ADATA PV100 Power Bank Detailed Features
We’re going to do a quick comparison of the ADATA PV100 Power Bank with one of the cell phones that could really benefit from having a spare power source around. The phone in the foreground is a Motorola DROID RAZR, and it’s the Skinny-Minnie of the DROID family. The flat portion on the back is only 7mm thick, compared to the 8mm thickness of the ADAT PV100. In reality, they’re both very thin, and similar in size and weight. Although one has the classic DROID appearance and the other one looks more like an “i-something”, I think they go well together. Both are sleek and smooth and will slide easily into a pocket.
Here we get a better look at the relative thickness of the ADATA PV100 Power Bank and the DROID RAZR. Both are impressively thin….
Looking at the business end of each of the devices shows that when you compare the PV100 to the typical “DROID Hump“, it’s actually thinner by a fair margin.
When the ADATA PV100 Power Bank is in service, this is what it will look like if you use the supplied cable. There’s not a lot of room to maneuver with the short cable, and if you need to pick up your phone the best thing to do is place the phone and charger back-to-back. If you have a longer cable that was supplied with your portable electronic device feel free to use that. Although the shorty cable has some limitations, it is easy to carry and fits in well with the intended use for the PV100, which is to maximize portability and convenience.
Now that we’ve seen how the ADATA PV100 Power Bank integrates with a typical energy customer, let’s look at how it compares to some other external battery packs that I currently have in rotation.
