weBoost Drive 3G-Flex Review

admin   November 2, 2015   Comments Off on weBoost Drive 3G-Flex Review

With a lot of mobile phone signal boosters out there, which one should you choose? How about a signal booster that you can use not only on your car, but also inside your home as well?

There is actually a signal booster than can do both of those, and that is the weBoost Drive 3G-Flex. This mobile phone signal booster can be attached at the roof of your car or inside your house.

In fact, this is one of the only mobile phone signal boosters that can do that, which is why it has become quite popular. But, it is not as popular as other signal boosters, and here’s why: no 4G or LTE support.

But, let’s focus more on its positives. The weBoost Drive 3G-Flex is a mobile phone signal booster that can amplify both 3G and 2G frequencies. This means that you are able to make calls with clarity, even if the signal strength in the area is weak.

The weBoost Drive 3G-Flex comes with a car charger for your car and an AC wall charger if you want to use it inside your home. It also comes with a magnetic mount which you can use to mount the signal booster on the roof your car. And, it also has a window mount so that you can attach it to your home without any hassles.

The weBoost Drive 3G-Flex also has a powerful enough amplifier which has a gain of 45 dB, just 5 points shy of the industry’s maximum. It also has only a 2.5dBi forward gain, which is quite slower from the best mobile phone signal boosters out there.

The only downside to this signal booster is the lack of the aforementioned 4G and LTE support. Most service providers offer this medium because of its high speed data transfers. It is a shame that this signal doesn’t support any of them.

Still, it gives 3G and 2G signals a considerable boost whenever you need it.

When you purchase the weBoost Drive 3G-Flex, you will be receiving the following items:

Drive 3G-Flex Dual-Band Amplifier

  • 4″ Mini Magnetic Mount Antenna with SMA-Male Connector
  • DC Power Supply
  • AC Power Supply
  • 901128 – Window Mount with Radial for Magnet Antennas
  • 859946 – 13″ Mobile Professional Zippered Carry Pouch

The installation of this signal booster is quite easy. If you want to install this on your car, just mount the amplifier on the roof of your car. Place the included coaxial cable somewhere safe (under the door seal). Plug the power the car charger and put the power cable to the amplifier and the coaxial cable into the antenna slot on the amplifier, and you’re good to go.

To install the weBoost Drive 3G-Flex on your home or small office, attach the mount somewhere you can get even the faintest of signals (preferably on the window).

All in all, the weBoost Drive 3G-Flex is good if you want to boost 3G and 2G frequencies.
