Huawei and Sierra Wireless are two top LTE vendors all over the world, and they are always competing with each other for LTE share. Perhaps due the protect from US government, Huawei cannot enter US market, on the contrary, Sierra Wireless is the local US vendor, which supply telecom products mainly to North American and South American. Consequently, Huawei cooperates with many operators in Europe and Asia, but it cannot open the US gate. It’s political matter, not our topic today.

Two Recommended HUAWEI Mobile Power Bank

Most of people know that HUAWEI is a professional wireless gadgets supplier, but few people know that HUAWEI also produce mobile power bank. You may be curious that what power bank that HUAWEI could supply. Of course, as the world’s top telecom equipments supplier, HUAWEI would not supply the common kinds of colorful power bank in the market.  

 

Considering the great volume of gadgets that are already at the users’ hands, HUAWEI wants to find a resolution for its mobile terminals about continuous power supply. So it’s necessary to recommend HUAWEI new power bank so that users could get better experience and keep surfing without any interruption.

 

  HUAWEI Charger Partner — 5200mAh Mobile Power Bank (CEB-Li01-5200 mAh)  

As we know, HUAWEI only released this charger partner at the battery capacity of 5200 mAh. It should be based on the consideration that the usual HUAWEI mobile Smartphone and mobile WiFi incorporates the battery around 2500mAh, so it’s better for a power bank to give one device twice support after one time power charge. With this capacity, the cost of battery is acceptable and easy to take for users.

 

 

This power bank could use as flashlight. With only 200g weight, it’s easy to take in hand or pocket. With a mini USB connector, it could support two devices to charge power simultaneously. And the USB could use for most of the mobile Android phones, tablets and mobile WiFi hotspots.  

 

Somebody may ask, here now I don’t have a mobile WiFi, but I do need a mobile WiFi and power bank 2 in 1, is there a device have this function? The answer is yes. HUAWEI had focused on the demand from customers, so they released a new mobile WiFi and power bank 2 in 1 gadgets, the model number is HUAWEI E5756:

The peak download speed could reach 42Mbps and this is the fastest 3G download speed that a mobile gadget could reach. Then the extra function as a mobile power bank, HUAWEI E5756s-2 could not only give Android phones, tablets and other mobile terminals power supply, it could also extend itself usage time.

What’s the difference between HUAWEI E5331 and HUAWEI E5220?

At the beginning of 2013, we found Huawei released a new pocket WiFi on CES 2013. At the first sit when we see it, we thought it was Huawei E5331 3G 21Mbps Mobile WiFi, because from the outside appearance, it's completely the same as Huawei E5331.  

 

However, after we read the specifications on the stick, we got to know we are wrong. It's the new mobile WiFi hotspot Huawei E5220. Then here comes a question: why did Huawei release a same model with different name?  

 

On the stick beside the demo of Huawei E5220, we read that Huawei E5220 supports single, dual or triple UMTS bands by its variant model. This feature is also specified on Huawei E5331.Huawei E5220 supports maximum download speed up to 21.6mbps, and upload speed to 5.76Mbps. It's also the same as E5331.    

 

The key feature of Huawei E5220 should be the link time. It says Huawei E5220 could network in 5 seconds with HiLink technology. HiLink is a new user-friendly system that users don't need install any software or setup any parameters, once the device with HiLink technology connects the supported gadgets, the gadgets can then start surfing freely.  

 

It's obvious that this system brings much convenience for customers and save much time. Take a example, in the past, if you use Huawei E372 and plug it to PC, it would take around 1 or 2 minutes to install the driver in the modem; after driver installed to PC, you need to setup the parameters, such as Profile, APN, dial number etc... and if there is something wrong in the settings, you may can't get connected to Internet. With HiLink technology, it would completely change this situation, once you plug the Huawei E3251 HiLink USB stick to PC, the PC then get connected in 5 seconds, no driver installation, no setup. And you can manage the modem through Web UI.  

 

Huawei E5220 also follows this rule. After the WiFi enabled devices get connected to E5220, they can surf in 5 seconds, or slower in 10 seconds. No setup and driver are needed. In our opinion, this should be the revolution for this new pocket WiFi.    

 

 

What's more, Huawei E5220 supports maximum 10 users to share the network while Huawei E5331 supports 8 users.  From the above two upgraded features, we can see Huawei E5220 has different system from E5331 and it also improve the user experience and functions.
