12 Volt Cell Phone Booster

Anyone use any of these cell phone boosters? We have some signal at camp and can usually text and call, but it can fade in and out sometimes. Don't get data very often. Would like to get something that is 12 Volt so I can use with the solar setup.

they work fine for boosting weak signals. They are still more expensive than they should be in my Humble Opinion.. Make sure you get the antenna as high in the air as you can.

Well worth the money, especially in an emergency. WeBoost makes an excellent cell boost product. Been using it for couple of years now. They also sell a "home/office" that powers the unit using 120v if needed.

We have to drive to the top of the mountain to get any signal, and that's just fine with us!!!

We use a Wilson booster, boosts signal from an occasional 1 bar to steady 3 bars. has an optional house AC adapter and standard car plug. Can get phone calls, texts and emails now. I thing we found one on sale for $99.
