Samsung's LTE Mobile HotSpot Pro charges, too

A hot spot that's also a charger? That's the Samsung LTE Mobile HotSpot Pro's bag, baby.

Feeling puckish?

The flat, rectangular hot spot from T-Mobile is glossy black on the front and back, with a red stripe along the spines.

Unplug a bit

The hot spot's claim to fame is this USB port that plugs into the hot spot. If you need to charge your device last minute, you can plug either this USB end or the microSD charging end (found on the other side of this strap) into the device.

microSD storage

Peer into this 90-degree corner and you'll see a microSD storage slot. Slip in a card to share files with all connected devices. The hot spot supports up to 10.

Seeing red

The power button also lights up the screen, which dims quickly.

Screen thing

The small display on the front isn't touch sensitive, but you will be able to get a basic readout of the hot spot's vitals.
