Product Benefits

Why choose Bobcat Miner 300?


Bobcat Miner 300 is powered by EasyLinkin, who is a leading LoRaWAN Gateway manufacturer and invests heavily in its own R&D capabilities. In addition to designing and manufacturing LoRaWAN gateways and modules, Easylinkin owns more than 200 LPWAN related patents and has so far raised $85 million in total funding. Easylinkin’s gateways and solutions have been deployed across 100+ cities in China and abroad. It has deployed Lora networks for Alibaba in Hangzhou City, 510,000 LoRa water meters in China, and 55,000 LoR electricity meters for Indonesia and Mongolia.




How does the Bobcat Miner 300 compare to other Helium compliant miners such as RAK, Nebra, and Syncrob?


Bobcat Miner 300 uses an enhanced 4dbi antenna, this provides more coverage than most of our competitors on the market. It uses a 64GB eMMC flash instead of an external SD card. The flash is welded on the motherboard to avoid loose connection, and also has a longer life expectancy of up to 10 years because it allows 3000 write cycles, compared to 500 write cycles allowed by an SD card. Bobcat Miner 300 also uses a quad-core ARM processor, which consumes ultra-low voltage, running on no more than 0.12kWh per day.





Usage & Specs

How much internet does a miner consume per day


Here is an awesome article written by the community on this. Quoting from the article: So the TLDR is budget for 30gb between receive and transmit. Is that a lot? According to some sources, Netflix consumes between 20-60gb/month. So, bringing a Helium miner into your home is like having another roommate who watches a lot of Netflix.




Do I need to buy a LoRa antenna to boost the miner’s range?


Bobcat Miner 300 comes with an enhanced 4dBi antenna which provides wider coverage than 2dBi antennas. We suggest you try this first before deciding. For optimal miner placement, check out these awesome articles on where to place the miner and how it mines.
