Summary: This speaker works very well overall. However, the phone charging function is not great because it drains faster than it changes my phone so you can't get a full charge out of it. I left my phone connected to it while it was sitting in direct sun on my car dash.
Summary: I've really enjoyed having this. I've not used the charging port to charge my phone much, but I've never had to use a power cord to charge the speaker at all. Even with continuous usage, as long as I'm outside and keep the speaker in the sun, it seems to charge fast enough to keep up with the...
Summary: 4 stars only because it's a lot smaller then I thought......but I grown to love it I can carry it with ease clipped on to my pack and / or set it down in semi direct to direct Sun light in between climbs. ( I use it to entertain a lonely belay person/ and aproaches) ....
Awesome, portable, useful. If you're in a place where solar charging is necessary, people won't appreciate music.

Summary: It does what it does well. The only downside is a social one: if you're in a place where solar charging is necessary, people aren't going to want to hear music. All my camping friends said they were embarrassed for me. Or, I think they said that because I couldn't hear them over my rocking out.
Great sound, great battery life and overall perfect.

Summary: Got this a few months ago and had used it a few times for small events or in the back yard for a few hours, and it always worked, but I felt it was never tested. This past weekend, I spent a day on the Mississippi river on the sand bars and this thing really came through.
Ideal for beach or poolside - keep your phone and the speaker charged all day

Summary: FANTASTIC device. Good quality speaker for the size. It is very convenient. It was exactly the size I expected and wanted. I wanted a speaker that was loud enough to hear it from within a 10-12 foot radius and this is that loud. I play it with my Galaxy S6 edge with the phone volume on high.
Summary: Does exactly what I needed it to- stay charged for a beach or pool day. Very durable. My brother bought one before me, and it was fantastic for his boat. It is loud enough to be able to enjoy it around a beach crowd.
Summary: I use a Samsung mp3 player to listen to audiobooks while driving. Some books are not loud enough just using the mp3 player built in speakers. I charged the Eton rukus using the power adapter from my Samsung with the USB cord rec'd with the rukus.
Great solar powered device, just very directional with sound

Summary: I know a lot of reviews say this, but its still smaller than I expected. With that being said everyone is always amazed at the sound that comes out of it. It's very directional so not always the perfect choice but works great on the lake.
