The N-Range 2.0 is very similar to the previous N-Range model, the only difference is that the cradle in the 2.0 model has an upgraded cradle.
This cradle style cellular signal booster is specially designed to be used in vehicles, using technology that eliminates the need for antennas and cables outside of the vehicle.
The inside antenna is a magnetic phone mount antenna which attaches to an air vent. An adhesive metal plate attaches to the device to give a secure magnetic hold.
The installation process is simple and quick, allowing for the N-Range to easily transfer between vehicles.
The booster unit is integrated into the outside roof antenna, boosting the signal directly, with no signal loss from the cable run inside.
With only a 23dB gain and the indoor cradle antenna being on a 15' cable, this system it is limited in some ways - but is definitely an interesting design.

Because of a technology called MIMO (multiple in multiple out) that is essential to LTE and 5G data, often times the internal antennas on a smartphone or hotspot don't benefit from an amplified signal. Boosters also only cover a handful of the frequency bands the carries use for data.
But a booster can play a role in a mobile internet arsenal - as they excel during times when you are really far from a tower, or where upload speeds are important (such as video broadcasting).
