Now on to some technical bits. The speaker lasts roughly one hour of continuous music playing. When it is near depleting its battery it will play a sound that is like the busy signal when you call somebody. It will play this every eight seconds for just about two minutes until it shuts off. If you take the portable speaker apart you will see four components: the speaker, a plastic shell covering the speaker, a Bluetooth microchip and the battery. My purpose behind dissembling the speaker was that I was disappointed with the one hour battery life. The reason behind the disappointing battery life is a low capacity Li-Po battery; only 350mAh! Aside from the low capacity what is more alarming is that it's a pretty big battery. If you're interested, on the battery it states "SURE 3.7V 350MAH." Cellphone batteries this size these days are the same voltage and have 1300mAh and up. It is disappointing to see the battery is the cut corner when the speaker is relatively good. Overall it's a nice Bluetooth portable speaker. A good gift, too!
~ Quality sound
~ Bluetooth (worked through walls)
~ No volume controls on unit
~ Annoying constant blue blinking LED
~ Short battery life (I consider it short since a higher capacity should have been included)
Once we knew how to charge it properly it was fine, and we're able to avoid the busy signal warning by keeping it turned off and charging when not in use.
One other word of caution (learn from my fail) is that you can only sync one of these speakers to a device. So you can't buy two of them just because they're cheap and think you'll have stereo sound--only one can be synced to a device at a time.
