Whats the power supply required for Signal Booster

  • SureshHegde Wednesday, October 05, 2016 5:16 PM Reply

    Whats the power supply we should use for the Signal Booster (mentioned below) to work flawlessly? 

    SKU: 399843, 2G/3G/4G Cell Phone Signal Booster Amplifier w/ 0.6" LCD - Golden


    I have recieved the the power adapter with +5v output along with the Signal booster. But, the technical specification guide says that we have to use +12v power adpter with this signal booster. So, I am confused which one to use. I tried to use +5v power adapter (shipped along with product) and found that the signal booster was not working. With this I was not able to make calls using cell phone nor I coud recieve the calls. 


    Please help me. Looks like I wasted around 4000 Rs after buying the product (SKU: 399843) from DX.com

    Thanks!

    But is the +5v power adapter is wrong one? 

    Should I use +12v adapter for this product to work properly?

    that's what i was asking you!

    on the booster itself, does the the power socket say 12V?

    if not you can take a photo of manual specs where it mentions power requirements and post link here

    Summary:


    Specification sheet says 12V.

    Included power supply says 5V.

    Power socket on device says 5V.

    Using included 5V power supply to power device does not work.


    Time for DX to explain what's going on. Have you opened the ticket?

    DX has found a new way to deceive customers:
    Use reviews for different products that have not been bought
    by the person who wrote the review.
