D-Link DIR-510L Wireless AC750 Travel Router With Battery Now Shipping
It wasn’t that long ago that I added a portable router to my standard pack whenever leaving the house for vacation or business travel. It’s just so handy to be able to setup a Wi-Fi hotspot wherever I need one, and even if I don’t need to share a single for-fee wireless connection, it comes out of the bag because of the time it saves setting up all the other network-needing devices that also travel with me and the family.
I saw D-Link’s DIR-510L at CES and it offers most of the usual features. $100 may not seem like the right price at first, but with but the built in battery, that can power it or charge a device, and ability to connect to a cellular USB dongle make it stand out it what is becoming a welcomingly crowded field. Full PR after the click.
