Pickup currently unavailable at 2251 NW 41st Street

The APA05 Wi-Fi Signal Pen Booster is a highly efficient and compact unit designed to increase the performance and range of any 2.4 GHz wireless transmitter with an RP-SMA antenna connector. This includes Bluetooth, P2P, P2MP, 802.11n, 802.11b, 802.11b+, 802.11g, and 802.11b+g+n access points and wireless routers.

In our photos we show the device being connected to a WiFi router. The WiFi router is not included and is shown for demonstration only.

This is different from our ALFA USB WiFi boosters which also serve as WiFi receivers. This is not a receiver and cannot pickup WiFi signals on its own. It is an AC-powered pen booster designed to be connected to the RP-SMA antenna port of a transmitter (AP or router), and the antenna for the AP or router is then connected to it.

The APA05 extends signal range, and in certain conditions, can double the range of these wireless devices. This eliminates the use of an additional radio with its associated data line, power outlet, signal interference, and setup headaches. The APA05 is the fast and easy way to extend your signal range in any environment.

The max input of this device is 100mW, so it should not be used in conjunction with a WiFi router already transmitting over 100mW.

Bulk/High Value Order Returns

For non-defective returns over $500, a restocking fee may be deducted from the refund to cover bank or card processing fees.
