5 out of 5 eggsElite functionality at home and abroad

Pros: All functions work great
- Router
- Bridge
- Media Server
- Battery charger
- Powered by 120-240
Works and looks great!

Cons: - bridge takes a little set up - a touch, all the rest are plug and play

Other Thoughts: I confess: I am a fan of HooToo and their TripMate products. What can I say: To know them is to love them!

Here I am in the midst of a 5 week excursion from our Oregon home to Freiburg Germany, this time ready to sing my praises of their elite, top-of-the-line product, the TripMate Elite.

Hirzberg Camping, the fine campground where my wife and I are currently ensconced, is a little peace of heaven close to town and perched on the edge of the wonderfully pristine Black Forest. I'm afraid the flat we've rented on the campground truly puts the lie to any claim I might assert to being an actual camper. After all, we have wired Internet, a TV and running water. Still, nature walks, hikes, bicycle rides and grilled delights aside, no trip is complete for me without access to our vast library of music and movies. Enter the Elite. Let me detail all of the wonderful things the Elite brings to the international, quasi-rustic travel table:

Power. It works with both 120 and 240 volt power sources. We just slipped a German adapter on the built in retractable plug, inserted it into a socket in our living room and Voila - the Elite is ready for action.

Instant Wireless Hotspot. We inserted the Ethernet cable emerging out of our living room wall into the Ethernet port on the Elite to transform our wired access, usable by one device in the living room, to wireless access throughout the flat.

Media Server. I connected an external USB powered hard drive chock full of music and movies to the Elite. Our music and movie libraries were instantly available to enjoy by up to 5 simultaneous users on a variety (PC, Mac, Android or iOS) of devices.

Battery-powered, Media to Go. When we go for long drives through the Black Forest, the battery powered Elite comes with. We stick a thumb drive stuffed with the cream of our music library into the Elite USB port, so that we can enjoy Deuter, Beethoven and the Beatles for hours. Note: regrettably this works as well with Rap and Heavy Metal. Just kidding!

Internet Bridge. When we travel into the Black Forest for an overnight stay at a favorite Chalet providing wireless, we use the Elite to strengthen the Wifi signal, enabling it to reach a bedroom that otherwise would be without.

Form factor. The Elite is both a functional powerhouse and a thing of beauty, a highly portable one at that. This slick, shiny little gem easily slides into shirt or pants pockets.

For added spice, and familiar notes on journeys to unfamiliar places, take the aptly named TripMate Elite along with you. You'll be glad you did.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Product

Pros: The flip-out prongs make charging the TripMate more convenient (no cord) and MUCH faster than a 2.1A USB charger.

The router configuration is relatively simple

Cons: Wish the battery was larger.

Other Thoughts: This is JUST what you need to use a Chromecast in a hotel with peer networking disabled (or a host of other issues preventing you from using Chromecast on hotel WiFi)

5 out of 5 eggsThis is great for Travelers

Pros: This is a great product if you travel often and want a secure way to connect your devices. I used this on vacation, and the resort I was at only allowed us 2 devices free, and the rest would be $10 for the stay. I used these to connect to the wifi, logged in through the web interface, and was able to create a separate wifi network for all 10 of our devices to share without the extra charge. Quite sad that hotels and resorts are charging for multiple wifi connections.

I also used this during a business trip at a hotel without wifi. I was able to connect my tablet and laptop since they both had wifi. on this same trip, my car charger broke so I had the ability to charge while I was driving with the added backup battery.

Cons: I wish It had a keep alive signal for multiple days instead of having to log in to refresh every day or 2

Other Thoughts: Overall, this is a truly great product.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Little All-In-One Device

Pros: This is a great little Wireless N router for on-the-go. It's so small that it can be easily carried around in the included mesh case and it can also fit in your pocket. This device has the ability to act as a wireless router, bridge or access point, and has apps to access it via DLNA, or the iOS/Android operating systems. I like that it has a plug adapter that simply flips out from the unit. It also can act as a 6000 mAh capacity portable power bank to charge cell phones and other devices

Cons: It would be nice to include a 10 Ft Ethernet cable in the box. Also, some of the apps for mobile devices could be streamlined and have better GUIs, but that's being picky.

Other Thoughts: Well worth the price I paid. It replaces several devices in one small package.

5 out of 5 eggsHooToo made the best travel router even better!!!

Pros: I had HT-TM01 which works flawlessly, and I thought is is the best. Now with HT-TM04, HooToo added the AC wallplug makes it even more convenient, plus second USB charging port provides 2.0A makes it even sweeter. Unit works w/o any issues just like the older brother (which I still have). Oh, now it comes with the fabric carrying case which keeps its casing nice and shinning, I wish the HT-TM01 came with one too.

Cons: None, really. Or maybe it should include the Ethernet cable, something designed for travel as well. Is that too much to ask for?

5 out of 5 eggsJust the ticket

Pros: This single device replaces a number of other devices for me: a travel battery with enough guts to charge a tablet at 2A while simultaneously charging a phone at 1A, a wired charger with the same dual charging capability, a wireless access point, and - the icing on the cake - a wireless bridge. It's that icing that drew me to the device - too many times I've been at a hotel where the purchased internet limits the number of connected devices. But it's great to be able to also leave behind my distinct battery pack and wired chargers. All I need now is this and a pair of USB cables.

Cons: None yet evident.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome battery / gadget

Pros: Very powerful battery. Convenient when not wanting to constantly ask for wifi passwords.

Cons: wifi goes down if on for too long hopefully driver update fixes this. The charging cable cannot be moved otherwise it seems to not charge until realigned.

3 out of 5 eggsTripMate

Pros: great battery
Can be charging my phone during bridge mode

Cons: ipad app lags, does not play media
no download for windows

Other Thoughts: This is a review for the Hootoo Mate Elite, that I was given to review.
First thought, since I love portable electronics, this was going to be on of the most amazing devices created.

The first thing I did was connect it to view some files on a usb drive. It took a vew tries since the device either was not working, or I was entering the password 11111111 wrong. ( In my opinion, is really annoying)

While I use the app for the Ipad 4th gen, I clicked play for the first song on my usb drive, but it would not play, but would go down the list of all my songs, but not play. The Hootoo device is 6 inches away on my lap, and It would lag going down the list of files I had. Syncing in took around 10 seconds, even with my 15 mbps speed down and 5 mbps up.
The media feature was a fail in my opinion for the ipad, not playing any picture, mp4, and mp3s, as well as lagging and crashing.
Compared to the Toshiba Canvio Wireless Adapter, the Hootoo Tripmate falls behind in comparison
I was mainly needing this device to be able to view media on my ipad, since it can not expand data, but it falls short.
The Hootoo program for the PC was not found in the hootoo.com/download

Moving forward to the android app for the Samsung s3, I decided to plug in my phone on the other open port to see if the device could charge while outputting media from my s3, and it worked great! I played a variety of media, the same compared to the ipad, and they played this time on the andoid, the files took a slight bit longer to load compared to the Toshiba Canvio adapter. One thing they could fix for the TripMate is to add a location where I can pause, without going back to the song.

Testing the bridge
The speedtest went from my normal ping of 15 to 20, and the bridge made the internet go to 12, from 15.(location- router was between a wall, and the hootoo was next to my computer.
By moving the device, between 3 walls, and ~70 feet away, it suffered greatly, at 48-250 ping, ,50mbps-2mbps down and .8mpbs up.
random test- my room temperature is around 75 to 77, and using a termo gun, the highest temp is 94*F 34.5*C
After over an hour of testing, the indicator was still 4/4.
I was mainly needing this device to be able to view
The Hootoo TripMate Elite has some minor problems to repair, but is a feature rich device that is the jack of all trades compared to the Toshiba Canvio adapter. One thing I would love to see, is being to connect to both the internet as well as the TripMate.

2 out of 5 eggsNot for travel

Pros: Works, easy to set up, could replace a bunch of devices in your travel kit.

Cons: The security on this thing is horrifying. Think of any security feature on any cheap wifi router you've used: this thing doesn't have it. Firewall? No. UPnP config? No. Port forwarding? No. DMZ host? Public/private sides? Disable unneeded services? No. No. No. It even runs a telnet service you can't turn off and doesn't require a login to change some settings in the Web UI.

Other Thoughts: Too insecure for use on an untrusted network. Great potential but not quite cooked yet.

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost perfect network swiss-army-knife

Pros: - Battery
- 2 charging ports
- Share files by USB port on router easily.
- Has DLNA / SAMBA / Android/iPhone APP
- Case
- Easy to use interface (GUI) for configuring
- Plug built-in

Cons: Advertised as having 'bridging' but this is only wireless to wireless, you can not connect a device to the lan port and provide it network access through this device. At least with the current firmware on it at the time of writing.

This item boasts as being 'elite' but doesn't even have the same features available to other $20 nano router products (without the battery of course which is about $15-$20 value give or take).

Other Thoughts: Awesome device! Looks good, love the fact it can provide access to USB storage, DLNA and SAMBA access possibilities and the case is a classy touch. I like the fact it will run directly from battery without the need to be plugged in for a good period of time (assuming your not charging your phone or tablet with it at the same time). Multiple USB ports in case you want to charge and use use storage at the same time.

While there is a lot to love about this device, there are also some shortcomings that it needs to overcome to truly deserve to be called 'Elite'. Mainly that it fails to offer one feature which I feel would fulfill this as the perfect wireless swiss-army-knife solution, and that is wired to wireless network bridging. While some of the other brands 'nano' products do not come with the awesome battery this things comes with, they do have this feature available to them stock. For this I deduct 1 star from its rating.
