    Netgear Nighthawk M1 LTE Mobile Hotspot Router MR1100; Battery In Or Out On AC Power?

    As posted above, if you are using a Netgear Nighthawk M1 LTE Mobile Hotspot Router MR1100, and have it plugged in to external power, do you leave the battery in the device or remove it? I know that it will operate with the battery remove from it, I am just wondering what would be the most compelling reasons to leave it on vs, leaving it out of the device?

    I’m lazy and leave the battery in, I figure if it goes bad that’s what mobile device insurance is for, plus it’s quicker for me to grab and run.

    I've gone both ways. You'll need the battery in if you don't have it connected to a higher wattage power supply (I want to say 5 watts). Without the battery, the unit draws more power and it can possibly power cycle while operating. (I noticed it one night while trying to troubleshoot the connection... the unit was power cycling. Come to discover that the power supply wasn't sufficient for running it without the battery.)

    I use both my nighthawks without batteries. You do need a good usb power supple. If I try to power it from the usb port of my WRT1900AC it will boot up and run but will not provide a stable internet connection. With a 2A power supple it works flawlessly.

    I think this is discussed in the Nighthawk thread. A good number of folks leave it out.

    I have 3 of them and leave the battery in all of them. No problems here. I consider it a battery back up in case of external power loss.

    One that powers my place in a marginal signal area battery is out, sister left her battery in for a while and it overheats to where it won’t charge. Mine used to do that too, it definitely gets too hot. I have this fan under mine, it helps a lot:

    I recently got myself a new Synology Router, RT2600, and it supports USB to Nighthawk tethering natively. Effectively a total of 3 wan connections but can only use 2 at a time.

    All I did was hook my nighthawk into 2 different switches. No need for another router.
