Previously, I reviewed HiBoost’s cell phone booster kit that works for the home. After the improvements it created for my cell phone signal at home, I was eager to try their HiBoost Travel 4G 2.0 RV Cell Phone Signal Booster Kit that is ideal for recreational vehicles (RVs).
Priced at $449.99 and available at Amazon, This cell phone booster amplifies 2 GSM, 3G & 4G LTE signals in recreational vehicles and supports Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and all other American carriers. It als0 supports Canadian carriers, such as Rogers Wireless, Telus Mobility, Bell Mobility, and Freedom Mobile.
How it Works
The HiBoost Travel booster intercepts the signal from the closest cell phone tower and then amplifies it. From there, it re-transmits the signal to cell devices within your vehicle.
Numerous features power this travel cell phone booster, including full support of LTE, 4G, 3G, and 2G networks. It also fully supports multiple simultaneous users while they are all on the road together.
Design and Performance
Certified by IC and the FCC, this Bluetooth/WiFi-enabled cell phone booster is rugged and made for the travel experience. It has an industrial level design and sturdy metal construction. Its design also helps effectively dissipate heat from the main unit.
The company’s cloud-based app provides an easy way to monitor the status of your HiBoost Travel signal boosting service across devices using it.
What I Like
What I like about it is why I got it, which is it provides the cell phone boost that it claims to do for the price. And, that is worth its weight in gold as my family and I like to take RV holidays but want to make sure we can get cell phone service and connection for all our devices.
What Could Be Better
Despite my love of tech gadgets, I’m not a big fan of complex installations. I’m a plug and go kind of guy. It took many searches of the user manual and considerable time to get the optimal location for the antennas and then the mounting work. Overall, this is my only negative comment.
In the Box
The HiBoost Travel kit comes with the cell phone signal booster, a full-roof mounting kit with an Omni-directional antenna, a vehicle interior mounting kit with a magnetic antenna, a 110v wall power supply, and a DC 12v vehicle power outlet supply. It also comes with a three-year warranty.
At first glance, you might think it’s expensive. Still, once you have a cell phone and device booster that works this well, including fast download speeds, no dropped calls or lost connections, and good voice capability, you will see what a significant and valuable return on investment it offers.
Most of us used to dread hitting the road in our RVs, knowing we might not have the cell service and connectivity that we enjoy at home. Now, I don’t have to worry and can work, chat, and game from the road. My family also loves it.
