The speaker features two 5 watt speaker drivers designed to give you good sound indoors or out. The battery offers up to 30 hours of playtime, and you get Bluetooth 4.1 with a range of 33 feet. You can also use the speaker to deal with phone calls, thanks to a built-in microphone. The SoundTank is splash-proof as well, so it’ll stand up to a little punishment at the lake or beach this summer.
We reviewed the Aukey SK-M12 last summer and liked it a lot. This portable speaker is clear and loud, and it pushes out a decent amount of bass, too. It also has quick Bluetooth pairing (a rarity), and a threaded mount that lets you put it in all kinds of places. It doesn’t come with any kind of mounting hardware, though, so you’ll need to do some extra shopping for hardware to place it on a bike or something similar.
