The TripMate Elite is a versatile, all-in-one wireless travel router that solves multiple problems with just one device. This dynamic little box allows you to get online in a pinch while also functioning as a charger and a portable file sharing device.


The router connects to your devices through a USB port giving you an instant hotspot to connect to the Web. If you run out of juice on your tablet with no outlet in sight, no problem. The TripMate Elite also doubles as an external battery. The 6000mAh battery can be used to charge your mobile phone three times over before running out of power. It also powers its own features, giving you 17 hours of router operation and 12 hours of file transferring.


The TripMate Elite also works as a personal Cloud device. Plug a flash drive or other file-storing device into the USB port and you’re instantly able to access it through any of your mobile devices in a secure wireless network.


The router connects to the HooToo TripMate App, which gives you full access to any USB storage plugged into the Elite. You’re able to remotely view and download images or video and change your network setting through the app.


There isn’t much this thing won’t do. You can find one on Amazon for just $40.
