Summary: If the battery worked, it would be a nice speaker. Also you may be able to find a longer power cord if you shop around.
Pros: sound quality is good, as long as volume is not excessive.
Cons: The speaker is supposed to charge and then play without being plugged in. That part was dead on arrival. After charging and the full charge light coming on it still won't play without being plugged in. Ok, no problem, except the power cord that plugs into a USB slot is literally 3 inches long. An...
which looks just like this one but costs a bit more ($38) is ...

Summary: It worked really well at home but when I took it on my trip to Cuba, it stopped working (maybe the heat was too much?) and then it starting skipping? All in all, I was really dissapointed because I bought it specifically for that trip to use on the beach.
Summary: Great little speaker...while it worked. I have had to return 2 of them now as they both stopped, after a week or so, in the middle of play. The 2nd one has lasted less than a week. Such a shame because i was really liking it, the sound, volume, colour etc are fab..
Summary: I love these little music boxes. The music sounds great, the size is perfect, they look dinky, but..... they always seem to break at the cable. If you do get one assume it won't last more than a year, and don't squish the cable back into the bottom in the grove.
Summary: would be a great little speaker since it is LOUD and extremely portable, everyone was surprised how this huge volume can come from this tiny thing!!! loved it till i put it down on the table! but bass only comes up when you open it up and it vibrates, otherwise sound is flat.
Summary: I received this product in early September. In less than two months, this speaker is now dead and I hardly use it. I did question the product as it is not what it is described - the wire is not contractable or extentable, it is fixed and too short, so it leaves little option to place the speaker...
Summary: Was great for a couple months, really loved the size and sound. But the insulating layer over the wire and the wire have broken away so connection is bust... such a shame. I had the older version of this product for years with no problems!
Summary: The overall design I have to say is good. Sound and bass was not as other reviews lead me to believe. The sound quality on my laptop was the same with or without this speaker. Only difference is, I still have sound on my laptop whereas the speaker stopped working after 2 days use.
Summary: I purchased one of these just over a year ago and at the time I was reasonably impressed with the quality of the item I now have a speaker that is falling apart. The outer insulation on the lead has parted and the conductors are visible through the second layer of insulation.
