In order to use a 110v extension cord from my router it would need to go through an outside wall. through the crawlspace and through an inside wall. That would be an electrical code violation and not something I want to risk doing. It's possible to find an electrical circuit in the the crawlspace to tap into, install a junction box and install an outdoor rated outlet on the outside wall below the modem. That's a lot more work than just running another low voltage cable.

The battery is an interesting idea. I'll probably just run another cat6 cable since I already have everything except the POE splitter.

Of course you do what's best in your case, those were merely some suggestions.;)
I might try the battery thingy myself, since it also provides a power failure backup at the same time.

I looked at them a while back, and they were all low level CAT rated, verses buying the newer Sierra MC series modems which supported the latest LTE releases.
The HAT version doesnt have a modem embedded like the shields previously. Its pretty new-ish.

oh that's pretty slick, but a USB enclosure is still cheaper.

Granted if you're tight on space, that's not a bad idea.
