Review: HiBoost Travel 4G LTE Kit by Huaptec (Mobile Cellular Booster)

The HiBoost Travel 4G (front) is absolutely huge compared to the other boosters we've been testing. Left to right across the back: weBoost 4G-X, Smoothtalker X6, and Maximum Signal Max-Amp.

HiBoost USA (a division of Asian manufacturer Huaptec) brought the Travel 4G LTE Booster to market in late 2016.

Though the brand may not be widely recognizable, the HiBoost is more affordable than other similarly specced boosters, and thus popped up on our radar as potentially interesting.

We included the HiBoost in our early 2017 round of hands-on booster testing.

Review & Testing Status

Huaptec USA sent us an evaluation unit of the Travel 4G LTE booster, which we compared head-to-head against its closet competitors in early 2017- including the weBoost Drive 4G-XMax-Amp Mobile, and Smoothtalker.
