Fully useful solar charging and really good sound!
14 September 2015
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: 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'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.
Summary: It has a sturdy feel. It sounds really good for its smaller speakers. And if your smartphone has an equalizer, you can make it sound even better. As a gadget guy I feel compelled to wonder why they didnt add a condenser microphone to also dual as a bluetooth speaker-phone when paired to a...
Summary: The battery charges pretty slowly off of solar, and you can't have it plugged in to charge while also charging a device from it. The speakers are pretty good quality for the price, and it does have a fairly rugged feel. The bluetooth works very well
Summary: I'd give it 5 stars if the case didn't get so hot. It, obviously, needs sunlight since it's solar-powered, but it does get hot because of the black case. Otherwise, the sound is good, and we find it very durable. It does what we want it to do.
