Difference between satellites?

I've recently bought the 'NETGEAR Orbi Ultimate Whole Home Mesh Wi-Fi System (Router + 2 Satellite Extenders), AC3000 (RBK53)' but anticipate only needing the one satellite. I have a friend that wants to take my spare satellite off me for his Orbi system. Will it work? Or is the satellite I got in my 1 + 2 pack linked in some way which means it can't be used as an add-on in his system?

 

Thanks

Re: Difference between satellites?

No. You can hand off your spare RBS. I recently barrowed my buddies RBS from his RBK53 system to test on a RBR50 I got from someone else. Works great. Smiley Wink
