Why a vehicle cell booster is a “must-have” for winter

I just got one of those fancy cellular phones. It’s just for emergencies, like if I get stranded somewhere in the car.

literally everyone who got a phone in the 1990s

Don’t even try to pretend you didn’t say that. Because we all said that. We all had those gigantic horsey-looking phones that didn’t do anything but make calls and we all justified it by saying it was an essential piece of emergency gear.

Two decades later, we don’t think of our phones as emergency gear, but as a critical part of ourselves. They are a component of our personalities, a cybernetic attachment which allows us to feel connected in a world where connection is increasingly difficult.

That’s why cell boosters are essential

Cellular signal boosters are an amazing technology that improves your ability to connect. Whether you’re in your home, in the car, in the office, or wherever you are, this single piece of technology makes your phone work better. It works with practically any phone, lasts 3-4 times longer than most phones, and costs less than a premium phone. What’s not to like?

While all cell boosters are essential, the most essential of all has to be the vehicle cell booster. After all, having great cell service in the car is the excuse you gave for getting your first cell phone. It’s not that you’ll necessarily do a lot of driving this winter, but when the car breaks down even a mile from home in the winter, that may as well be a million miles away.

Get a cell booster now and install it yourself.

The cell booster on the top of this article is the weBoost Drive Reach. No it isn’t the cheapest cell booster on the market. But it is incredibly powerful and will give great cell service to everyone in practically any size vehicle. You can install it yourself by feeding thin wires through the panel gaps in your car, attach it with industrial Velcro to the carpet, and power it through the lighter/utility socket if you want.

Being able to do an installation like this yourself is an extra added benefit this year, when you might be trying to save money and avoid car repair shops for other reasons. Believe me, it’s an easy install and you don’t need to make any permanent changes to the car.

With the Drive Reach, you’ll get cell service in more remote areas, you’ll get fewer dropped calls and faster data. If disaster ever does hit, you’ll be able to reach out for help in more places, and that’s really what it’s all about.
