Thedroidguy Goes On The Road Again With The Wilson Electronics Sleek

If you travel a decent amount in the car or you live in a somewhat desolate area we highly recommend the Wilson Electronics Sleek.  For a really good review about it’s function and the way it works click here.

We’re taking a long windy trip on i40 and have found that the Wilson Electronics Sleek rarely fails. As Wilson’s Jon Bacon has warned us before though, it can’t produce signal where there is none.  At this particular stretch of i40 we received 0-1 bars of Verizon Wireless 3G and were able to get it to 4 or 5 bars in the Wilson Electronics Sleek cradle.

The Sleek plugs into your cars cigarette lighter outlet and has an antenna that mounts on the roof of your vehicle with one of those really heavy duty magnets. The results are a dramatic improvement where signal is low.

  1. Forgot to say, if ur running a android fone, install opensignal and locate the the tower with the best Signal, rotate the coffe can to gather from that direction.

    This allowed me to get the signal.

  2. Ya i picked up a wilson amp to boost my u600 aircard, i tried antennas, home made coffe can signal boosters.

    i used the coffe can on the gathering antenna hanging off the wilson then pipped the signal directly into the aircard thats plugged into a cradle point.

    I went from 1 bar to 5 ars at 100% signal. That blew me away, my ping times dropped by 80% and my throughput skyrocketed, now i can play utube vids and it never buffers.

    Fantastic. Performance. Its like im hardwired to the cell tower.
