    Question Huawei E5331 Battery

    Hi guys,

    Anyone know where I can get a NEW battery for the Huawei E5331 (MiFi) device?
    Mine doesn't last very long anymore (3 - 4 hours when I'm on duty) and would like to get a new one (when it was new, and for a long time, it would last 8 to 10 hours)

    I was going to suggest a car charger - I have my mifi connected to a car charger (cigarette lighter) 24/7 (Ford Ranger powers all 3 of it's power points even when the engine is off). It is awesome that way as my vehicle is a permanent hotspot

    I considered that, but I was warned about it draining my car battery if I left it on and left the vehicle for a period of time.
    Suffice to say, I got over that idea because I generally use it on duty and such with me as my WiFi.
    It normally lasts me about 4 hours - 5 if I don't browse alot.
    My 3 batteries have still not arrived, but I'm patient these days.

    My ford fiesta and focus do the same. Its wonderful....bought a 24W dual charger for my car in UK. Phone changes 100% in an hour

    Yeah it is really cool. Even better is the beast of a battery Ford has fitted to the T6 Ranger (105ah) which could power the mifi for a week or more so there is no risk of a flat battery.

    Reminds me, my wife has been asking me to do the same setup in her Ecosport.... must plug my car charger in and see if her outlets are also 24/7...
