This speaker is a nice sounding, light weight, long lasting portable Bluetooth box. I have brought it a variety of places now and it does the job well. It isn't the loudest speaker by any means but it is by no means quieter than one would expect from a speaker of this size.
I chose this speaker over the slightly larger version because it could be charged via micro USB and while the battery life is really good as is, I like being able to easily charge speakers like these in my car or off of a portable battery pack. Also the water resistance is a nice touch.
The speaker also has a port to charge other electronic off of, I have never used it but It's certainly a nice feature to have.
My only gripe about this speaker, and this is a really picky thing, is that it came with what I would consider an excessive amount of hard plastic packaging, it is not anything major I just don't think it is all necessary.
-Had to edit this review, I had this speaker for a little while and then in broke, I did a warranty replacement on it, and not long after getting the warranty replacement the second one broke too. It sounds good and all but also after using it for a while the range on the bluetooth is somewhat of a disappointment compared to other speakers on the market.

Seriously long play time and heavy duty!! Use these everywhere. Best speakers I could have asked for!
