Software for wiping USB drives

Hi, I'm looking for software or hardware that can run and allows for wiping USB drives.

I currently use dban but I'm looking for something a little more plug and erase.

Thanks in advance.

Hi you can try

It uses quick format prior to disk wiping for faster performance.

Works with USB sticks, SD cards and other portable memory devices.

Small, light, does not contain adware.

Respect the privacy of your information, does not try to connect to remote server and does not send any information over internet.

It feels like I've tried a hundred different wiping tools over the years, although the real number is probably closer to a dozen. The only one I've found that lets me do what needs to be done every single time is WinHex.

It's a full blown disk editor so wiping is just one of its functions. I also can't tell you that it's the most intuitive tool you'll ever use, not at first, but once you understand how it works, you can do the job. Every time.
