Automatic Power

Hello all - I am interested in a MiFi 4150L. Does anyone know if this device will automatically turn on when it receives power from a power outlet? This may seem like an irrelevant question, but I am interested in keeping this in the car with a low wattage power inverter. It would be great to get in, start the car, and have the 4g working without any intervention. This may be wishful thinking, but do any of the wireless hotspots do this?

Thanks in advance for the help!

Steven,

The MiFi 4510L does not have a feature which will cause it to boot automatically when power is detected.  You will have to push the power button on the top of the device to boot it up.

The closest feature the MiFi posseses is a power saving feature.  You can configure the MiFi to power down after 30 minutes of inactivity or less.  That way you can walk away from your car and know that the MiFi will safely shutdown before it drains the battery.

I'm not aware of any other hotspot devices that have an automatic startup feature either.  There are larger batteries that you can buy through 3GStore.com which will double the battery life of the MiFi.
