Pros: This was the type of thing I'd been looking for to supplement my phone's hot spot while on the go for extended periods of time.
Cons: The only problem was that both here on newegg AND, even worse, on FreedomPop's website, they never really delve into explaining that what they mean by 4G is WiMax and WiMax only--which is only available in select major cities.
Other Thoughts: Being called a 4G device is extremely deceptive and moreover, their coverage map defaults to include normal 4G service (of which I have great service in my area, but NOT WiMax service). I contacted the company and got nowhere. The only place I could even see information which showed that this was a WiMax only device was by accessing the routers set up IP while I had it in my hand.
Needless to say, I was very unsatisfied with this lack of transparency and the idea that, "finally an ISP that might actually care," quickly faded away. So, yea, check for WiMax coverage in your area, there probably isn't any, and save yourself the trouble of buying the same paperweight I did.

Pros: The phone cradle itself is quite satisfying. It glides open with the push of a button and ratchets tightly (and satisfyingly) making a snug connection with it's soft rubber-ish lining. It even has a couple of feet that can fold out to add more support to the bottom of the phone if needed. The cradle snaps off of the base too for quick mobility as well.
Cons: The stand seems to be the limiting factor in this rig. I've tried it in a few different cars and have had varying results with it. It comes with a fair amount of steadying features (adjustable plug thickness to keep it tight in the AC jack is a nice addition), but the range of motion on the head and small length of the bendable arm limit usable positions greatly.
Other Thoughts: I'd say this is best used in a car where the cigarette AC jack is clear from the shifter or any other useful controls in the car. When choosing between using my AC plug for this rig or my radar detector, the radar wins every time because of how limiting this rig can be. But that ratcheting cradle is oh so satisfying.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Light-weight for easy travel, easy to use and extremely handy.
Cons: No wall adapter (as listed, but is always nice to have).
Very low quality Micro USB cord included.
Other Thoughts: Very easy to use, but here are some things to keep in mind:
Indicator lights are fairly bright, but usually blocked by phone when charging. DON'T use the included cord directly into anything other than this pad, there's something wonky about it. Slight high pitched electrical buzzing when plugged in, but is usually caused by dirty power. I didn't think a smooth surface was going to be an issue with my HTC DNA having a rubberized back, but I guess I would have preferred a little more slip resistance.
I bought this pad because my usb port on my phone was becoming unreliable and I'm very impressed with the Qi charging capabilities built into a lot of phones now. Solution worked perfectly for me.
