QuickerTek Dualy Extreme
QuickerTek today unveiled the Dualy Extreme, a range extender for the Airport Extreme Base Station, which can help the device broadcast up to five times the standard wireless range. The Dualy Extreme features twin 3dBi antennas, coupled with either two 500mW receivers or two 1W receivers. When upgraded, the Base Station uses the full 2.4GHz range with high-speed MIMO capability. The Dualy Extreme is available starting from $350 for the user-installed, 500mW kit, with the 1W kit selling for $500.
The Dualy Extreme is also available as a pre-installed option, costing $400 and $500 for the 500mW and 1W versions on an existing Base Station. QuickerTek is also selling Base Stations that already include the Dualy Extreme, available for $600 and $750, respectively.
