If you’re looking for the perfect summer patio gadget, or a little way to spice up a pool party, a Bluetooth speaker is a must. Even better? A splash proof Bluetooth speaker… because who wants to have to worry about their tech getting wet?
I was sent this little speaker made by ThumbsUp! to try and I was actually pretty impressed with it. It’s super lightweight and I like that it comes with a rubber strap for easy transporting. There is no need to worry about cords or tripping over wires either… This baby has a built in rechargeable battery. All you do to charge it is plug it into a USB port and then grab it and go when it’s finished. It lasts up to 5 hours on a charge.
Pairing it with my iPod was quick and painless too. I just turned it on, visited my Bluetooth settings and it connected instantly.
You’ll notice there is a phone button on the top as well. That’s because you can even take calls with this thing! It has a built in microphone. Imagine how convenient that could be if you’re soaking in the pool and don’t want to get your phone all wet if a call comes in.
The sound quality is actually pretty awesome for this tiny device. It is crisp and clear and I was actually quite surprised when I turned it on for the first time. The volume can go up nice and high and you don’t lose any quality.
Of course, the main feature is that the ThumbsUp! speaker is splashproof, so you can feel at ease taking it to the pool, the shower, or even while washing dishes in the kitchen (I know I’m not the only one who likes to sing and dance in the kitchen…).
If you’re interested in grabbing one of these for yourself or as a perfect pool party gift, you can get one in the UK here, or on Amazon here. I know this gadget is going to be making many appearances in my backyard this year.
