    Amazing sound from a tough little device!

    The sound is great for a small room or even an outdoor area. Connecting to it from any phone is a snap and it stays connected. The clear box it comes in is a bit tricky to open, but it's pretty darn tough and works great for storage if you want to toss the whole unit in a truck storage box. I "drop tested" the speaker accidently getting it out of the box before I even got to use the thing and there is absolutely zero evidence I did (short of me just stating it in a review...this is anonymous right?:) ). For real it's tough and sound is quite amazing for a tiny device. Oh, the Qi charging is also quite nice if you have a capable phone. If not, it does have a USB out for keeping the phone topped off. I've connected it to google home and that works great as well...far better sound than the speaker in the GH, and no noticeable delay or lag which is nice.

    Santa Clause purchased this for my 19 yr old daughter and had compared several units in the store for sound, features, price and this seemed to be the best option. Until we got it operating at home we did not know how well this unit actually works. We are very pleased with sound quality, volume, etc... I am normally a Bose buyer but VERY glad that I went with the Altec Lansing compared to all other brands and models at Best Buy.

    I like the fact that it's water proof, rugged, for the price you pay is pretty decent. But the one thing is I wish the Bluetooth should be better! I can go no further then maybe 10 feet without cutting out. Even though it's range is 30 feet. But I guess it's ok but it could be better. But I do injoy the quality of the sound. Sound pretty good, bass is decent. But all in all I would recommend it.

    We really liked it, Sound quality was good. We didn't get a chance to test out the length of usage. We decided it was just too much money for what it is. Now, it could charge your phone by just sitting it on top which was the impulse selling feature, but if you crank it up too loud your phone vibrates right off.

    I bought one great range about 100 ft sounds great great wireless charging. Battery only last about 6 hrs on full charge. I took it back to exchange for another one. The second one stayed charged for 6 hrs had phone in my pocket and the music was going in and out. I thought it was my phone so someone else used theirs. Same problem.

    Decent volume, but that's the only good...

    This can get up to a decent volume, but it has noticeable distortion issues and doesn't hold charges very well. I charged this up one week and used for 8 hours over the space of 2 weeks. Then on one Monday, I get an hour out of it before the power button flashes signaling the battery is low. I cannot recommend this based on these issues.

    I drive for a living. The truck that I use every day, doesn't have a radio. I use the Altec Lansing - BoomJacket Jolt Speaker to play music, listen to the radio from my phone. The Altec has no issue over coming the engine or exhaust. It's held up well setting on the dash and getting banged around a few times.

    I love this speaker. It very loud and durable. I can take it anywhere without worry of it going to break easily. If I forget my charger it has a wireless charge available. It doesn't feel cheaply made. The only thing is that it does have some weight to it but besides that I don't have any other issues.

    Mounted on my ATV and rode the HMT. Mount looks frail but it held up. I sometimes stored the speaker in the front box and it got beaten up pretty Good and was doused with water often and still played like a champ. Not as loud as I would have liked so 4 stars

    This product offers major sound in a compact package. The NFC pairing makes it easy to connect to my phone. The only downside is it has limited range. It has to be within about 5 feet of my phone to maintain the audio signal. I use it with a Google pixel XL.

    I always admired the Altec Bluetooth speakers via in-store displays over the years, but this unit kept cutting out while less than ten feet from the source. I would recommend looking elsewhere, perhaps at Ultimate Ears models of a similar price point.

    Great sounding speaker. Looks durable. Speakers cuts out within 10 feet of blocking the device with your body. I've owned 4 other brands and have never experienced this. My $10 speaker has better Bluetooth connectivity than this. Too much money considering Bluetooth sucks.

    I loved the 1st generation, but I had problems with the charging. So I Bought this new style, and I love the new style and charging pad! I can charge my iPhone X on it the only thing is it falls off sometimes and you can not charge with a case on. the new Battery life is not so good, but I love it.

    It is very loud for such a small speaker. It is a little pricey but it’s worth it. I use it in a construction zone and it has been through several drops , dust, water, paint, and it’s still going. I would recommend it for its portability, longativity, and loudness.

    Sound is pretty good. The charge function is great. Just lay your phone on top and it charges the phone. Doesn’t work if you have anything on the back of the phone. Like a pop socket or some other finger holder

    This product only has a 10 ft bluetooth range I can't even take it into the next room. Which makes the water proof feature useless you have you phone right next to it. Sound is good I would give it a 5 star rating if bluetooth worked.

    I purchased the speaker to go camping with. Everything works great sounds amazing. The only downfall is the Bluetooth starts to fade out and get choppy when you walk away with your phone. At about 10' it starts to lose its signal and fades out.

    This is a great wireless speaker for the price, the sound is very rich for such a small speaker. Love the bass, and the fact that its waterproof so it great for the beach or pool. You won't be disappointed.

    I got this on sale and did a lot of research before buying it, and I must say it was a great purchase. Perfect size, great sound, and the coolest thing is it will charge your wireless phone.
