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: 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 used this item through about a dozen battery charge cycles. I take it with me camping and on my canoe day trips, and have found two shortcomings related to battery charging. It will not fully charge via the solar panel.
Summary: Fairly happy with the ruckus. Solar aspect of it works very well. Often that is the weak part of these products. My problem was that the charging port broke after about 40 uses. The Micro USB jack broke and was pushed inside the ruckus and it can't be charged anymore except by solar.
Summary: Listen... I'm not trying to impress (or annoy) my neighbors with my amazing 80's rock collection, but at the same time, I would like to hear it myself. This has proved challenging at times even in everyday circumstances. Sitting alone in your backyard and looking to enjoy hours of wireless music?
Summary: The instructions to set-up and sync are not detailed.. you are on your own. I have an electronic background and i managed to get it to work.. the sound from the unit is crisp and clear. The volume level is more than adequate. The wi-fi range is very limited.
Summary: I bought this unit to pair with my Galaxy S4. While my Galaxy's bluetooth does recognize the speaker system, no sound comes from the Rukus. However, since it does work when I connect with an aux. cable, I decided to keep the speaker system.
