Too good to be true? Perhaps. However, if you travel, then the Satechi Smart Travel Router Travel Adapter ($45) is a pocket-size router, multinational power adapter and has a USB port for charging — the solution to your road warrior blues? Read on…
• Worldwide compatibility
— Fits electrical outlets in over 150 countries, including US, CA, MX, UK, EU, AU, NZ, HK, and China
• Charge two devices simultaneously
— Use the AC power port and the USB port to charge two devices at once.
• Compact and Portable
— All prongs retract to easily transport the Smart Travel Router in a purse, laptop bag, briefcase, carry-on bag, or suitcase.
• Four Networking Modes (10/100Mbps, 802.11b/g/n)
— Router: Functions as a typical router, connecting to the internet provided by your ISP and broadcasting a wireless signal, enabling you to create your own network.
— Repeater: Connect to your existing network and amplify it. This enables you to extend the range of your wireless network – invaluable if you have a weak connection in a room far away from your router.
— Access Point: Create a wireless connection from a wired source. If only an Ethernet port or Ethernet cable is available, the router can connect to the wired connection and broadcast a wireless network that all your devices can connect to.
— Client: Connect to a device such as a Smart TV or video game console via an Ethernet cable. The Smart Travel Router can then be used as a wireless adapter, enabling the connected device to connect to the internet wirelessly.
At just $45, the Satechi Smart Travel Router/Travel Adapter (Amazon) is worth a look — it’s a lot of functional in a very small package.
