LAS VEGAS--The new Seagate Wireless Plus is essentially a portable drive with a built-in battery life and built-in Wireless-N access point.

Out of the box, the device comes included with a USB 3.0 adapter, which also charges its battery when plugged into a computer, and a separate power adapter for use without a computer.

The larger storage space and the longer battery life doesn't affect the Wireless Plus' physical size much; it's still very compact.

When not used with the USB 3.0 adapter, the Wireless Plus gets even more compact. You can cover its port with an included lid.
