Let’s face it, your Wi-Fi coverage in your home or office most likely suffers from weak or even dead zones. We’ve reviewed a few Wi-Fi range extenders here at Techaeris — from the larger router size to the smaller outlet size. All have one thing in common though, they require an electrical outlet and some sort of setup. But what if you could extend your wireless signal without electricity? That’s what the MIZEUS Group is hoping to be able to do with the ZeusPro, which is, according to them, the world’s first universal non-electrical Wi-Fi amplifier.
So just how exactly does a Wi-Fi amplifier work without being powered? David Melman, the founder of MIZEUS, came up with the idea of combining the focusing frequency technology that existed in satellite receivers with the traditional router antenna. In short, the ZeusPro straps onto the existing antennas on your wireless router, and MIZEUS claims that it can boost your Wi-Fi signal by two or three times, as well as decrease lag and disconnections during online gaming.
As you can see from the video above, ZeusPro basically turns your 360° wireless signal into a focused 180° signal. If you have two or more antennas of course, you can rotate the ZeusPro on different antennas to keep your 360° range if you choose. The curved metal body allows for focused Wi-Fi signals, and the plastic clip with foam grip will fit quickly on existing router antennas. The ZeusPro is compatible with traditional routers including Asus, Netgear, D-Link, Linksys, Cisco, and more.
If MIZEUS’ stretch goals are met, the ZeusMax — a larger version of ZeusPro — will be offered once the campaign hits $50,000, and at $150,000 the ZeusEX for routers with interior antennas will be available.
Their Indiegogo campaign has already reached 180% of their goal with 23 days remaining. You can still pick up a 3 pack for $27USD, or other combinations of 1, 2, or 4 for around $10USD per ZeusPro. The ZeusPro is expected to ship in October.
