TAN1 clip-on Wi-Fi adapter provides Windows 8 tablets and notebooks with greater power, versatility

Chino, CA – April 30th, 2013
—Following the momentum of the Windows 8 launch from Microsoft, Amped Wireless, the leading manufacturer of high power, long range wireless communication products for the home and office, today began shipping the TAN1, the first high power Wi-Fi Adapter designed specifically for use with Windows 8 tablets, Ultrabooks and laptops.

"With more than 60 million licenses sold as of January 2013, Windows 8 is quickly becoming a success with consumers and businesses. And while there are some great new features for managing Wi-Fi in Windows 8, manufacturers are still compromising Wi-Fi performance for aesthetics and slimmer form factors," stated Jason Owen, CEO, Amped Wireless. "With the TAN1, Windows 8 users now have a true plug and play solution for uncompromised long range Wi-Fi performance that allows for connections to Wi-Fi networks from much greater distances. Home users can roam freely throughout their home without worrying about disconnects or buffering, while business users can connect to Wi-Fi hotspots with ease while at airports or hotels."

The TAN1 features Amped Wireless' award winning high power technology to provide Windows 8 tablets, Ultrabooks and laptops with up to three times greater Wi-Fi range and performance compared to standard embedded Wi-Fi adapters.

The TAN1 connects to the USB port of the device, requires no additional software or driver set-up and provides instant long range Wi-Fi connectivity. It features an elegant, compact form factor that may be used on a flat surface or safely fastened to the edge of a screen with an adjustable clip. It can also be fastened to most tablets using protective cases (the TAN1 is not compatible with Windows 8 RT, Android or iOS devices).

Key Features of TAN1 include:

  • Plug and play solution that provides Windows 8 devices with up to 3x the Wi-Fi range compared to the embedded Wi-Fi adapter
  • High power 600mW Wi-Fi amplifiers and high gain antennas improve Wi-Fi performance
  • Low noise amplifiers for improving Wi-Fi receiving capabilities
  • Adjustable clip to accommodate all tablets and cases
  • Includes Wi-Fi Analytics App for Windows 8 for analyzing and optimizing Wi-Fi networks

The TAN1 High Power Wi-Fi Adapter for Windows 8 retails for $59.99. It can be purchased now at and will be carried in retail locations nationwide beginning early May 2013.
