Despite some positive reviews, for about £15 on Amazon I was quite prepared to be lobbing this thing into the bin.

I was unnecessarily pessimistic.

If anyone is looking for a mini Bluetooth speaker to take away on the bike, you could do worse. No wall shaking bass but for some noise that is better than the speaker on many iPhones, it’s maybe worth a punt.

Give it a go.

Don’t like it? You’ll probably sell it on here for a tenner.

PS I see they now do an updated version that will take an SD card of music, which can also be paired with a sister speaker for stereo. It’s not something that I want to do when away for a few days, nor do I have any music on SD cards, but some might.
