@Kevfin and even then, it wouldn’t be worth it! (To either your wallet, or your gut, or your ears.) Seriously, we’ve passed “peak bluetooth speaker” territory, I figure we’re headed for implantables soon.
@RedOak this is why I had to go back and qualify my statement with “that sounds better than an echo dot”. I thought back through some of the more questionable speakers I have had, mostly from the fine folks at Meh if I’m honest.
Damn it I now have way more Bluetooth speakers than I do Bluetooth devices to connect to the speakers.Also sadly, I purchased 2 then see they are only rated at 10 watts. Wanted to use them on my deck. At least these won’t be so loud as to break my lease or disturb my neighbors.
( Nasally-jaded-reason ) I went ahead and pulled the trigger on two of these after reading the Amazon reviews, I needed something portable for outside that could handle a few raindrops. And besides a few people that didn’t like the voice commands on the speakers or one reviewer that had an issue with them staying charged up The rest of the review were’s gave them 4 or 5 stars so I’m in…
Got mine today. Been charging for 10 hours and red light still on (indicating battery not fully charged yet). Anyone else experience this? This speaker is getting promptly returned if I need to charge it 10+ hours every time!
@gtjay I was out of town so mine has been at the post office for two weeks. Finally picked it up today and can confirm it’s taking forever to charge. I had it plugged in for 4 hours and it still said low battery after I turned it on. Light is solid red charging the entire time.
According to the manual it should turn off when it’s done charging.
At 2200(?) mAh, the included 1.8A charger should have it good to go easily within 2 hours… I tried looking around my apartment for other 12v center positive power supplies, but haven’t had luck finding any that fit.
How has your experience been in the 10 days since your post here?
@daronspence at some point overnight it reached full charge. Ive used it a couple of times for a total of 2 - 4 hours and am very pleased with its performance, but i havent had to charge it again yet. We’ll see. As much as i like it, I’m not going to keep it if it takes 18 hours to charge every time!
