In this review I slightly different piece of Gear from my items I normally review, but as you guys are aware I do like my outdoors gear and I do like entering competitions and for once the two came together and paid off! :) I was lucky enough to win a Divoom Voombox Travel Outdoor Bluetooth Speaker from the kind folks at +Maplin Electronics Ltd and this is my review.
Ok so first of the Speaker is about the size of a large donut,health and safety warning do not try to eat it! as would be very bad for your health and I doubt it would be very tasty...the speaker has a robust loop you can attach to your gear the loop is a Karabiner type so can be snapped onto bag straps etc
The speaker has 4 buttons Power and Call Buttons and Volume Up/Down (if held down these skip a track forwards or backwards), power is micro USB so easy to connect up.
Set up is quick and easy standard Bluetooth hold till light flashes and find with your music device.
The volume is impressive and as the speaker is double sided to provide a separate Bass you really get a lot from a small unit, power will hold for up to 6 hours use from a full charge too.
I tried the Speaker connected to a phone and a Laptop and the sound quality was impressive from both, the clip is a great idea too as makes the speaker more versatile in using outdoors. final note is build quality this speaker is really meant for outdoors and that shows in its build its the most solid outdoor speaker I've seen and used, so great as an indoor speaker for us clumsy types too!
price is £39.99 at Maplin at the moment and although mine was a prize must admit if I lost it I would replace with same unit out my own pocket.
thanks for reading
