Solar-powered MiFi: Travel Safe and Eco-friendly

  It has been a while since we last published a blog entry. We’re going to deliver more articles of high quality in the future. Please email us if there’s a particular topic you want us to discuss. This time, we’d like to introduce an eco-friendly Wi-Fi solution for frequent travelers and regular road Wi-Fi users: Using a solar panel to power our GL-MiFi. Why use a Solar Panel? While GL-MiFi already has an internal battery (5,000mAh), it’s great to have an alternative power source just in case it runs out of juice, better yet, it’s completely free and you can power your router anywhere under the sunlight.

  Question: How many wireless devices can one GL mini router handle? Answer: That depends on the encryption method which the mini router is using. We did a test and used PSK2 as encryption method and connected totally 39 devices (this is all we have) to the router without problem.
