Summary: This is a great portable music solution for those that spend a lot of time outdoors. We use it for tailgating and it provides the perfect amount of sound, although we usually have to run it at max volume to overcome the background noise of other tailgaters. It charges nicely, even under cloudy conditions. We have forgotten to charge it before use, and after a few minutes in the sun it is ready to charge itself as it plays music. Sound quality is very nice.
Summary: I like and use this often. It is great for working out in the garden on a sunny afternoon, it puts out pretty good sound, not perfect but it does pretty darn good... I would buy this as a gift for a good friend, they always want it when they see it.
Summary: I purchased the sound system during the 2013 Holiday Season. When it arrived I was very excited. It worked as advertised, until I tried to plug in my iPhone 4. I was presented with the message "this accessory is not supported by iPhone". I tried again and again, even cleaning out my 30-pin connector port didn't do the trick. A little internet research on my part suggested that this was a common occurrence among older iPhone/iPod docks and connectors.
Summary: This unit is very well made(as all eton products are) It's perfect for outdoor parties(indoor also, assuming you plug it in) It gets loud, has great sound and very decent bass with 22w and 2 tweeters, four woofers, two passive side firing subwoofers. the remote makes it nice to have across the campsite or pool.(It's also splash resistant) Its pretty heavy, so plan to set it and use the remote.
Summary: We used this speaker system while camping out on a private island in Maine this summer. Considering the fact that we had no electricity to recharge the speaker for the whole two weeks and that the weather was mostly overcast and rainy, I am very surprised at how well this product worked. Every night before we went to bed we set the speaker in the window to catch the early morning sun.
Summary: Easy, put it at my window open up the solar panel. Charging very good Generally we get 6 hour full sun every day in summer time. Day time is almost 15 hour here in Boston summer time. 6 hour full sun + 9 hours not much sun (This solar panel can charge even not much sun light) It fully charged my iPod touch about 2 days, speakers itself take longer time since battery is bigger.
Summary: I found this device to be quite enjoyable. It's quite attractive and sounds very nice given its size. It's suitable for parties, small gatherings, working outdoors and the like. You can charge the device via an included adapter or via the solar panel. I imagine that if I was the sort of the person who went to the beach, this is the kind of thing I would take with me.
Summary: I bought this to last during my 5 day camping trip on a Vermont island. I have been trying it out at home and so far it is great quality, only problem is, the skip track button hasn't been working with any of my ipods (all 4 nano generations) I will be trying it with a brand new ipod classic. I like it, great product, I would buy it again, although I wonder if skip track is broken?
GREAT sound quality, reliable solar charging and yes - all day - and night music!

Summary: I have owned other Eton products, (They manufacture crank radios for emergency, weather and shortwave radios etc..) Even so, when I got this from Amazon I was impressed at how the box that this comes in is is constructed, you can store the radio back into the box when not in use.. neat! It comes with an AC charger, a carry strap and a remote.
