After only announcing the Fuel portable storage device for the iPad a couple of months ago, LaCie has today announced that they will be releasing a version that will have double the capacity.

Originally only maxing out at 1TB of storage, LaCie has now upped the Fuel’s storage capacity to a max of 2TB.

Both devices will however still work the same, allowing users to export content from their tablet to gain more storage space on the tablet itself, after which they can stream this content wirelessly to up to five devices, without the need for an internet connection.

Fuel does this by creating its own WiFi network, which can then be used as a hotspot when connected to a WiFi network.

Fuel will also work with AirPlay, allowing users to stream content from it to their Apple TV, and it features a battery that is said to last up to ten hours from a single charge.

To use it, users simply need to download the Seagate media app on their iOS, Amazon Kindle or Android device.

The 2TB Fuel will be available in the US from April for $249.99.
