    Been using Pokefi for the past three months. This was used in HK, Bangkok, China and the US. Very satisfied with it and easy to monitor due to web based app and just top up when needed.

    thinking about it, pokefi is really cheaper than skyroam. Renting from Pal Weroam will be cheaper on a daily basis compared to skyroam also

    Pokefi is currently out of stock in the whole HK airport. Stocks might be replenished mid-May.

    Anyone who has ordered pokefi through olx? I saw some OLX ads for pokefi. Price is comparable to HK prices. Not sure if the item is authentic / working.

    No stock in one of the OLX seller. The more expensive seller have them on stock as per my text inquiry recently. Still checking out the other seller or might order it thru EVA air duty free website in time for our flight to Taipei.

    In case anyone is interested, I was able to order an extra battery + battery charging dock from Pokefi via their Facebook account through Messenger. It was 300 HKD with free delivery to HK (I had a friend transfer to their bank account, she received the package for me, too). I believe they take PayPal and will ship internationally for an added fee.

    Hi, can you share the link to the extra battery + charging dock? I can't seem to find it on Facebook. Thank you!

    You just have to send them a message. They don't advertise it. :)

    Where do you get your Pokefi? Thru their own site or thru OLX? Search thru olx and found there are 3 seller of Pokefi in OLX.

    Other recommended company/pocket wifi aside from Pokefi? To be use just in Taiwan, Japan and China.

    Just recently bought a Skyroam Solis. And it was very useful, even in Japan, where WiFi is already available everywhere.

    Don't know how I ever survived without it.

    After the initial sticker-price shock (120USD), per day it's just 9USD. Not bad.
