Patriot sells external hard drive with built-in battery

The US memory and SSD maker Patriot has released a rather interesting external hard drive that gets powered by an integrated battery that allows the user to work with it virtually anywhere.

Called AERO the new company product offers extreme portability and flexibility and comes equipped with built-in Wi-Fi 802.11n that can connect it to up to five other external devices such as smartphones and tablets. A USB 3.0 port serves for cable connections should the user not want to use the integrated Wi-Fi. As to the battery it allows the hard drive to work for up to six hours – and there’s a battery indicator that shows how much power is left.

Available in two models – with 500 GB and 1 TB of capacity – the Patriot AERO comes with a 2-year warranty. As to pricing the 500 GB model sells for USD 160, while the more spacious 1 TB version will set you back with USD 200.
