The Sapido + Sun + Mili Combo

The Sapido + Sun + Mili Combo

I have a number of mobile internet solutions while on the road or outside doing some stuff — a Globe Tattoo on MyFi, a Smart Bro Share-It and a Bayan Broadband USB stick. Lately though, I’ve come up with another combo that seems to be working just as well.

It’s a Sun Cellular + Sapido + Mili combo and here’s how it looks.


I must admit, it’s not the prettiest set-up. If you have an unlocked Huawei E5 and 3 different SIM cards from Sun, Smart and Globe, that would be more pocket-friendly. Tethering on an Android smartphone is a juice-guzzler as well.

However, some types of set-up like this one allows for more flexibility — the Sapido is a WiFi-N router that supports HSDPA and CDMA USB dongles as well as a LAN port; the Mili portable battery gives you 1500mAh of battery capacity in one full charge (lasts about 2 to 3 hours with the dongle).

So when my SmartBro Share-It doesn’t seem to work and my Globe MyFi is acting real slow, this last resort is a life-saver.

I’m sure you guys have other last-resort alternatives for mobile internet. Do share what’s your set-up like in the comments below.

    previously, i register to SUPERSURF50 for 1 day of unlimited broadband access. Using my Galaxy Ace. Enable mobile AP and leave it charging. Be it in a car or at the apartment where there is no wifi. I use either my iPod touch or netbook to get online thru wireless. pero ngayon, not sure why i can’t register to supersurf anymore…tapos na ba?

    just look at how clumsy that thing is. Just go and buy all devices with built in 3G!

    It’s not worth the time to do those things. But a good small 7 inch 3g tablet or a netbook will do the job just fine.

      @mike – unfortunately, my Macbook Air does not have built-in 3G.

      “just look at how clumsy that thing is. Just go and buy all devices with built in 3G!”

      If i buy all 3G devices with built in 3G. Wow! yayaman mobile network nyan. Kelangan lahat kukuhaan ko ng Postpaid Mobile Internet.

      iPhone 4 – Plan 999 Mobile internet
      iPad 2 3G – Plan 999 Mobile Internet
      Samsung Galaxy Tab – Plan 999 Mobile Internet
      Nokia N8 – Plan 999 Mobile Internet

      Isipin mo kung lahat ng devices ko is 3G mobile internet gagamitin ko then ang laki ng magagastos ko kasi individual ang connection.

      Unlike i have a 3G router then isang connection lang ang gagamitin ko sa lahat ng gadgets ko.

    • frenchy says:

      not sure if mike is getting the idea. for users like Yuga who needs to use many different gadgets at a time, a wifi or 3g router is the best to use.

    sana ma-review mo rin ung Sapido MB-1112.

    meron akong nakita yan sa store ng pcchain sa sa north and greenhills.

  11. this looks nicer, although WAN/LAN port is separate. but if only 3G usb stick, this one has built in battery

    will sapido work with lamborghini tatoo stick?

  13. jayden10 says:

    I’m using a 3g rechargeable router from cdrking for PHP 2000.00. I connect my unlocked Smartbro dongle (zte mf627 model) to it and it does the job.

  14. Bob says:

    This is a cool gadget if you are looking for on the router but I think it is a lot better if it can be charged through solar panel.
    Is it possible to charge in solar?

    Thank you.
