Where in HKIA is the shop located, and do you remember it's name? I'm passing through HK tomorrow and would like to pick one up.

I've tried buying it on the CX online duty free shop for my HKG-LGW-HKG flights but it always says "We regret that the service is not available on this flight."

Sound and Vision, Landside in T1 and T2 as well as airside. They sell all the electronics.

Google the HKIA layout map

Thanks for that.

Unfortunately, all of the Sound & Vision outlets at HKIA were out of stock of the device this evening and don't know when they'll get more in. "Maybe next month", they say.

Surprisingly, there were two other people in the shop at the same time as me trying to buy the Pokefi, so it clearly is very much in demand.

I'll try again next time I pass through HK, or will see if it becomes available on a CX flight.

Just found this thread. Thanks for the information. I'm curious as to how long the battery takes to charge and the voltage specifications (i.e. 110-240V)? Thanks.

Never had to charge battery from dead state.

Input is USB for charging.

Thanks. Since some electronics do not allow you to charge both 110/240V, wanted to make sure the base unit allows for this.

Most if not all AC to USB adapter chargers are 100-240V input-capable now.

Pokefi in China

Just a note since beginning of November, I was unable to connect to all Google services and WhatsApp directly where I was able to before.
I have VPN service on all my devices and needed to use that on top of the Pokefi connection.

You are correct although I have encountered the odd device which is not. I just wanted to ensure this device was or else it would be useless to me. Thanks for your response.
