Description Technical Specs
 
The RadioLabs CaptiFi is the highest scoring WiFi antenna from our recent Product Testing Review. When compared to the built-in WiFi of our Sony Vaio, the CaptiFi performed at about 4 - 8x the throughput, and this was without even being mounted in a high position. In fact, the makers claim a range of 30x that available with most laptop WiFi cards. If you are looking for the best WiFi booster, with the most power and longest range, then the CaptiFi is for you. It's smaller size and omni-directional antenna make it extremely versatile and practical - we suggest mounting it either on the top of your rear ladder, or directly on the roof with an adjustable marine mount. The long 15 foot USB cable can either permenantly installed through the roof, or more easily, passed through a rear window avoiding drilling holes in your RV or trailer!

The CaptiFi combines both the receiver (the WiFi booster) and the antenna built into a sturdy weatherproof assembly with sealed cable connections and a heavy duty anodized aluminum electronic housing - the CaptiFi will provide long range wireless connectivity for years to come.

Reviewer: Vernon R Bruce from Livingston, TX United States  
So far, works just as described! We're at an RV park where the signal at our rig was just 2 bars, but with this antenna it is boosted to max 5 bars! Thanks.
