WeBoost, formerly known as Wilson Electronics, creates the best mobile phone signal boosters out in the market today. The thing about their signal boosters is that they are very easy to install, and thus, they get the job done.
Apart from easy installation, their mobile phone signal boosters also boosts a lot of frequencies; from the normal 2G for better call clarity up to the 4G and LTE signals that promises blazing fast internet speeds.
Today, we’re going to take a look at the weBoost Drive 4G-S. This is quite different from their other offerings because this is a type of “cradle” signal booster. What does it mean? This means that this signal booster will improve the signal reception of your mobile phone when it is put in its “cradle”.
That being said, you can only enjoy amplified signals when your phone is put on the cradle. This means that if you want to make a call for example, you can only talk via the speaker phone function or through a Bluetooth wireless headset.
Another major problem with the weBoost Drive 4G is that it has one of the weakest amplifiers among other signal boosters. It only has a 23 dB amplifier, which is a farcry from the industry’s standard of 50 dB.
Still, the weBoost Drive 4G-S is one of the most affordable signal boosters around, and that may appeal to some people.
If you buy the weBoost Drive 4G-S, you will get these items:
- weBoost Drive 4G-S Cradle with built-in Amplifier
- weBoost 4 in. Magnet-Mount External Antenna
- Cigarette lighter power adapter and cable
- Vehicle dash adhesive mounting bracket
- Instruction Manual with Installation Directions
So, how do you install this signal booster to your car? It is very to install the signal booster. Simply attach the included Magnetic external antenna on the roof of your car and then attach the coaxial cable to the amplifier. Next, plug in the power supply to the cigarette lighter port, attach the power cable to the amplifier, then you’re good to go!
There are also a good amount of review for this product.
Samson said, “This is the only booster that boosts 4G signals on all major carrier networks & that also boosts 2g and 3g signal’s for under $1000. I work in the oilfield as an mwd field engineer outside Douglas Wyoming & without this booster all I can pick up is 3g signal which gives me about 1.2 mbps down and 600 kbps up. Don’t trust what any of the negative reviewer’s say on here, more than likely they are just inexperienced with signal boosters. Once I hooked this up and pointed the antenna in the right direction I was able to pick up a 4g signal and went from 1.2mbps to 22 mbps down.”
Craig also quipped, “I’m constantly driving in areas with dead zones and bad cell service. This booster basically eliminated that problem for me. If you’re in a similar situation and are thinking about one, I’d highly recommend it.”
Although, this product does not have a strong amplifier as other signal boosters, but the affordable price of $199 for this cradle-type signal booster is what is appealing to people. Also, it can boost 4G signals, so that is a good plus too!
