Introduction:

If you're a road warrior - or you just need a replacement charger for your laptop, you know that many aftermarket chargers are bulky and quite expensive. The DART from Finsix helps address at least one of those issues by making the "World's Smallest Laptop Charger". I haven't searched the entire world to see if this is true, but the DART certainly is tiny, portable and comes with all the ends I need for my devices. If you have a laptop that is not supported, Finsix will ship you the one you need - for free.

While there isn't a whole lot to a charger review, let's take a quick look at the DART and see what it's all about.

Dart Package

 

First Look:

The DART ships in a relatively small package that showcases the small size of the charger. Also inside the package are enough ends to charge most modern laptops, the charge cable, a soft carrying bag, instructions and a note specifying the use of a couple of ends that look similar. The package is very complete and it had enough connections to charge a Dell I've got on the test bench, my ThinkPad, Acer Chromebook as well as an ASUS Ultrabook I've got kicking around. Again, if your end is not included, they'll ship it to you very quickly - for free.

Bundle
