HooToo TripMate Elite HT-TM06

Ok, so my review is on the HooToo TripMate Elite HT-TM06. And when they say Elite, they mean it. I mean, this travel router is capable of so much! Read on to find out what I liked about this device.


Firstly, this device can act like a portable wireless router. I have been to many hotels where the WiFi was lacking in such that the speeds were comparable to dial-up internet (remember that?). This little guy gives me the ability to plug into the wired Ethernet connection in my room and make the connection wireless, thus enabling me to use my phone and tablets with the higher speeds.

Secondly, I use the TripMate in my home as a Wireless Network Bridge. What this means is, I can extend a current Wireless Network that I have in my home to areas that it could not reach. Meaning that I now have better wireless coverage upstairs while my main router is downstairs.

The third feature I really like on this is that I can use it to effectively create a personal cloud. I can now plug in my portable hard drive, camera, etc. and I can stream files wirelessly on my phone and laptop.

This model of the TripMate also has a built in 6000 mAh battery and can also act as a wall charger for my devices.

One thing I love about this router is how easy it is to set up. To connect my phone to it I plug it into the wall and press the power button for a few seconds until the wireless light shines. Then from my phone or laptops browser I enter the devices IP address in the search box: “10.10.10.254”.
From there I get a full graphic menu to set up the device. There is also a nicely designed App for iOS and Android to access it.

All in all, I really think this router, which was sent to me in exchange for an honest review, has great features.
