About the weBoost Drive Sleek (470135)
The Sleek product line has been one of weBoost's most popular. But this newest incarnation has been redesigned from the ground-up to optimize performance. In particular, the new cradle stretches vertically to ensure that the antennas anywhere in a modern smartphone receive amplified signal, resulting in considerably better performance than previous versions.
We generally love cradle-format boosters. By ensuring a tight coupling between the booster and your phone's antenna, weBoost's cradle design allows for excellent performance. While the Drive Sleek (470135) is limited to 23 dB gain, the performance is typically much better than wireless in-vehicle boosters from other manufacturers. weBoost holds a patent on cradle-type cell phone signal boosters, and as a result, they are the only manufacturer that offers these devices.
The weBoost Drive Sleek boosts all modern cellular technologies, including 2G, 3G data, and 4G LTE data. The Drive Sleek will boost signal no matter which cellular carrier you use in the United States and Canada.
For this new version of the Drive Sleek, weBoost have also added a new fast-charging USB port to the 12V cigarette lighter adapter. In addition to powering the cradle, this new adapter allows fast-charging of Android and Apple devices.
Please note that due to it's cradle format, this booster will only improve coverage for a single phone. For multiple users, consider wireless alternatives such as the weBoost Drive 4G-M. While performance typically isn't as good with wireless units, they make it possible to amplify signal for multiple devices simultaneously.
The weBoost Drive Sleek is the upgraded replacement for the former Wilson Drive 4G-S (470107) and Wilson Sleek 4G (460107).
