HiBoost USA (a division of Asian manufacturer Huaptec) released a new mobile 4G/LTE cellular booster in November 2019 which is replacing the venerable Travel 4G LTE Booster that was originally released in late 2016.
The main new feature of the Travel 4G 2.0 is a Wi-Fi and BlueTooth module to allow monitoring via a mobile app called Signal Supervisor. The app gives signal condition readings in real-time, demonstrating that the booster is performing properly. A signal meter tool on the HiBoost Signal Supervisor app will help users find the best position for the outdoor antenna. You can also chat with the HiBoost technical support directly from the Signal Supervisor app for remote troubleshooting.

Review & Testing Status
At present time, we do not intend to obtain a review unit as we just wrapped up extensive booster testing and it doesn't seem this new release offers any increase in performance over the HiBoost Travel 4G LTE Kit we have already reviewed.
Because we feel the technical specifications are similar enough, we are 'Featuring' this booster based on our review of the first version. It was a solid performer, but only with their RV OTR Antenna.
