Every single person out there has pretty much owned or at least used a notebook at least once in their lives so you all know how large their AC power adapter can be making it quite difficult to carry them around (even inside a notebook bag they take too much space). Size aside most of the time these are not only hard to find in the market but also quite expensive to replace when they die (if you decide to get a genuine one). Because of these two reasons it really comes as little surprise that many manufacturers have released their own 3rd party AC power adapters which are not only smaller and cheaper than the genuine ones but in some instances they also offer improved electrical efficiency. Huntkey is one such manufacturer and today we will be taking a rather quick look at their X-MAN 90W Universal Notebook Adapter.
Huntkey Enterprise Group, founded in 1995, is a professional provider specialized in the development, design, manufacturing and marketing of power supplies. The products of Huntkey cover a wide variety, including power supplies (1W~250KW), power systems, computer cases, universal notebook adapters, chargers, power supply converters, etc. The industrial parks of Huntkey in Shenzhen and Heyuan and Hefei which cover a total area of over 750,000 square meters, are now the largest IT manufacturing base in China’s mainland. Huntkey with over 7,000 employees has set up its branch companies in Hong Kong, Japan and Europe. Its clients are found all over the world in more than 30 countries and regions, including Lenovo, DELL, etc.
I've tested quite a few high-end notebook AC adapters in the past so just like them the X-MAN 90W by Huntkey is almost half the size of most normal/genuine adapters without however sacrificing power output. According to Huntkey the X-MAN 90W has an MTBF (Mean time Between Failures) of 50.000 hours, an impressive number to say the least. The X-MAN 90W is also widely compatible with most notebooks in the market thanks to the ten included power tips and it also features a nice USB port (5V/2A) with which you can use/charge pretty much every gadget you have from digital cameras, smartphones, MP3 players, speakers and many more. The unit also features three separate failsafe’s to guard your devices such as overvoltage (OVP), over-current (OCP) and short-circuit (SCP) protections. Specs-Wise the X-MAN 90W sounds quite impressive but the time has come to take a closer look.
