ADATA Power Bank PV110 review
Posted on 2-Dec-2014 12:55 | Filed under: Reviews


Note: this review is by a Geekzone user (kiwiuk) selected randomly to receive an Power Bank PV110. 

Recently I entered a competition on Geekzone where the prize was to receive and review a 256GB SSD or a Power Bank PV110. Never having much luck with competitions I thought “in for a penny”.

Well, I know which I hoped to win, imagine my surprise when I received an email telling me I had won! Imagine my disappointment when I realised it wasn’t the coveted SSD!

Three weeks later I have had the chance to thoroughly test the Adata Power Bank PV110 and came to realise that I never knew how much this family needed such a device. And when I say family, I really mean 1 teenage daughter who is forever on an iPad or iPhone when travelling in the back of the car. Along with the wife and yours truly there was never enough power ports to keep us all going leading to the inevitable…..my phone’s battery getting lower and lower whilst the womenfolk carry on texting, chatting, playing music, games and whatever else it is they do.



With a brushed aluminium finish in your choice of several colours, (mine was a pleasing on the eye gold) dual USB ports, putting out 2.1A and 1A respectively for a total of 3.1 amps, and a combined output of 10,400mAh which is enough to charge most phones about five times and most tablets one and a half times; this Power Bank became quite the indispensable travelling companion.

Coming supplied with a usb to slim mini-usb adapter I plugged it straight into the apple wall socket and waited until the 4 led light were blue indicating a full charge. The Positive Temperature Coefficient protection means the battery temperature is monitored, preventing any damage that may come about from overheating.

Over the next three weeks it was used to keep three iPhones, one GPS, one Digital Camera and an iPad on the go. It was used inside cars, walking around the shopping mall, whilst having a picnic in the great outdoors and when studying for exams. And it did exactly what it was designed for, no mess, no fuss; top up charging on tap. I liked the way I was not tethered to a wall socket once my iPhone’s own internal battery started to wane, I could carry on watching/listening/surfing from the comfort of the armchair without downtime.

I can thoroughly recommend this and at price of $40 or so I think it’s worth having the spare charge capacity in your glove box, the wife’s handbag or on the daughter’s study table.

Normally, I would never have given a portable charger a second thought but I’m glad I won the competition, thanks Geekzone and Adata ?
