Huawei E8372 4G/LTE Wifi Wingle | Technical Details, Review And Setup Tutorial

First, I will start with a simple question. Why you need a 4g/LTE wingle or dongle?

If you are planning to purchase one, you might know the answer. Here are my explanations.

If you or your family members have a 3G smartphone and not have a high budget to upgrade to a new 4G/LTE smartphone, 4G/LTE dongles will be a boon.

Moreover, your laptops, tablets which support wifi can connect to the 4G dongle and enjoy the high-speed internet without getting separate internet connections.

Several types of dongles and wingles are available in the market. You have to choose the one for your needs carefully.

In this post, I will introduce you to Huawei E8372 wingle, which I recently tested.

Huawei E8372 is a 4G/LTE wingle with CAT4 technology. This works with all sim cards that support 4G, including Jio. This is an unlocked device, which means it can use with any sim card and can shift 4G to 3G to 2G according to your network in the location.

CAT4 technology gives you high-speed data transfer up to 150Mbps.

Once you set up the device, it creates a wifi hotspot, and up to 10 WiFi devices can be connected at the same time. You can use it with any USB adapter, even with a car charger. So while moving also you can create a wifi hub in your vehicle.

One notable feature of Huawei E8372 is, It has an SD card slot. So you can store data in the SD card and access over the wifi network.

      • Hi Rejith, It gives reliable wifi coverage up to a radius of a minimum of 10 meters. It varies depends on the location where you keep the wifi wingle.

  1. Huawei E8372 has 3 main versions. 153, 155 & 608.
    153 Model can’t use in Sri Lanka. I have a problem with choosing a one device among 155 & 608. I’m sure 155 supports in my country but it doesn’t have a Card Slot. I checked in so many shopping websites and found different item descriptions for the 608. Some of them matches to my country’s frequencies but some does not. Please help me to make a decision.

    • Hi there, Please tell me your kidding with that question! A charger that is rated 2.4 amps will not just blast every device connected to it with full power! That is not possible! What 2.4 amps means it can supply current (up to) 2.4 amps. Yes you can charge any device… any, with that 2.4 amp charger! The Huawei stick will only draw it’s required amount of amps which is well below the max 2.4 amp rating of your charger! Pleased to help. Have a nice day.
