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 ).

  1. Hello,

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

    And what’s the final price?

    Thank you.


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

  3. How long will this power a Ubiquiti AirMAX AP for?

  4. Hi will the 48v versions power a Siklu?

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

    • 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.

  6. Old post now, but I discovered for those who need these to run longer out in the field without a charge source then there is room to fit two more 18650’s inside.

  7. Hi, if have the 48v version, will it also power 24v device’s?

  8. Would the 48v product power 2x 24v in the following configuration concurrently – or would the 24v handle it? Wondering if the 48v can determine the output voltage of the receiving end….

    Otherwise for surveys you would get power to the Mikrotik no problem, but the output from the powerbank LAN port would need to go into a laptop with an RJ45 connection

  9. To confirm does this have a 48v dc output?

      It outputs 24V/48V via PoE (depending on the model). The DC barrel port is only for charging the powerbank, not for output.
