For today’s review we will be looking at the D-Link Wi-Fi AC 750 portable router and charger – the SharePort Go III (DIR-510L). This multipurpose device allows users to share Internet connections whether they are 3G/4G, Wi-Fi or Ethernet-based.
With simultaneous dual band it provides uninterrupted performance using 5 GHz channel and transfer speeds of 300 or 433 MB/s.
But there’s more, as the Wi-Fi AC 750 also is a portable charger featuring a 4000 mA battery to replenish most mobile devices. If attaching a USB drive to this unit you can store and share media files using the free mydlink SharePort mobile app or through a web interface.
The D-Link Wi-Fi AC750 arrives in a white cardboard box with a picture of the device on the front along with a listing of some of its features. Looking at the back we see a picture of the unit’s connections, inputs and buttons along with three paragraphs describing its capabilities and a QR code.
On one package side has a list of the Contents, Minimum Requirements, Power Input/Output and the name of the Mobile App to use in conjunction with the device. The opposite side shows how the D-Link SharePort Go III (DIR-510L) can function as a charger, remote USB storage, wireless storage/server device and portable battery.
Opening the package we find the SharePort Go III (DIR-510L) portable router and charger, a power adapter with a micro-USB connector on one end, a quick install guide and warranty. The device measures14.0 x 5.9 x 1.6 cm (5.5 x 2.3 x 0.63 inches) and weighs 154 g (5.43 ounces)
The bulk of the unit is comprised of the rechargeable 4000 mA battery. It is composed of a white colored plastic with the D-Link logo on the front upper half and the model number on the bottom. The back has the D-Link and SharePort Go III names along with its serial number.
On the top of the unit is the mode switch, which toggles the unit between router mode, charger function and shutting it off. Adjacent to this power control is the WPS (Wi-Fi protected setup) button.
Two USB 2.0 ports are on the right side of the unit with a 1-amp USB port on the top and a 0.5 amp USB port on the bottom. These USB 2.0 ports can be used to charge mobile devices, plug in a 3G/4G modem or connect external drives for wireless access.
Above the 0.5 amp port are LED indicator lights for power and battery status. These LEDs will range from green to orange to red depending on the state of the device.
The bottom has the 10/100 WAN port and the micro USB connector for charging the device. The left side has an opening for the reset button that will require a paperclip to press it.
Here is a size comparison between the SharePort Go III (DIR-510L) and the iPhone 5S. The D-Link device is much bigger, heavier and wider than the iPhone 5S.
