A soap/scrubby holder or caddy can be reimagined for use as a cellular device hotspot holster, and can even offer some opportunity for signal enhancement. A holder with suction cups also allows you to place your hotspot in a window for better reception. While not necessarily an antenna, sometimes all you need is to get your device a better line of site to a tower and away from any clutter that might be blocking signal.
The scrubby holder is an affordable, easy-to-utilize tool for your mobile internet arsenal.
- Dimensions: Varied

News, Videos, & Status
We purchased a variety of suction cup sponge holders, and found that the small size 'scrubby' holder from Amazon fits most mobile hotspots best. With some modifications to the bottom you could even route a charging or tethering cable.

Cellular antennas can be a vital part of your signal enhancing strategy to get a better signal, and thus better cellular data performance. They come in many shapes, sizes and varieties.
They can be used directly connected to your mobile hotspots or cellular embedded routers, or they might connect to your cellular booster. They come in omni-directional vs directional, single vs MIMO, and might support different frequency bands. They come in combination antennas with Wi-Fi and GPS.
But most importantly, is your installation options on your RV or boat.
So before choosing an antenna, be sure to understand all of these variables - and keep in mind that there likely isn't a single 'one size fits all' solution here. You may need to make compromises, or even have speciality antennas for challenging signal areas.
We recommend starting with our Guide to Selecting Antennas, and then moving on to our other guides addressing related topics:
