Yes- The pocket WiFi mobile HotSpot comes with a local Israeli electric charger and directions.

Please note that the expected battery life of a pocket WiFi is about 2-4 hours, and uses a Micro-USB connection. So if you plan on using the pocket WiFi outdoors for an extended period of time, we strongly advise you take a power bank or an external battery. If you planning on traveling in Israel by car, you may wish to bring your own micro-USB card charger.

Pocket WiFi Rental with Unlimited Internet in Israel


When visiting Israel, many tourists require an unlimited internet connection to stay connected to their loved ones or businesses. Some hotels charge a large fee for the internet connection, which is only available in the hotel and often, the WiFi connection at the hotel will be slow. One small Pocket Wifi Mobile Hotspot device can change all that and provide you with an unlimited internet connection: A Pocket WiFi Device through which you can have unlimited Internet in Israel.


The Benefits of a Pocket WiFi

Many travelers who come to Israel love to utilize NES Mobile’s Pocket WiFi rental because it gives them an excellent and unlimited WiFi connection all over Israel.  There are many additional reasons why they really adore this device, including some of the following:

  1.  As a tourist, you will be asked to pay a large amount of money for roaming charges if you use your USA provider, but with NES Mobile’s Israel Pocket WiFi, you will only be charged a low daily rate for UNLIMITED and quick internet connection!
  2.  If you opt to stay in a hotel in Israel, they may charge you as much as $25 per night for just one device that you can only use when you are at the hotel – speed will vary based on occupancy and the hotel connection. However, if you choose to rent NES Mobile Pocket WiFi, you will have great internet connection all around the country (not just in your hotel room). The Mobile Hotspot unit can connect up to 5 devices at once!
  3.  The NES Mobile hotspot uses Cellcom’s network, which is the largest internet provider in Israel.


Why is NES Mobile Pocket WiFi The Best In Israel?

  1.  NES Mobile’s Hotspot offers Unlimited services with no “slow down period”.Unlike other providers that slow down the connection after you use 3-5 Gigs, with the NES device, there’s no slow-down at all!
  2.  NES Mobile Pocket WiFi can be used even when charging unlike other devices which don’t function while charging the unit; an important advantage when the average battery of a Mobile Hotspot device lasts 2-4 hours. If you need a longer battery life, we strongly recommend bringing a power bank or an external battery with a Micro USB connection to charge the pocket WiFi while outdoors.
  3.  NES Mobile has no deposit fees and no hidden fees. Another wonderful thing about the NES Mobile Hotspot is that the insurance fee is already included in the price. Remember that you will only pay for it when you arrive in Israel. This means that even if the Pocket WiFi device is already delivered to you in the USA seven days before you travel, you will not be obliged to pay and when you go back to your place, you will be provided with an additional week before returning the Mobile Hotspot device to NES Mobile.


So, when you visit Israel, order the NES Mobile Pocket Wifi – that offers the best UNLIMITED internet connection in Israel.

Mobile Hotspot – Battery

The battery of the mobile hotspot will usually hold for an average of 4 hours of usage. This, of course, depends on cellular reception and actual usage. In other words, if you are, say, in the Judea Desert or Massada and you are uploading a movie you just made, the battery may drain faster.

But, there is also good news; our Israel mobile hotspot will also work with an external power bank. This means that you can add several more hours of work with the device, depending on the power banks’ capacity.
