Showing 1-10 of 17
built-in battery doesn't recharge at all, so it's not at all "Portable"

Summary: I doubt that the battery of this dock has been taken away somehow and it's not at all portable as described. I don't know if it is designed in this way to cheat consumer or it happens only in this shop BlinQ. And I still have to pay the return fee to give it back to them. It's totally disappointing and shameful indeed.
Summary: I received this Denon Cocoon from Warehouse Deals. It does not keep a battery charge even though the main reason to buy it was fact that it is supposed to work without an electric cable for up to 5 hours. I have tried multiple ways of getting the battery to charge such as updating the software etc. It does not work. When I tried to return it I was simply told that the warranty was for only 30 days. Do not order from Warehouse Deals!!
Summary: glad i didnt pay full price for it .. its ok when its working , looses connection with WiFi, and i cant link it up with my iphone like it says you can. use it more as an ipod docking station but i can do that with most devices around the house .
Summary: WOULD NOT CONNECT TO MY WIFI, TRIED EVERYTHING POSSIBLE, RANG SKY UP THEY SAID ITS A PROBLEM WITH DENON, NOT VERY HAPPY AT ALL. THOUGHT I GOT A BARGAIN, HEAP OF JUNK, CAME WELL PACKAGED BUT I HAD TO COLLECT IT FROM A COLLECT PLUS STORE AS AMAZON INSISTED ON USING AMAZON LOGISTICS WHICH ARE EVEN MORE WORSE THAN YODEL, THINKING IT WOULD BE QUITE LIGHT I WENT OVER TO PICK IT UP IT WAS SO HEAVY, AND I HURT MY BACK,
Good - although the £500 RRP is far too ambitious!

Summary: If you've got a 30 pin iPod or iPhone and are looking for a speaker dock, you could do a lot worse than Denon's kidney bean shaped Cocoon. This is the smaller portable version which claims to be waterproof (I haven't tested this claim) and offers Apple Airplay and Internet Radio as well as playing music from your iPod. As another reviewer mentions, this comes with a European 2 pin plug as standard.
Summary: First things first, the most important part of this review is to WARN all UK purchasers that you will need a Europe to UK plug adapter as the lead is a two prong, circular plug. For the price I was quite disappointed that there was not a UK adapter included with the docking station. Also, it may be because I only received the item today and haven't given it the "warming up" period that is advised, but there is a lag when using the touch sensitive buttons or remote and...
