Looking to setup this hotspot I vehicle and I want it to automatically startup and shutdown with the car.

I tried this with my hotspot at home. No, it did not work. When the battery was removed, I could not get the hotspot to turn on despite receiving power via micro USB. When powered off, the red battery charging light comes on. But when you turn it on, all of the lights go off. So it appears the charging circuit is not capable of powering the unit.
Honestly, I was surprised. I had expected it to work as well. In the same way a laptop will work without its battery. But I haven't tried something similar with a phone, for example, with a removable battery (as all my phones are iPhones).
