Amped Wireless continues to expand its wireless repertoire with a brand new 802.11 ac Wi-Fi range extender that's both powerful and compact. Dubbed the REC15A, the device offers a whopping 500 milliwatts of power, four amplifiers and a high-gain dual-band antenna in a relatively small 3-inch by 5-inch package -- it even fits neatly into a wall socket thanks to the built-in plug. The company claims that all of that power should result in up to 5,000 square feet of additional wireless coverage, which should be great for those of you with palatial estates or large backyards. The REC15A repeats both 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz WiFi signals and there's an extra wired port that you can use to attach a networked device like a PC, TV or game console. On the software side of things, it also has parental controls, adjustable settings and free Android and Windows apps that tweak the coverage even more. The REC15A is available for $99.99 and you can pre-order it from Amped Wireless starting today. It starts shipping in the first quarter of 2014.
