        Bose will never tell you specs. Mostly because they are overhyped and under deliver. If they listed specifications no one would pay their prices.

          Yes, each weekend we take the speaker outside to the back yard porch. If I'm using my Mac Book as the audio source, I leave the Mac in the kitchen and speaker out side. It works great in the garage. I say if you keep it from getting wet, there are no problems I see.

            I took mine back for that reason. I could never get consistent sound. At times it would be good, then other times it would be too low. Bose says its designed as a personal speaker. I have a portable radio that's 10 years old that has better volume. Sound isn't as good. The Bose speaker does have good sound, lacks volumes.

              Answer

              Thanks for your question. The SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile III speaker is our best performing Bluetooth system. It pairs easily with a smartphone, tablet or another Bluetooth device and is great for portability. While it does provide a big performance for a speaker of its size and could sound great in your large room, it may not be the best choice as a designated sound system for that space. If you’re looking for a device to use as a primary music system for your large open concept area, a SoundTouch 20 or 30 WiFi enabled system would be a better option. A SoundTouch system would connect to your home WiFi network and access music from music services such as Internet radio, Pandora, Spotify, Deezer, and iHeartRadio. They allow for easy control via the IR remote or SoundTouch app for computer, smartphone or tablet. Multi-room listening is also possible by adding additional SoundTouch systems. We hope this helps!

              Answer

              It has a, I think it's called a Pc-15 jack? Basically you can Bluetooth a connection or use an auxiliary cable (like a headphone size plug in) some TVs have those. My LED TV has that size of a jack so I could (not tried) to use Bose as the output speaker. IF the TV has Bluetooth capability it might be able to push sound wirelessly but most TVs are designed to receive versus send.

                this has the 100-240 converter-type charger. The only thing you should need would be an adapter plug, if different from the US plugs.

                  We're glad you asked. At a medium volume level and starting with a full charge the battery will last for up to 14 hours. The charge time for a full charge is approximately 3 hours.

                  Answer

                  We are glad you asked. You may connect your iPad via Bluetooth or the AUX input. By using the AUX input you'll be assured that there will be no interference while you're listening to your music. You should be able to choose the audio output on your iPad so that you'll be able to enjoy your music through the Bose speaker.
