This power adapter for the Apricorn FireWire series of external drives allows you to keep working longer since the drive isn't pulling power from your notebook's battery. Or you can use it without the power adapter when you need to convert from 6 pin to 4 pin. This adapter will work with other FireWire devices that need an external power source.
Ideal companion for laptop firewire
Pros: Cable lengths are not too short nor too long.
Cons: Power adapter has transformer built into plug / can block other outlets. I suggest keeping an extension cord in your kit with this product.
Other Thoughts: Is the only device at this price which adds power to a 4pin firewire port.
Did you find this review helpful?
Pros: this is a very good adapter. the flexibility to move the adapter out of the way from the plug vs having the big 4-pin into 6-pin connector brick, is a great feature.
Other Thoughts: difference between 4-pin firewire and 6-pin firewire is that the 4-pin does not have the 2 other pins that supply 12VDC to the hardware. I recommend this mainly used for laptops with the smaller 4-pin firewire plug that you want to plug the larger 6-pin into it.
