Hey all, sorry being AFK for so long. Glad to see people are interested in doing this! Here's some responses to un-answered questions.

1). Negligible heat. Most of the heat generated by a stock AE is from the 120VAC-3.3V DC conversion.

2). The latest AE boots up in ~45-50 seconds. The older generations take about 90-120 seconds.

If your 110V AC outlet has a normal 2 or 3-pronged plug, you can just plug in your AE into it without any of the above modifications.

Definitely. I'll edit this thread in the next couple of days (maybe a week as I'm out of country at the moment) with the settings I used to enable simultaneous cellular data while attached to the AE.

Let me know if there's any other questions. I'll monitor this thread for the next week.
