AC adapter 18 Watt - Travel Kit XO.ADT0A.002 for Acer Iconia A700, A701, Tab A510, Tab A511

Acer Iconia Tab A510 is a little outdated Android tablet launched back in the year 2012, featuring a large 10.1-inches touch-screen, a powerful Quad-Core CPU clocking at 1300 megahertz and a 5 megapixels back facing camera.

Acer sells this tablet with a NVIDIA Tegra 3 chip, holding a good Quad-Core processing unit speeding at 1300 megahertz and 1 GB of RAM. The Acer Iconia Tab A510 has a large 32 GB internal storage memory and a slot for an external memory card, which allows you to store lots of applications, games, pictures and videos without thinking about running out of space.

Acer sells this tablet in two colors, black and gray. The Acer Iconia Tab A510 is a bit heavy comparing with today standards, weighting 24.64 ounces. The Acer Iconia Tab A510 just has 6.9 inches long, but it's able to fit a a 10.1 inches screen. This tablet's thickness of 0.43 inches is a little far from current standards, but it still feels in the user's hand.

Acer equipped the Acer Iconia Tab A510 with an average 10.1-inches screen, and a 800 x 1280 resolution, giving this tablet a regular image quality. This screen uses TFT capacitive technology, and is multi-touch enabled.

This tablet doesn't have a sim card, because it doesn't work with GSM services.

This device has only a 5 megapixels back facing camera. It can also shoot videos in 1280x720 (HD).

This device packs a 9800 mAh big capacity Li-Polymer non-replaceable battery, enough to provide this tablet with an incredible battery duration. An issue to evaluate is that this tablet's battery is non-replaceable so you can't change it when it begins losing capacity, though with its 9800 mAh you will probably buy a new device before that becomes a real problem.

The Acer Iconia Tab A510 also features some interesting features like Bluetooth (2.1, EDR), GPS Navigation and NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your tablet close to another NFC device or tag), and some sensors likeLight Sensor and Accelerometer.

Acer offers this tablet for $ 75, quite close to other similar tablets.
