Hi all,

I’m not an expert in RF. I have been trying a number of external cellular antenna for Electron and I found the Taolass MA104 (datasheet) getting signal in places where other antennas fail. And it includes a GPS antenna too!

On the other side, I read this antenna has a 10W max consumption, rather than 5W as the antenna provided with the kit. Can I safely use this antenna with my electron e-series (2G/3G) or will affect overall power consumption? Is any particular specification I should look at while choosing an antenna?

Thanks
Simone
