When I think of rugged in regards to a piece of technology, I think of products that can easily stand up to everyday wear and tear. I also think of something that I can use poolside without having to worry about water ruining my good time.
Now, something that’s waterproof, dirtproof, snowproof, and can even float in water? Altec Lansing really outdid themself with a portable speaker that can stand up to all this. The Altec Lansing Mini LifeJacket Jolt Rugged Bluetooth Speaker is the perfect companion for every girl who loves the great outdoors, and here’s why.
First things first, you know I’m all about fine design, and the Altec Lansing Mini LifeJacket Jolt Rugged Bluetooth Speaker doesn’t disappoint in this department. This one in particular that I had the opportunity to review sports a brilliant blue exterior and a cool grey speaker, making for one beautiful color pairing.
When I took it out of the packaging, I was surprised with how soft and smooth the exterior rubber material was. It’s small enough that you can easily pick it up with one hand and the rubber exterior gives you a great grip so you can easily carry it around or move it without having to worry about it slipping right out of your hands.
Also in regards to the size, the dimensions are perfect for easily putting this in your bag and bringing it with you anywhere you go, and that’s definitely something I appreciate with my tech products: the portability.
The Altec Lansing Mini LifeJacket Jolt Rugged Bluetooth Speaker even has a built in smart phone charger; a micro USB cable and charging port. Pretty neat feature!
Another neat feature is “Just Ask”, which lets you use Google Voice Assistant or Siri through your phone via Bluetooth.
As far as usability, it’s quick and simple to set up and pair with your phone in order to stream your favorite music. Although I only have one of these speakers and couldn’t test this feature, you can connect this to another one to play your music on multiple speakers, which is called the House Party feature.
The sound quality is absolutely excellent and this speaker really packs a punch! The volume gets pretty loud as well, so you will have no problem hearing it wherever you are.
The battery life is good for up to 16 hours and the wireless range is approximately 100 feet.
So far, I’ve taken the Altec Lansing Mini LifeJacket Jolt Rugged Bluetooth Speaker outside in the snow with me and to the barn to use while I ride my horses (that’s basically dirt city) and it truly isn’t bothered by snow or dirt! Aside from being snowproof and dirtproof, it’s also waterproof and as long as you close up the port cover, you can even submerge it.
I have dropped this in the bathtub and was surprised to see that it does indeed float. I can’t wait to use it in my pool this summer and I’ll be sure to update you on how that goes!
I highly recommend you pick up an Altec Lansing Mini LifeJacket Jolt Rugged Bluetooth Speaker for yourself. It’s the perfect tech pairing for every outdoorsy girl or girl on the go, and you’ll certainly get a lot of use out of it!
