For those on the market for a mobile storage device to expand the limited capacity of their iPad (or any mobile devices for that matter) the LaCie Fuel is a viable option.

Physically, the drive looks something like a cross between a standard external hard drive and a DVD drive – somewhere between the two in size.  With just one port, a Micro-USB 3.0 port, the port can be used for charging with the included USB cable and power adapter, or to connect the device to a computer. When connected to a computer, apart from charging, the Fuel will now work as a portable bus-powered hard drive.

The Fuel is very easy to use. Switch it on, wait for the blue LED to go solid then look for the wireless network on your device. You can rename the SSID to make it easier to identify, but the Lacie part of the default name makes it pretty obvious. Once connected, you simply go to in a web-browser or use the free Seagate Media app on an iOS device

It will keep a hefty 1TB of movies, photos, and files from taking up space on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac, and has a 10-hour battery life. Sync it up and play media all day without cables or an internet connection. $199
