Wifi Router VS Sim Card

I just want to know, which is better to use in Taiwan, in terms of usage and cost.

I am not sure to get the wifi router or get the actual SIM card when I am destination.

Thanks in advance.

Inside wifi router there is a sim card.
Wifi router good for small group, sim card good for personnel use.

Sometimes in the train the wifi router might lose signal. Not sure about the sim card.

Wifi router has another problem, if fully connected by 5 pple, battery will run out very fast, need to prepare powerbank, even with powerbank, the router might die off in the evening around 6-7pm, cant last till 11-12pm. And every night need to charge both the router and powerbank in the hotel.

The upcoming trip, i will get sim card.

That happens when you are on the move and always hunting for base station.
Yes, always standby powerbank.
Am sure can always carry a heavy weight like 15-20K type.
