While large storage hard drives traditionally require an additional power supply to operate, the Seagate 'Innov8' external drive is efficient enough to do away with this need. Connecting to computers via a USB-C connection, the Seagate 'Innov8' drive packs 8TB of storage capabilities for users of all kinds to enjoy.
The Seagate 'Innov8' drive is being purported by the brand to be the world's first USB-powered 8TB hard drive. The device uses Seagate's Ignition Boost technology, which is designed to harness electricity from the USB-C connection to operate without needing to be plugged into an AC outlet.
While indeed powerful, efficient and packed with ample storage capabilities, the Seagate 'Innov8' external drive doesn't skimp when it comes to style with a sleek aluminum body.
