LaCie at CES 2014 unveiled a 1TB portable hard drive specifically crafted for iPhone, iPad and Mac users who require more storage on the go. The Fuel drive doesn’t need an Internet connection to wirelessly connect to iOS and OS X devices and offers battery life of up to 10 hours, allowing it to work without a power source. However, when connected to the Internet, the Fuel can also double as a mobile hotspot.

LaCie’s new portable drive also has AirPlay mirroring support, allowing users to stream movies to an Apple TV-connected big screen TV directly from the device. Other features include simultaneous sharing support for up to five devices, USB 3.0 connectivity, Dropbox integration, support for Seagate’s Media app that automatically organizes files by type for easy browsing on a mobile device.

The 1TB LaCie Fuel (check out video after the break) will start selling in the U.S. “soon” for $199.99 a pop – the 2.5-inch hard drive will hit stores in France on February 15th for €219.90.
