It floats. It plays music. Just not at the same time. Thought it would be cool to float in the pool and play music. But it flips and plays music into the water so you can’t hear it. Did anyone even test this product?!

I bought this speaker bc it’s advertised as a floatable speaker, water proof and holds a charge for 12 hours. It floats upside down with the speaker part underwater, so you can’t hear it. It does not hold a charge. The first time I used it it lasted an hour before it died. I recharged it overnight and lasted 15 minutes the next day before dying completely. I was super excited to receive this speaker and I was severely disappointed with this speaker.

COMPLETE HEADACHE

1 out of 5 stars
Maeve - 1 year ago
I brought this speaker back in March for my husband's birthday with the extended warranty by Allstate Protection Plans. The speaker stopped working in June. We filed a claim and shipped the speaker to manufacturer for replacement in July. We called the manufacturer end of August to figure out where are new speaker was and they told us it's already been shipped and we should receive it in a week or so. Today is October 4th and we still have not received the replacement speaker!!!! Worst part about this is I don't even see our claim listed in Allstate AND Target has these speakers stocked in the store a mile from my house. Dealing with Target, Allstate and the manufacturing company has been a complete headache and extremely disappointed Target has done absolutely nothing considering they sold me this speaker and pointless warranty.

Thought it would be much louder than it is by the reviews I have read. And the battery definitely does not last as long as what it states, maximum of maybe 3 hours if that of non stop playing , not even close to the six hours it says and any back ground noise ie someone swimming etc you can not hear the music over it, sorry to say but this is getting returned to the store

Battery Disappointment

justabill - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
Charge lasts 3.5 hours. I love the sound and portability, but I do a 6 hour podcast each week and the battery life falls way short of the 12 hours they state. you cannot charge while using either. rendering this useless for my intention. not even long enough for a pool party. I had planned to buy several and link them. oh well. lesson learned. Take my business to another brand. I previously praised the product because the first night I made it through my show. since then, 3.5 hour charge trying an additional 2 times.

Battery is awful.

2 out of 5 stars
ccc20 - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
I had the Altec Mini Lifejacket 2 for something like 6 years. It was hands down the best portable speaker I ever owned. I bought this one once the mini started having connection issues and the charging port broke off. At first this speaker is just as good. I think the sound quality is nearly as good as the mini lifejacket, but this speaker really lacks low end. The lights are a fun bonus and the beat match works surprisingly well. However, I can not rate this above 2 stars because the battery life on the device is god awful. The life jacket would last me for weeks without a charge. I would take it to the beach and it would last me all day long, and usually the next day too if I forgot to charge it. It also timed out and would turn itself off saving battery. This speaker does not. I have been charging this almost daily at this point and I don’t use it any more than I used the mini lifejacket. If I had to guess I would say a full charge gets me 4-5 hours with the lights on and 6-7 with them off. The speaker also does not warn you when the battery is low. It speaker just turns off in the middle of a song leaving you wondering if your internet stalled or the battery died. Worse still, it takes anywhere from 4-6 hours (at least) for the battery to charge. Altec makes great speakers but this one is severely disappointing. Sound quality: 7/10 Bluetooth connectivity: 9/10 Battery: 2/10 Looks: 6/10
