Just a heads up, there are report of MiFi devices being recalled in the U.S. and Canada due to battery problems. These devices are sold in New Zealand through Vodafone.

Does anyone actually own one of these? I've never seen one used.

Yes, there are a few around.

I have contacted Novatel Wireless and received the following:

"As a preventive measure, we are replacing batteries and battery doors for our Canadian customers only. This is not a recall and Vodafone New Zealand is not affected."

So it appears New Zealand users are on the clear.
