Price is pretty good, speaker weighs 7 pounds not 12. I couldn’t find the internal battery capacity online. Big minus for me is absence of a 3.5mm AUX input port (it is bluetooth only) since I still use wired-only devices and I generally prefer wired to bluetooth. Also I don’t like stuff with sealed internal batteries.
There is an even bigger (like 2x as big and expensive) XXL version which claims to have 15,600 mah internal battery which I’d guess is 6x 18650’s at 2600 mah each. Don’t know about this smaller version.
I think if I ever decide to get a large bluetooth speaker I’d get one made by a power tool company like Milwaukee Tool. They go on promo at Home Depot all the time, and they run on easily swappable cordless tool battery packs. Another possibility is to hack up my old boom box to have bluetooth input.
