DIWhy Not to Make Your Own Signal Booster

We’ve heard all the complaints about signal boosters, so we understand it’s tempting to try and create a DIY solution. Of course, we have a bit of a bias about why you shouldn’t do this but we’re going to provide you with a few very good (we think) arguments about why you shouldn’t do this.

The Issues With DIY Cell Phone Signal Boosters

Technical Skill

Unless you have an engineering background or are at least a very competent handyman this is going to be a difficult task for you. You have to construct antennas and connect them to coaxial cable without a premade adaptor. This requires technical skills and equipment for things such as soldering to do properly.

Not only that but altering electronics often void any kind of warranty you would have on them. While you might not do anything to your phone some online DIY cell phone signal boosters call for you to create a small antenna to insert into your devices headphone jack like in this picture.



Time Required

Time is often one of the most important resources to consider about any DIY project. With the amount of technical skill involved with making your own cell phone signal booster, it is almost guaranteed to take quite a bit of your time. If you consider your time valuable you should seriously consider the cost of just the time it would take to research and assemble your DIY cell phone signal booster.

Actual Results

The end results of the most common DIY signal boosters are often quite lackluster. You often see gains of just a few decibels which doesn’t amount to even a single bar. It can be extremely frustrating to spend all that time and money on making something only to not have any tangible results.

  1. I was really looking for a free solution but after looking at some of the DIY guides for a booster online I came across this article. I have to say that you might be right, it seems like way too much work. If I do decide to get a HiBoost booster what is the return policy like in case it doesn’t work too?
