First Look: Verizon Jetpack 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot MiFi 4620L

3:16 /

The Verizon Jetpack 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot MiFi 4620L makes one of the best Internet access companion, especially when you're not traveling alone.

Hi, guys. It's Dongo here and I have another mobile router to show you. The Verizon Jetpack MiFi 4620L. Now before we go, just chill out, because this one is actually very different. It's the first one every seen that comes with a second batter. Meaning that it will give you another 9 or 10 hours. Combine the two, we have about almost 2 days worth of work on just the batter. As the mobile router, the MiFi here allows you to access internet on the go, which means you can work wherever you are, at home, at a cafe, in the library, or in my case, in my car and in fact, I did have a great time driving around the entire Bay Area, testing the device. I had a great time for 2 reason. Number one, I was able to access the internet at a very high 4G speed, virtually everywhere in the bay area and secondly, it was sunny outside and it was by the ocean. I think to get my co-worker being locked in here. If you don't believe me, you could ask any of my three ladies friend who are with me out of time, but don't tell my boss. On top, it has a tiny screen that shows a lot of information. The battery gauge, the connected clients, the signal strength for the internet and so on. You can also use the navigation button to access even more information. On top here, there's a power button. You can press once to turn on or wake it up or press and hold for a few second to turn the device off. That here, there is a micro USB port for charging and connecting the router to the computer. And over here, there's a (purfon?) extended antenna. On the bottom here, you can find the battery... Battery cover, on which you can see the depot network information. This is what you need to get up and running with the router. There are two covers to accommodate two batteries. One of them is thicker than the other, as you can see here. Underneath the battery, you can find the SIM card slot. In the US, the router works with Verizon's 4G and 3G Network but when you travel it nationally, you can also swap out these cards to make the router work with the local service. Despite the small size, this router comes with many feature. One of which is the ability to share the GPS over WiFi. Meaning, that a WiFi client can use the router's GPS signal for it's own positioning services. Despite the 2 batteries, the MiFi actually not too expensive, costing just around $50 if you are willing to sign up for a 2-year contract. If you're not, it's gonna cost $260. The only downside of the device is approximately, it comes with two pretty expensive data service, that costs 50 and $80 per month for a 5 Gigabyte and 10 Gigabyte or better cap. After that, you could pay another $10 for each additional Gigabyte. Once again, my name is Dongo and this has been the first look at the Verizon Jetpack MiFi 4620L Mobile Hot Spot Router.
