LaCie this week announced a new version of their FUEL wireless hard drive. FUEL is intended to bring networked storage to OS X and iOS devices either attached to your network or with no network at all. The device is essentially a WiFi hotspot with attached storage that can either serve local content or extend a connected WiFi network. The nifty part is the device has a 10 hour battery so you could use it outdoors or long drives with the family, for example.
The device can serve up to five devices at once and it supports Dropbox so syncing files would seem to be easily managed. It’s also compatible with AirPlay so content can be streamed to compatible devices like speakers or Apple TV.
FUEL is available now in 1 TB for $200 and the 2TB model is available for $250 on pre-order.
