This thing is very small and portable, but provides big sound and battery life that lasts all day. I don't know how they fit so much quality into such a small housing. I also love how durable it is. This thing is made for the outdoors and can withstand trips to the beach or practically anywhere else you decide to go. I found out about this speaker when I was looking up "best bluetooth speaker for the money" and this one was ranked in the top 5. Very glad I did some research before making a purchase.
