Sweet Sounds from a Green Machine - the Eton Soulra XL

Summary: Just replaced my older model Soulra with this. Great clarity of sound (8 speakers), the same reliable and durable battery pack as before (4 years and still charging great) and a larger solar collector for faster recharging. Also comes with an AC adaptor if you want to just plug it in. A little heavy for carrying but comes with a shoulder strap that makes the job easier. Great for the upcoming cottage and camping season.
Summary: Awesome purchase. I've used this outside a lot for the past 2 weeks I've had it and the sound quality is great especially since we're always blasting it. Its a lot louder than the Bose portable speakers which are a bit pricier, there's also no distortion when there's bass. As for the solar panel and battery life. I swear this thing does not die. Its always charging with the solar panel even with the smallest amount of light.
