Smart Travel Router and Adapter features plug configurations to fit in over 150 countries

Satechi today announced its new Smart Travel Router and Adapter with USB Port. Compatible with four of the most common plug configurations used around the world, the router/adapter also has four modes for wireless networking. In router mode, the unit enables users to create their own secure network with an Internet connection. Repeater mode connects to an existing network and strengthens a weak connection by amplifying its signal, and Access Point mode creates a wireless connection from a wired source, enabling mobility. Lastly, Client mode facilitates a wireless Internet connection for a normally Ethernet-connected device, such as a smart TV or video game console. In addition to these networking features, the device can charge other electronics with its 2.1A USB port and AC power port. Priced at $45, The Smart Travel Router and Adapter is available for purchase at Satechi.net and Amazon.
