It’s ideal for use with Ubiquiti Networks AirMax products and MikroTik RouterBoards and being portable (it fits into your coat pocket) you don’t need to trail around a mains cable when you’re working out the best position for signal strength for your CPE installation 🙂

To recharge the unit plug into a mains or 12V car adapter.  The built -in Li-Ion 7. 2V 1500mAh battery provides 2.5 hours of continuous operation (efficiency 10 W/h, at 400mA load current ).

    Is this device will work with Mikrotik SXT 5 ac which needs DC 24v supply?

    And what’s the final price?

    Thank you.

    Will it work with power adapter connected as UPS when main power fails?

    How long will this power a Ubiquiti AirMAX AP for?

    Hi will the 48v versions power a Siklu?

  5. Patrick says:

    Can this be used to power an IP camera for setup?

    • Nick says:

      You would need to check the power requirements of the camera.
      Generally you would need to use the 48v 802.3af power bank for IP cameras, but some may need 24v passive.
