WHAT WE DISLIKED:Wasn't able to fully charge tablets
I was very impressed with the ADATA DashDrive Air AE400 and its ability to function as a mobile device charger, wireless hotspot and media streaming tool. The size of the DashDrive Air is perfect to fit in a purse or a jacket pocket. It would fit easily in the center console of my car or a briefcase or laptop bag. There is no reason I couldn’t carry the DashDrive Air around with me to keep my mobile devices charged up and ready to go. Although I was only capable of getting a partial charge on the tablet, I was able to charge the smartphone almost 3 times.
While I didn’t go into great detail about the SD card specifically, the ADATA DashDrive Air AE400 also automatically expands my mobile storage by 32GB with the SD I put in there. It also gives me a database for movies to entertain passengers on road trips. As a portable charger and wireless storage and media streaming device, I think the DashDrive Air is definitely at the top of its class.
At the time of the review, the ADATA DashDrive Air AE400 is listed at $49.99 found on amazon.com with a 1 year warranty. It is a bit more expensive than I would spend on a portable charger or a wireless hotspot. With all of the functionality combined; however, I would definitely spend $50 on the DashDrive Air. For another $20 or so, I can add a 32GB SD card and the AE400 turns into the perfect temporary storage device. We present the ADATA DashDrive Air AE400 with the PureOverclock Great Hardware Award.
