The Fuel wireless hard drive with increased capacity will arrive later this month and will offer more storage space than all its 2.5-inch competitors.

LaCie introduced the Fuel wireless hard drive back in January at CES 2014, but only in a version that provides 1 TB of storage. Now, the company has just announced a refresh of the device that doubles the amount of storage space available and makes the LaCie Fuel the largest 2.5-inch wireless hard drive on the market.

According to the official press release, the LaCie Fuel "is the ideal cable–free, portable solution for movie buffs, photographers and others to gain 2TBs of on–the–go access and storage for iPad® or iPhone® and Mac®." Its features include the following highlights:

  • wireless streaming to up to five devices without Internet connection
  • hotspot capability when connected to Internet via WiFi
  • Airplay compatibility for mirroring content
  • around 10 hours of battery life

The drive works with the Seagate Media app to easily navigate content on iPad/iPhone, Android devices and Amazon's Kindle. It can be already preordered via LaCie's online store for $249.99 and will begin shipping later this month, when it will also become available through LaCie resellers worldwide. The 1 TB version will remain available for a price of $199.99.
