This is a well designed, well made, very compact, highly stylish and practical Bluetooth speaker, which enables you to listen to your music collection wirelessly from your Bluetooth enabled smartphone, tablet and laptop, etc.
It comes inside a very nice presentation box, containing a camping snap hook/carabiner to help suspend the speaker from a fixed object, a 20 cm long mini-USB to USB charge cable, a suction cup and a user manual.
The manufacturer claims that the speaker is waterproof (e.g. it can be used in a shower room) and dustproof – perfect for outdoor or indoor activities. It has a very attractive and modern looking dark grey casing, and is orange coloured silicone sealed to make it impervious to water ingress.
It's a lightweight and very dinky little speaker, with a diameter of approximately 9 cm, and a maximum thickness of about 4 cm. It has a rubber or silicone circumference with a hook fixture, which enables the speaker to be dangled from a cord, carabiner or chain, etc.
The soft touch, push button controls are located on the outside edge of the speaker, including pause/play and power on-off, Bluetooth function, volume up and down, and track shuttle forwards and backwards.
The speaker has a mini-USB input socket located on its left side. A USB to mini-USB cable lets you charge up the speaker using the USB input socket of a laptop, desktop PC, or USB compatible socket plug. It takes very roughly 1.5 hours to fully charge up the speaker from a flat battery, which then gives a playing time of somewhere between 4 and 5 hours, dependent upon the volume used. The speaker has a mini SD card slot, and can also be used for hands free calls.
Pairing this speaker with your smartphone or tablet, etc., is child's play, you simply choose the option V1-C from your list of paired devices. The sound quality is very good, with a surprisingly deep bass for a speaker of such diminutive proportions. After all, this little gadget has only 4 watts of audio power, and is comfortably small enough to slip inside a briefcase, handbag, manbag, or very small rucksack, etc.
This is a great little speaker for use when camping, hiking and biking, sailing and other water sports, weekends away at hotels and bed and breakfast accommodations, holidays overseas, barbecues and picnics, gardening, and small outdoor social events generally, etc. It’s a fantastic gift idea too.
