Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Very handy and battery operated AP that uses your USB 3G dongle. My huawei E180 was not listed but worked with a generic profile right away. Just enter APN and you are up and running.
Cons:
Battery lify is rather short, why did the choose to use a small capacity battery. It is however usefull that the battery is a standard one that is easily obtainable. battery life is just over 1,5 hours with the included battery and over 2 hours with a Pisen brand battery.
You need to get a USB for use with the included cable or a Mini USB charger as a charger is not included.
Other:
The devices can connect to the internet during charging. the only flaw is that it reboots when removing the charging power. when connecting the charging power nothing happens.
Issues reported in other reviews may be due to earlier firmware (mine is 2.3)
Bottomline:
Recommendable
