Samsung Galaxy S7 / Galaxy S7 Edge Patch Lead

 

Key Features

 

  • Passive Induction connector

  • Flexible 1m RG174 cable

  • SMA Male connector (supplied with adapter to FME Male).

 

Performance

 

  • The best results are always achieved using a cradle designed specifically for your Galaxy S5

  • We strongly recommend using the Galaxy Cradle, universal cradles can be used, however a fitted cradle will produce the best results.

 

Additional

 

  • To provide you with the best performing passive antenna connection, we ran a series of mini-patch antennas through a number of tests and determined the Taoglas Phoenix antenna as the hands-down winner

  • As with all passive antennas, the patch must be aligned with the phones internal antenna which requires trialling a number of different positions

  • On most handsets we find placing the patch horizontally, either up the top or the bottom against the back.

 

What does a passive patch lead do?

 

  • Despite not having an external antenna port, this phone may benefit from an external antenna by using a passive patch lead at reduced performance

  • This type of patch lead has a pad containing a specially designed coil of wire and uses the principle of electromagnetic induction to enable signal to re-radiate from the pad to the phones internal antenna

  • Typically, users' experience anywhere from 5-10dB of signal loss depending on the design of the mobile phone, and the placement of the passive pad

  • To function effectively the pad must be placed directly on top of the phone's internal antenna

  • An external antenna is used to increase signal strength and quality - this results in faster mobile internet access, increased usable range from a cell tower, improved voice quality and reduced call drop-outs

  • For more information please see our guide to Passive Connectors.

 

A heads up!

 

  • Passive patch leads use a generic design - they consist of a coil of wire that acts as a small antenna - this same design is used for all phone brands

  • By their very nature, passive patch leads will never work as well as a direct connecting patch lead (i.e. one that has a metal-on-metal transfer of signal)

  • In comparison, a fitted phone cradle has a much larger metal coil that is specifically designed to match the phones internal antenna, providing far better performance

  • We offer this product as a cheaper alternative, but have had mixed results with its success

  • For the best results we highly recommend the purchase of a cradle designed specifically for your phone.
