Each weBoost Drive Sleek is tailored for different vehicle applications and situations.
Drive Sleek for Cars and SUVs
The standard Drive Sleek is ideal for cars, vans, and SUVs. The kit comes with a magnet mount antenna that easily adheres to the roof of any vehicle and a cradle mount that fits any device. It works great for those who frequently drive in urban and suburban areas. For the same great performance, but at a lower cost, consider the Drive Sleek Refurbished. For extra power, the Drive Sleek can be paired with the SMB Connector 12’’ Magnet Mount Antenna.
Drive Sleek for Trucks & Semis
Paring the Drive Sleek with an OTR (Over-the-Road) antenna makes a great configuration for large trucks and semis. Rather than using a magnet, a fixed installation is required to prevent the antenna from falling or moving while driving on rugged dirt roads or smooth highways. This way, any device sitting on the cradle receives consistent, reliable service.
The weBoost Drive Sleek cellular signal booster is a simple, effective solution to maintain continuous communication for all cellular-enabled devices – smartphones, tablets, etc - in your car, truck, van, RV, or boat.

How does the Drive Sleek work?
The Drive Sleek captures your existing outside signal, amplifies it, and provides the device nested in the cradle with a stronger cell signal.
To learn more about how vehicle signal boosters work, our blog goes into more detail.
Why should I buy the Drive Sleek?
If you only need to amplify one cellular device, the Drive sleek is a great and affordable option. It works best in urban and suburban areas and is ideal for Uber drivers, other service drivers, and people who have long commutes. The weBoost Drive Sleek will reduce buffering and eliminate dropped calls by keeping you connected to your nearest towers.
For whole vehicle coverage, check out the weBoost Drive Reach or weBoost Drive X. If you find yourself driving in extremely rural, off-the-grid areas, we recommend the Drive Reach. For urban or suburban areas, the weBoost Drive X will work great, but the Reach will still provide more powerful coverage.
Please call us at 1-800-568-2723 for a free consultation and answers to any other questions you might have.
Does my phone need to sit in the Drive Sleek cradle?
Yes. Your cellular device must be in the cradle to receive boosted cell signal.
What phones fit in the Drive Sleek cradle?
The adjustable cradle fits any device between 5.1’’ and 7.5’’ long.
Do I need to remove my phone case for the Drive Sleek to work?
Unless you have a metal case, you don’t need to remove your phone case for the Drive Sleek to work. Metal blocks cell signal, so it may prevent your phone from receiving maximum amplification.
What’s the difference between the Drive Sleek and Drive Sleek OTR?
The only difference between the two kits is the external antenna. The Drive Sleek includes a standard magnet mount fin outdoor antenna, while Drive Sleek OTR includes an OTR antenna. The OTR antenna requires a fixed installation and is designed for trucks and semis.
Can I use the Drive Sleek in extremely weak signal areas?
We don’t recommend the Drive Sleek for extremely weak signal areas. It works best in urban and suburban areas. For those extreme cases, consider the Drive Reach.
Can the Drive Sleek be paired with other antennas?
Yes. Yes. As long as the antennas have an SMB connector, they will work. If the antennas do not have an SMB connector, you’ll need an adapter. Here are a few compatible antennas:
