards can bog the ducky down and make it slow. Thanks for the advice. Cheers.
