Hey all! I was just looking around on amazon trying to find an external battery for my phone and found this:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/150Mbps-Mobi...powerbank+wifi

Though I have some questions for anyone that has one of these (or anything similar! I noticed they're pretty generic).
1. When I 'rebroadcast' the wifi signal for example my xbox, does it drain the battery of the dongle?
2. Is it safe? By this I mine could I possibly be buying a device with MITM abilities?

Thanks

1) if it's running from the battery then yes it's going to use the battery, if it's plugged into something providing power then it may not use the battery (or at least shouldn't use it much). To broadcast wifi it looks like it will need to be plugged into something like a 3G dongle so it may not be that useful at home (there's not a lot of info about what modes it can work in)

2) probably as safe as any other router you've bought.
