Design and Features
The Unite Explore is a rugged little brick at 4.5 by 2.8 by 0.8 inches and 6.3 ounces. It's covered in rubber bumpers and is splash resistant, though not dunkable. On the front, there's a bright 2.4-inch, 320-by-240 touch screen that lets you quickly check the network name, password, data used, and devices attached to the hotspot. The charging port, which also lets you connect it as a USB modem, is a USB 3.0 port; you can also use a micro USB cable to charge the hotspot. TS9 antennas are optional.
