ST. GEORGE, Utah, July 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Promising better connections and fewer dropped calls, Wilson Electronics (www.WilsonElectronics.com), North America’s leading maker of cellular signal boosters, today announced the availability of the Sleek® 4G-V, the world’s first 4G signal booster designed to improve cell reception in vehicles like cars, trucks, and boats.
In areas with Verizon Wireless™ LTE service on the 700 MHz band, the Sleek 4G-V will ensure a strong LTE signal as well as conventional 3G and 2G signals. Benefits include fewer dropped connections and no-service “dead zones,” faster data transfer rates and improved battery life for wireless devices.
In areas not served by Verizon Wireless LTE, the cell phone signal booster will amplify any existing signal on 800 MHz and 1900 MHz bands (except Nextel/iDEN). This allows the user to enjoy a strong, reliable cellular signal even when no 4G service is available.
Although the Sleek 4G-V is designed for use in a vehicle, it can also be used indoors with the purchase of an optional accessory kit – where it also boosts 4G wireless hotspots like the Verizon JetPack™.
The 4G-V can also deliver more than 20 times the power of a typical cell phone alone, and weighs only three ounces (85 grams) and measures just 2.5 by 4.5 by 2.5 inches (6.4 x 11.4 6.4 cm). Simple, do-it-yourself installation is done in a matter of minutes.
