We discuss the possibility of extracting |Vub| from various spectra of inclusive B decays, without large systematic errors which usually arise from having to model the Fermi motion of the heavy quark. This strategy can be applied to the electron energy spectrum, as well as the hadronic mass spectrum. Modulo violation of local hadron-parton duality, the theoretical error in the extraction is estimated to be less than 10%.
