Summary: Damn I wish this thing was waterproof! Got this for tunes on my girlfriend's kayak. We charged this thing once when we got it out of the box and never had to again. The solar kept it going the entire summer.
Fully useful solar charging and really good sound!

Summary: First let me say that this is a 5 month review. Any reviews out of the box are not reviews. I specifically purchased this because of its solar panel and was skeptical. Lets talk battery life; which is amazing and would get 5 stars. I charged this when first purchased via the cable provided.
Summary: Item came in on time and had the thing working perfectly out of the box until I had it outside my shower while I was using it for music. It barely got wet and all of a sudden there's water between the solar panel and the plastic cover that seals the top.
Summary: It's a ok Bluetooth portable speaker, but for the price it was a little too much. The sound Quality is so so. I was expecting way more from the product and the price I was pay but there was no big difference. The bass was not at all what I was hoping for for a 22w speaker I guess I was too hopefull.
Summary: True to its name - this thing is rugged. I have brought it around the world for over a year and a half and have only charged it a single time (disclaimer: I spent most time in sun-heavy areas). What it lacks in volume it makes up with slimness and durability.
Summary: I bought this for my car and backpacking/camping trips, and I'm pleased with my purchase. It doesn't have great sound, but it's good enough. The mids and treble sound good, bass leaves something to be desired.

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 loved this product when I first bought it. I took it camping a bunch of times a held up well and probably averaged about 4-5 hours of playtime. The second summer I had it I noticed the battery didn't hold a charge whether I charged it using a outlet or the sun.
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) ....
