You Should Choose This Kit If
You need an all in one solution to provide boosted voice calls and 3G data for one phone or data device in a vehicle. The Sleek comes with a 4 in magnetic antenna that sticks to the roof of your vehicle and includes a cable that runs in through a door and attaches to the Sleek Cradle. It is powered using a 12V adapter that plugs into a cigarette lighter or 12V power port.
To use the Sleek Cradle in a home or office, you'll need the Home Accessory Kit which has an AC power adapter, window mount antenna bracket, desktop cradle stand, and a convenint carrying case.
Will This Work For Me?
The Sleek Cradle signal booster is our entry level vehicle signal booster. Being a cradle, your phone or data device does need to stay in the cradle to receive the boosted signal so you'll have to use a bluetooth headset or speakerphone to make or receive calls. The Sleek will only work with one phone at a time.
The Sleek Cradle improves the signals used for both voice calls and Internet access. In areas with a weak signal, the Sleek Cradle will reduce dropped calls, improve call clarity and increase Internet data speeds. For even more powerful boosting, an optional 12 in magnetic mount antenna is available that will help receive a signal in areas where the signal is very weak.

There are many accessories available for the Sleek Cradle Signal Booster. The most popular is the Home Accessory Kit for using the Sleek in a home or office. For additional mounting options, check out our Sleek Mounts page. To power the Sleek, you can plug it in to a computer's USB port, connect it to a Sleek Battery Pack for use while hiking, camping, or in case of an emergency, or you can use the included DC Power Adapter or the optional AC Power Adapter. You can even charge your phone from the Sleek using the optional Micro-USB Cable, Mini-USB Cable, or iPhone Dock Connector (iPhone 4S and earlier only).
Installing the Sleek signal booster is very easy and because nothing is permanent, it can be moved from one vehicle to another, or brought inside a home or office for use.
Mount the included antenna on the roof of the vehicle. Route the attached coax cable in through a door opening. To protect the cable, run it under the door seal. Connect the cable to the Sleek Cradle. Then just plug in the included 12V power supply and connect it to the Sleek. When you place your phone in the cradle, you should see a stronger signal (it may take up to 30 seconds for your phone's signal strength display to update). If you already have a strong outside signal, you won't see any benefit from the Sleek so try it in a place where you typically have signal trouble.
