D-Link unveiled the DIR-510L, a portable router that also has a 4000 mAh battery for exceptional router life as well as portable device charging. The router creates an 802.11ac Wi-Fi access point at 750 Mbps combined over the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands perfect for sharing cellular data connections with friends, family, coworkers, and that guy that never remembers to bring his own connection to conventions.
The device also features connectivity via the mydlink SharePort mobile app, enabling users to stream data from a USB mass storage device attached to the router’s USB port. Devices such as tablets and phones plugged into the USB port can take some sips from the router’s healthy 4000 mAh battery.
The D-Link DIR-510L Portable Router and Charger will be available in January for $99.
