We first saw the new ADATA PV110 at COMPUTEX 2014 last month and we were immediately impressed by its many improvements over the older PV100 model. First, the plastic body has been replaced with a brushed aluminum finish in your choice of several stylish colors. Past that metal, we find a huge boost in capacity too, getting bumped to an impressive 10,400mAh. That’s enough to charge most phones about five times and most tablets one and a half times.
And while it would have been intriguing to see 3.1 amps pumped through a single USB port, that’s not exactly the case with the PV110. Instead, it has dual USB ports, putting out 2.1A and 1A respectively for a total of 3.1 amps. If you’re worried about the battery getting piping hot, especially with that aluminum body, don’t fret. ADATA has included Positive Temperature Coefficient protection. This means the battery tempreature is monitored, preventing any damage that may come about from overheating.
Look for the ADATA PV110 at Amazon and Newegg soon with an MSRP of $29.99. Our COMPUTEX hands-on video and the full press release are embedded below.
