SureCall Fusion2Go 3.0 vs WeBoost Drive 4G-X
Recently, SureCall announced the release of their new Fusion2Go 3.0 mobile cell phone signal booster. Normally, a company releasing a new version of a product wouldn’t be that big of a deal. But when the Fusion2Go 3.0 came out, the folks at SureCall knew that they had really hit a home run. So, they hired an independent lab, CKC Laboratories, to run a detailed comparison of their new Fusion2Go 3.0 booster against the more popular WeBoost Drive 4G-X. The results were pretty awesome! As a nerd, I see this as a sort of virtual MMA fight. A virtual bout that I am inventively calling SureCall Fusion2Go 3.0 vs WeBoost Drive 4G-X.
With the deep booming voice of a ring fight announcer:
“In this corner… wearing red trunks, formerly known as Wilson Electronics. Hailing from the southwest corner of the state of Utah, the WeBoost Drive 4G-X.”
“In the opposite corner… wearing teal trunks, with an amazing backstory of fulfilling the American Dream, the SureCall Fusion2Go 3.0”
Then the “Let’s Get Ready to Rumble” guy, who by the way, has made over $400 million for trademarking the phrase says, “Let’s get ready to rumbllllle!!!!”
If you head over to the neat little raiseyourbars.surecall.com best vehicle page that SureCall set up, you can see a brief overview of the comparison test results. If you’re a total nerd, like me, you can enter your email address and download the complete report. I did. It’s 51 pages of complete nerdvana. Therefore, it’s interesting to only the biggest of RF nerds.
With the right amount of caffeine, I was able to make it through all 51 pages of the report. These two amplifiers (or signal boosters) were both given the same 8 tests in identical environments. The results of each of these tests would provide real insight into the actual performance capabilities of each signal booster. You are welcome to go over the test results if you want, but I’m going to paraphrase it all below.
WARNING! Things are about to get technical!
The different tests were:
- Downlink ripple in the pass band – which, as the name would suggest, tests the amount of ripple in the pass band. A lower ripple is desired. Lower ripple means that the booster is more evenly amplifying all frequencies in the frequency band being tested. Winner = Fusion2Go 3.0
- Output power uplink – measures the output power for the signal from the booster back to the cell phone tower. Better uplink power means you can get a better connection further away from the cell tower. Winner = Fusion2Go 3.0
- Downlink EVM – measures the Error Vector Magnitude of each RF path received from the cell phone tower. Basically, the EVM is the difference between the expected signal and the received signal. A lower EVM percentage is more desirable. Winner = Fusion2Go 3.0
- Uplink EVM – the same test as above, but it measures the EVM in the direction of the signal from the booster to the cell phone tower. Winner = Fusion2Go 3.0
- Uplink sensitivity – measures how well the booster works at really low signal levels. The signal was turned down until the EVM reached 13.5% for each amplifier. Lower sensitivity is better. Winner = Fusion2Go 3.0
- Uplink adjacent channel power – measures how much of the amplified signal “spills into” the neighboring channel’s path. The amplifier that can get to higher power and still remain within spec is better. Winner = Fusion2Go 3.0
- Uplink mask emission – measures the uplink signal and verifies that it is operating within the emission limits. This is a pass/fail kind of test. But SureCall passed at at higher power level. Winner = Fusion2Go 3.0
- Intermodulation – measures output power of the booster at two-tone input signals where the intermodulation products of those tones are operating at the FCC consumer limit. Higher power at limit is better. Winner = Fusion2Go 3.0
Real World Results
Clearly, test results in a lab don’t always equate to better results in real-world applications. I know that a while ago I tested the Fusion2Go 2.0 booster at a remote cabin location and I was greatly impressed with the results. It would seem logical that with much better test results, the Fusion2Go 3.0 amplifier would do even better, right?
I have every intention to create a comparison video of my own to compare the SureCall Fusion2Go 3.0 vs WeBoost Drive 4G-X as soon as I get some free time. But for now, I found a SureCall comparison video that beat me to it. Check it out!
So, who wins in this virtual matchup of the SureCall Fusion2Go 3.0 vs WeBoost Drive 4G-X? Clearly, looking at all the evidence above, the SureCall Fusion2Go 3.0 is the unanimous winner. I was pretty impressed by the test results. I’m super excited to break out my fancy network analyzer and do some independent testing of my own.
If you’re sick of dropped calls, dead zones and terrible data speeds and you’d like to stay connected while on the road, the SureCall Fusion2Go 3.0 Kit is the best mobile cell phone signal booster on the market. Don’t forget that I am always happy to sell one to you in my online shop here!
