I've been using it from my RV for over a week and have a couple observations: The Modem/router registers ZERO power drain on my invertor. The 7000S consumed about 20 watts. This is of extreme importance to me as I rely on solar power almost exclusively and spend about 2 months a year in no generator campsites. Second, Gen5 is consistently fast. No slow periods that were so common on the 7000. It's about 3x as fast on average as VERIZON LTE, which frequently has significant slow downs.
