Gauntlet Node supports streaming to five devices simultaneously
Patriot Memory has announced the launch of a new portable storage enclosure called the Gauntlet Node. The enclosure is a portable wireless device that has an internal lithium-polymer battery. The enclosure supports any 2.5-inch, 9.5 mm thick hard drive or SSD.
Once the SSD hard drive is installed into the portable wireless enclosure, the Gauntlet Node allows the drive to be accessed wirelessly from tablets, smartphones, and laptops. Patriot says that the Gauntlet Node can connect to up eight devices and can wirelessly share and stream movies, music, and documents to five different devices at the same time.
An app is available for Android and iOS devices allowing the devices to access content stored on the drive.
The enclosure measures 3.39-inches by 5.47-inches by .96-inches and weighs 182.5 g. It supports 802.11 b/g/n and uses SATA II internal connectivity for the drive. It supports hard drives with a maximum capacity of 2 TB, and the internal battery promises 5.5 hours of continuous streaming per charge.
The enclosure is available online right now for $100.

Assuming it does not shut down while charging:
In the car -- plug it into the cigarette lighter.
In the plane -- plug it into AC or USB. Both are becoming more common on aircraft, though Economy usually has only USB in a few seats
At the meeting (limited to 8 total devices) -- plug it into the wall.
While visiting -- Plug it into the wall
At the beach -- You have 4-6hrs of power, you had it plugged in on the way to the beach, right?
While camping -- You have 4-6hrs of power between charges. Recharge with solar charger, car battery, crank charger or other portable power source. Even AC at some campgrounds.
Lots of ways to avoid the battery life issue if you actually think about it instead of declaring it a problem and stop thinking at that point.
