    I bought this Bluetooth speaker November 2017 for a Christmas present and have used it almost daily for about 17 months. The first time I heard it, I was surprised how loud it was and how well it sounded. Since then, we show everyone that will listen! The battery lasts about 8 hours if used continuously on 3/4 volume. It has been dropped many times and has gone everywhere with us. We use it on our boat in the summer and on the four wheeler in the spring and fall. It has been tested (accidentally) and it is waterproof ,mud proof . We love that you can pair a few speakers at the same time for bigger events. Because we love this speaker so much, we are buying another one to have. Thank you Altec for making such a good quality and durable speaker!!!

    I have had a few Bluetooth speakers and I was looking for a waterproof one for cottage time. The sound on this one is not great. Also, I had the unit for just over one year, only used a few times and it no longer holds a charge. I have seen this same review on a few other review sites. Contacted Altec Lansing and they noted that it was over one year and therefore the warranty no longer applies.


  • Honest review best purchase !!!

Battery life is amazing on this thing. best bang for your buck.
