HooToo TripMate Wireless Portable Router {Review}

I received a HooToo TripMate Wireless Portable Router to facilitate this review.

The HooToo Wireless N150 Portable Router has a lot of very useful features all contained in one very small package. The TripMate can charge your devices, be used as Wi-Fi mini router, and USB storage media sharing. Are you impressed yet?  As someone who travels a lot, the HooToo TripMate HT-TM01 has proved to be a very useful little gadget. When I travel for business, I seem to pack just as much tech as I do clothing. This is only amplified when traveling with my family full of teens and young adults, all with their own tablets and laptops. It’s great to have one device, small enough to fit into your pocket, that can do so much. It’s a 3 in 1 travel friendly wireless sharing solution.

To be more specific, it’s a N150 mini broadband router and bridge, is Wi-Fi hotspot capable (anywhere there is Wi-Fi available you can easily bridge into your own hotspot), 5200mAh battery pack (2-3 full charges w/iPhone), and a wireless USB storage/sharing device. Inside the box you will find the device and a microUSB charging cable. The TripMate has so many different uses that I really had to take a few minutes to read the instruction manual to figure it out. But once I did my homework, I realized how very useful this little device would be.

Setting the HooToo TripMate Wirless N Portable Travel Router to bridge mode was easy. Anywhere there is Wi-Fi available you can easily bridge into your own hotspot. It allows you to set up a wireless broadcast (hotspot) with a secure name and password. This gives the wireless protection you need while traveling or sitting in a coffee shop. It will also provide internet access to your guests, or in my case a family of teenagers.

The 5200mAh batter pack proves to be very useful, providing multiple charges for a smartphone or one charge for a tablet. There is a battery light indicator that will always tell you how much juice is left in your TripMate, so you’ll know when to charge it up.

Use the TripMate for easy file sharing between your USB storage and IOS/Android devices. Just download the TripMate app, plug in a USB flash drive, and share your photos, music, and video files. This would be very handy if you have files to share with multiple people. It also works with portable hard drives and memory cards plugged into a Flash card disk reader.

All in all, I am very happy with the TripMate. It can be a secure wireless router, a portable USB storage sharing device, and a backup battery. All in one neat little package. If you spend a lot of time using public Wi-Fi or traveling, I highly recommend the HooToo TripMate Wireless Portable Router. With Christmas just a couple of weeks away, this is a great gift idea and it’s currently available to purchase from Amazon for $49.99.

    This router would be awesome just as you said, us parents pack more devices than clothing. It being 3-1 is awesome. I have a teen, that is tech savy. This would definitely benefit lots of families. Thank you!

    This really does seem like it would be very useful. The expensive, “in place” router I have now can barely make it from the living room to my bedroom – and it’s all one floor in an apartment. Gee!

  20. Stacie Connerty says:

    I have always wanted to buy one of these. I cannot stand to not have an internet connection at times. This would be so useful since I travel so much.

  21. What a cool thing to have when traveling. I have a hot spot on my phone, but too many things connect doesn’t work well. This may be the answer to making everyone happy.

  22. I bet that is so convenient. I would love to have one of those. :)

  23. What a great little device. Looks like it does it’s job well.

    never knew they made these! very cool little thing

  33. Now this is something that would totally come in handy!!

  34. ooooh I need this. I always end up with a giant bag of tech stuff when we travel. Being able to minimize things would be fantastic.

  35. Wow, this is only $50? I’m in the market for something I can use to tap into public WiFi safely, and the fact that this is a battery for devices AND storage is pretty incredible. Thanks for the intro!

  36. Now THIS is an item I need!!!! I think having this to use while traveling would be great! Thanks!!

  37. How cute and mini! Super convenient too! My techy brother in law would love this!

  38. What a handy little device. I can’t believe it’s only $50 and that is safe with the WiFi.

  39. Now this looks like something that could come in mighty handy!

  40. I’d like it for the safety when I’m at the library or a cafe using their WiFi.

  41. So can you use others wifi, but it would have its own wifi?

  42. I’d love to buy this for my son in law. He travels a lot for business and is always looking for a free WiFi spot, but security is a major issue for him.

  43. This sounds like a dream come true device for always on the go techies. I could definitely use one!

  44. I really wish I knew what you just wrote about. For some reason this electronic stuff confuses the heck out of me. I’m wondering when you say wireless hot spot, does that mean if I go somewhere they do not have wi-fi, can I use this to make my device usable?

    • I know what you mean, Wendy. It’s all so confusing. It does not act as a hotspot, if there is no w–fi available. But if you are somewhere where there is wi-fi available, you can use this device as a bridge to your own hotspot. I hope that helped to clear things up a bit.

  45. what a cool stocking stuffer for the gadget lover! i want one!

  46. Rebecca Parsons says:

    This is great for a traveler like my brother. He is always talking about getting one of these.
