    Amazing speaker. The bass is deep but not overpowering. Very little distortion maxing out the volume. The speaker can be very loud if you want to. I can have the volume at 60% on my phone and have it comfortably wash out every sound in my environment. The bluetooth range is also exceptional, I can walk a good distance away from it and not have it cut out, though I’ve never walked further than 20yds away from it. The battery life is ridiculous, I use it about 6 hours a day every day. I used it for 3 days straight without a recharge and it was still good to go. I’d recommend it to anyone.

    I was a little dissapointed with this purchase. $150 is a lot of money to spend on a speaker but I went ahead and bought it. I bought it to place on a fourwheeler so I could listen to music as I rode. I knew I was taking a chance with a speaker of this size and quality to be able to hear it over the engine. I had my doubts but I figured "Oh well, at least I can still use the speaker for other things." Well, the speaker has been in the mud and in water and has gotten a little hot from sitting on the fourwheeler. It sounds like crap now (muffled noises.) I bought a 3 year warranty but I have a feeling that it means nothing. Im not much of a complainer so I was just like "Oh well, muffled music while washing the dishes in no biggie." However, the cheap charger completely bent where it is supposed to insert into the speaker. Again, No biggie I thought to myself. EXCEPT, no other android charger will work because the case is so thick you need a charger where the metal piece is supposed to go in. SO I have spent a lot of money for chargers for this stupid thing but they are all not long enough to get past the thick rubber case and actually go in the speaker and charge it. I wish I never bought this thing. I am only giving it 2 stars because it is a loud speaker if you want to just listen to jams in the house or maybe do a little yard work in it.

    Very happy with this speaker. Use it frequently, even by the pool. Good battery life and great bluetooth range. Quality buy.

  4. Guninstructor (verified owner)

    I have two of these, they work well. I have dual audio Bluetooth on my phone and can broadcast to both at once, it works. Both units occasionally have trouble connecting to my phone. Not sure if it is my phone or not, but I don’t usually have problems connecting to things via Bluetooth. This is the only reason for 4 stars, otherwise they work well, sound good, are definitely waterproof, and the batteries last all day.

    This is my second life jacket 2. The first one died after 2 years of minimal use. So I bought a 2nd one; it’s defective ( brand new out of the box )! JUNK!!!

  6. Alan (verified owner)

    Its very loud loude than i thougt it be for its size i can hear it clear from one side of the house to other, easy to pair and definitely waterproof. Forgot it with spekers facing up to the ceiling in bathroom for like 3 day i didnt use it when i did i flipped it right side up and water came pouring out turned it on and worked fine and had it for almost 3 weeks only charged once but ony use acouple min at a time while in shower.

    December 2018 I bought 2 IMW577 four days apart from Amazon.
    I can pair either by itself to my phone. But only the first one is capable of stereo pairing.
    Details:
    The first order I received MID 2390918. According to the instructions, it does stereo pairing.
    When I follow the instructions for stereo pairing, it will look for the second speaker.

    The second order I received MID 2390718. The instructions to not mention stereo pairing.
    I can not find an update the firmware on the second one so that it will do stereo pairing.
    Maybe there is no update.

    I bought the second speaker to run in stereo.
    Though I bought it with the buy again Amazon button, it is not the same MID number.
    If there is not a firmware update for the MID 2390718 to enable stereo pairing, then I will try to trade my MID 2390718 for a MID 2390918.

    Unbelievable sound. I don’t know much about speakers, but my ears know what they like: full, round, rich, sound that makes you feel like you are in the middle of the band of orchestra. I bought two of these as gifts for Christmas and each recipient was thrilled with the sound. I decided to buy one for myself, but the price went up from the sale price of $49.95 to almost a hundred dollars. I’ll just keep my eye on this product and hope for another sale! I can hardly wait.

  9. Amanda Ricketts (verified owner)

    I hate to give 1 star but if it breaks and is unusable… I didn’t have it long.. maybe 3 or 4 months. The charge would last all day… 8 hours at least… listening at almost full volume. Good speaker… if it charged. It plugs in nice and tight.. so no, I didn’t ream the plug and I have tried different chords…. something inside must have gave way.
    I would give it a 5 star if it didn’t break.

  10. Kris (verified owner)

    Bought this for my son in law for Christmas. I have had mine going on 2 years. The sound is great and so is the battery life. Mine has fallen into the swimming pool, left out in the rain without any harm done.

  11. Mike (verified owner)

    Worked inconsistently out of the box. Called amazon tech support who connected with manufacturer service. They wanted me to send it in for refurbishing and wit for them to repair. Returned and bought JBL charge 3 very satisfied with it.

  12. Nathan Conner (verified owner)

    Very, very, disappointed. The unit failed in two weeks after I purchased. When I turn it on, I get the blue light that flashes and then a brief blue & red light flashing and then it turns off. I’ve repeated this at least a dozen times and it’s always the same. I want a new, not refurbished, replacement sent to me at no charge for the unit, nor shipping. This is particularly annoying as I had a model IMW478 for over two years and never had a problem, so I decided to buy this version. I was expecting to have the same experience with the IMW577, but it malfunctioned without any explanation. I can’t find anything online to help me figure out why it’s malfunctioned which is adding to my frustration. After this experience, I doubt I will ever buy, nor recommend Altec Lansing products to my friends and family.

    This item stopped working within a few months of getting it. I tried to contact the warranty department and received no response. Buyer beware.

  14. kca (verified owner)

    I purchased this thing before Christmas of 2018 (Christmas sale) with the plan to take it on the river this summer. Well, I went on a 5 hour float in an innertube with a mesh bottom. The speaker was submerged about 2/3 of the float, off and on. It never lost sound or power and was on the entire time from a full charge! It certainly floats too! Sits a little low in the water when left to wander on its own but I was satisfied. Continual audio when sumberged. I do wish it came in more brightly colored options for better visibility (although the blue and black one has pretty florescent blue) in case it got lost in the water.

    Love this thing and use it regularly in the kitchen and througout the house! Now I can add water fun into the mix!

  15. autumnyo2 (verified owner)

    Bought this because I had friends with it and thought it was worth the purchase. I could have sworn it would have gotten louder than it does though, unless I bought a different one than they have.
    Planned on using it for outdoor movie projections, not really loud enough for that.
    worth it for other things though.

  16. Cheeky Chic (verified owner)

    I bought the Altec Lansing IMW577-AB Lifejacket 2 Bluetooth Speaker specifically for our family beach vacation. We used this poolside, but didn’t have it in the water. The sound carried well in the open space. The speaker was kept in the shade at the end of the pool and could easily be heard at a 50′ distance.
    I was surprised how much we used it throughout the day. We played music while we were all cooking in the kitchen too. I’m very pleased with this purchase for on the go situations to set the mood for FUN!!!

  17. Julie Wiley (verified owner)

    I have the smaller version too, but wanted to get my Dad one for Father’s Day. He LOVES it and plays with it all the time. He was envious of mine (which is the smaller version) and so it was the perfect gift. It also arrived sooner than expected which helped out this later orderer to have it before Father’s Day. 🙂

  18. KatyC (verified owner)

    I purchased this for the pool and to take to jobsites. The battery life is awesome, and so is the durability. It could be dropped, can get wet, etc. The sound isn’t amazing, but it is well worth the price.

  19. alex folkard (verified owner)

    Bought this for my whitewater raft and I can say it is 100% waterproof. It has made it down the river all summer and in the shower since I bought it on Thanksgiving Day. The sound quality and volume are great as well. Great speaker!

  20. Staci Nash (verified owner)

    Second one we purchased. Works good. BUT,….The plug in power outlet broke AGAIN!!!! WONT CHARGE SO WORTHLESS AGAIN. GUESS IM ORDERING A NEW BETTER QUALITY BRAND!!! SAD VERY SAD. PRODUCT WASTED ONCE AGAIN.

  21. Joyce A. Schraeder (verified owner)

    Sounds great, I use it every day while I exercise and have not had to charge it yet. This is very impressive.

  22. Stephanie Corra (verified owner)

    This had lasted 6 months of almost daily use, by my special needs son. He chews on it, throws it, bangs it on the ground, turns it on and off and up and down constantly. If it can withstand that, I’m happy!! Before this one, we went through a speaker a month!

  23. Amazon Customer (verified owner)

    Love this speaker! Easy to carry in gym bag to play music while doing a basketball shoot around with my daughter. Easy to carry in bags when traveling. Very pleased with the overall sound and ease of this speaker not to mention the size shocked me when I heard the beats coming from the speaker !!

  24. Shannon (verified owner)

    Bought this as a gift for my husband. The sound is incredible! I was shocked at the quality. We have used it outside and put it in the hotub and it works perfectly. I would buy this again. Very impressed.

  25. Samantha (verified owner)

    Mine came lookin all messed up! Broken wouldnt charge. And dented missing things to keep rubber down and had somthing inside that rattled when u moved it! I was very mad ! I didnt even have it for an hour before i did a return ! I will never buy from them again idk what happend i know i bought used but damb! Thats not used thats abused and trash! Dont know what it sounded like as i couldnt turn it on or charge it!! Very very dissatisfied and disappointed!!

  26. Cameron Allen Johnson (verified owner)

    The speaker suits my needs just fine for listening to things in the shower, but every time it turns on, it shouts at me at max volume Powering on. Welcome to Altec Lansing! Like, just beep, that’s all I need. At like, half that volume, or a quarter. Even if I try to muffle it with a pillow, startup is audible from the next room.

    If you like announcing to the entire house that you’re about to listen to something, or you need to startle a bear, this is a great product. If your roomates and neighbors are deaf, it is a solid pick.

  27. Kindle Customer (verified owner)

    The product stop charging after only a couple months. They said they would send me a box, but they never did. The product wasn’t great to begin with. I guess you get what you pay for it when it’s on sale

  28. Beverly (verified owner)

    We have this in our shower and its working well. What I really like about this bluetooth speaker is its ease in pairing with more than one device.

  29. Garry Davis (verified owner)

    Excellent value for the money! Good volume, easy accessibility with Bluetooth connection, seems to be holding up well against the elements. Battery life adequate. Overall pleased with the speaker.

  30. Bob K (verified owner)

    The sound quality is really good for such a small speaker. Battery life is great! Can’t answer about water resistance, but the way it’s built, I should think it would work fine.

  31. Sharon (verified owner)

    I bought this for my teenage nephew for Christmas. I have had the same one for 5 years and it works great. Still holds charge for days, gets very loud, easy to pair with variety of equipment, and perfect size in my opinion. I have dropped it multiple times but have not had issues.

  32. Lauren Ryan (verified owner)

    I bought this as a gift for my mother and she will not stop raving about it. Its durable but lightweight and it’s not too bulky.

  33. T.P. Lee (verified owner)

    You can’t beat the sound coming from this. My only issue is the battery life ad your wireless charging your phone. Drains battery fairly quick.

  34. Kittty Litman (verified owner)

    Good sound and very convenient to use. It was originally a gift to me and I bought another for our vacation home

  35. Mike M (verified owner)

    Overall I really like this blue tooth speaker. A couple times I had problems with the connection, not sure what caused it.

    The one thing I don’t like, and I’m thinking there must be a way to fix this, the volume control is directly tied to my iPhone. In other words there is no way to separately adjust the volume to get a finer adjustment. My son has the smaller Altec Lansing speaker which does not have the controls tied in this manner so you turn volume down on speaker which allows your phone volume control more latitude.
    If anyone knows how to adjust them separately please reply to this review.

  36. JAMES A (verified owner)

    Cannot give much of a review. Recieved 2 so far brand new and NIETHER worked….. so frustrated.

  37. Susan L Byers (verified owner)

    I purchased the Altec Lansing LifeJacket 2 Bluetooth Speaker. The speaker comes with mounting hardware. The mount does not fit the speaker. That is because the mounting hardware is a standard 1/4 x 20 bolt that all speakers, cameras, etc., use. Unfortunately, the speaker has been equipped with a metric M8 x 1.0 threaded insert during the manufacturing process. This means the speaker is unmountable with the provided hardware, or any other common mounting options.

    The sound quality is good and the battery life is good. If those are the only things you are looking for in this speaker, you should be happy with this purchase.

  38. That's Mr. Grim to you (verified owner)

    I bought this for an bluetooth speaker and find myself taking advantage of the bike mount for my motorcycle, until I can get an actual sound system installed. The sound is okay and loud enough to where I can hear it well with ear plugs going 40-50 mph on my Vulcan. Above 50 mph, turn it off to save the battery, as this is advertised for motorcycles, the wind and engine easily overpower the speakers…w/o a helmet on it becomes harder to hear, at 60-70 mph, you can’t hear them. But I don’t do much highway or interstate driving so it works perfectly for the cruising I do.

    This is a good all around speaker, rode in a down pour speaker was just fine, it takes up a lot of space on the handle bar, but that is expected. Doesn’t rattle loose and stays in place even on bumpy roads and higher speeds.

  39. Jerry Johnson (verified owner)

    not worth it for the price, i bought two and not sure what i expected but whatever i expected i did not get. I got poor quality sound, poor quality bluetooth connection and a water proof speaker. Premium price dollar store quality.

  40. SherryB04 (verified owner)

    I have tried many bluetooth speakers. I’ll never try another one after this one. This is the 2and time I’ve purchased this speaker. 1 st one was years ago and is still in great shape with countless hours of use.

  41. Baclay9 (verified owner)

    I have several different sizes of this speaker in different locations. Have had a couple of them for years and they still work great. Can’t go wrong with this

  42. RM (verified owner)

    I have the H20 Jacket which is much smaller and costs much less and it’s sound quality is much better then this larger more expensive speaker. We played the same songs back to back on the H20 Jacket and the LifeJacket and each sounded significantly better on the H20. The LifeJacket is solid and heavy but sounds tinny with much less bass. Very disappointed. Returned.

  43. Mister J (verified owner)

    First off, this joker IS waterproof! But you can’t hear any music while it’s floating and spinning. It’s a unique feature that at least keeps your speaker safe from water. Now onto the speaker itself, this thing has great sound quality and it gets LOUD. However, it COULD be a little louder for my taste, but I can always buy an additional speaker and link them. The only thing I dont like about the speaker is that if you do NOT unpair your phone with this speaker, it WILL NOT pair with another phone. In other words..turning the speaker itself off does not unpair the device.

  44. Edward Anderson (verified owner)

    Purchased just over 1 year ago. Decent sound quality and volume. Never dropped, exposed to harsh environment, or pulled by cord. In use yesterday and just stopped. Tried multiple charging cables/outlets but won’t indicate taking a charge. Called Altec Lansing Support. They are sorry, but offered no assistance. I will not purchase an Altec Lansing product again.

  45. G. LaMontagne (verified owner)

    I bought Altec because my friend had one we used on the beach. The sound was great and the battery lasted more than the 3 hours we were there. I just keep mine on a charging cord when not in use. Has a USB port too!

    This item is loud and sound quality is fantastic

  47. The TROUBLESHOOTER (verified owner)

    The people who are saying this is loud either casually listen to music in a small room, or they never have ever owned a speaker!

    This speak is pathetic! Its reaches its max volume and its terrible!

    Yes its rugged and durable, but thats not what im buying this for

    If you are a person who likes your music loud

    DO NOT GET THIS

    this is good for a parent or grandparents who sit at a small table outside that play bingo

  48. Jacquie Trevino (verified owner)

    I got this speaker mostly for tubing and at the beach. I tested it in the river and it floated and is water proof, but it flips on its front or back in the water diluting the sound so it is hard to hear.

  49. Nicole M Finch (verified owner)

    This speaker was okay. I bought for my son to replace his JBL that was broken. It did not match up and had to return it. Ended up getting another JBL with in the same price range as the Altec Lansing.

  50. MstrssGrim (verified owner)

     Amazing sound from such a small speaker. It does not vibrate or sound distorted when you turn it up. It’s heavy-ish, rugged and I’m excited to have this with me in my kayak. I have had Jabre, Bose, and this out sounds the others this size. Not to mention it charges my phone and it is waterproof. Nobody can touch this little speaker!!!
    My only wish is that it had a hook for a carabiner so I can clip it to my boat. The bigger size has a handle, but this is such a good size i wouldn’t sacrifice its size and weight for a handle. It’s just something for Altec to consider

  51. Christine Korwatch (verified owner)

    Stopped working after one month. Contacted Amazon and immediately offered exchange. New one on the way. Great working with Amazon.

    I love this soeaker so much. I got it for my boyfriend for his birthday and he takes it everywhere in his back pack. Uses in the shower and we can’t wait to take it camping next year. It’s incredibly water-resistant and the sound quality beats any portable speaker we have ever owned

  53. Turner (verified owner)

    Great speaker, I had one before this one and used it regularly for five years. Lasted through beach trips and all. The only bad thing is I received a Lifejacket 1 instead of a Lifejacket 2 like I was supposed to get.

  54. Will (verified owner)

    Worth every penny I paid. They are completely water resistant and seems to be even mud resistant. I lost one in a big mud pit and found it a week later and it still worked after I charged it back up. Only wish you could link them to other speakers through Bluetooth like the others they sell.

  55. Jana E. Teston (verified owner)

    Loved the speaker the only problem is I ordered three of them one a year ago and two more within a week apart well the two I recently ordered were different one was a life jacket jolt so I figured if I ordered another it would be the same nope it was the old life jacket.

  58. Luna White 242 (verified owner)

    I got this to listen to by my pool and in my pool. I don’t have to worry about it getting splashed or forgetting to bring it inside. That’s the best I can say about it. The sound quality is not great, not awful, but my Bose speaker is definitely much better sound quality for the same price. What’s most annoying is how loud it is when you power it on. It doesn’t matter what the volume is when you turn it off as it’s super loud when you turn it back on and it blasts out Welcome to Altec.

  59. James J. (verified owner)

    Love this speaker so much that I purchased a second one. This model lights up with the music which is really cool. The other one was the same model but different color, but unfortunately didn’t have same music lights like this one. If I would have known, I would have purchased the exact same one. Great product, it even has its own nickname!

    I will be purchasing more Altec Lansing products in the future

    Before I delve into my dislike of this particular model, the lifejacket 2, let me provide some background. I’ve been using a $50 altec lansing XL soundblade for years (technically its a blackweb from walmart, just rebadged). It’s got amazing sound quality, similar speaker design to the lifejacket with 2 active drivers and a passive woofer. The soundblade has well rounded sound, with bass presence that makes all kinds of music sound full. Over the 5 years I’ve had it, ive dropped it many times and the magnet broke off the back of one of the drivers, several times now. I’ve been able to superglue it back, but now its finally hissing after the latest repair and the battery is about done. I tried some altec lansing bluetooth speakers in walmart a while back and was impressed, even the units that were smaller than the lifejacket 2, so I figured this would be a good deal – a $129.99 MSRP speaker on sale for $58. I couldnt be more wrong. It has no bass response at all, it sounds like cheap $15 computer speakers, but far more shrill, to the point of hurting my ears at (very small) room-filling volumes.

    I have another old bluetooth speaker, an iHome iBT33, which had an MSRP of $50 (but can be had for $20-30) – despite its smaller size and lack of a passive woofer, it has much better bass presence and a smoother, non-harsh sound at medium-high volumes.

    I worked in an electronics store for years which gave me a constant stream of bluetooth speakers to assess. I have to say this lifejacket 2 is pretty bad. Even if one could get past the lack of bass, the harshness of the mid-upper range is just too much to tolerate. It sounds like there is some kind of post-processing being applied to the bluetooth audio decoding, something to add a bit of reverb for a fake surround effect or to give the impression of a larger speaker. It just sounds terrible. I checked the directions to see if there was some post-processing effect that could be turned off, or different EQ settings, there are none. It sounds marginally better and less harsh with a wired 3.5mm connection to my LG V35 with a quad dac.

    Item was defective out of box. Wouldn’t hold charge. Possible rare defect. Awaiting refund.

  65. Hiram (verified owner)

    Works great! Better than it’s predecessor so I’m guessing they’ve improved on the design.

    Nice little speaker and is definitely water resistant. Not made to actually go IN the water although it does float, it rolls with speakers facing down into the water.

  67. Kristen K (verified owner)

    The speaker is great, first time using the mount it snapped off and broke, I bought another one and the same thing happened. Do not buy this speaker to mount on bicycle, ATV’s, or even a jogging stroller. The mount is garbage

  68. Amazon Customer (verified owner)

    I bought this for a trip I have coming up to FL because the other reviews raved about battery life and water resistance. My cousin has one and said it once floated all the way down the river from him while kayaking and never stopped playing music! I was very impressed with the sound quality already and the attachment hook to hang from a bicycle bar, shower rod, or pole on a boat is GREAT! I have not been able to personally test the water resistance yet, but will repost when I do!

  69. cp (verified owner)

    I bought this speaker for my old Jeep that does not have a radio. Wanted to use it with my phone. Needed something waterproof. Came with a mounting bracket that allowed me to mount inside the Jeep cab. Excellent sound quality and volume. The battery life is extremely good. This is a nice, heavy, well made piece of equipment. I recommend this to anyone. I am listening to it as I type this review. The speaker is absolutely wonderful.

  70. Chester (verified owner)

    This is my second lifejacket the first one lasted 5years then I broke the charging port. These are great for outdoor parties I’ve left it out overnight many times in the rain with no issue and the sound is as good as my friends Bose

  71. D Coyle (verified owner)

    We use this outside at tennis drills and it is loud enough. Only con is trying to figure out how to mute/unmute or skip/replay as it doesn’t have separate buttons. Haven’t used it in or near water so can’t speak to water resistance. So far love this speaker.

  72. Weston D. (verified owner)

    Use it at work as a mechanic. It gets dirty, dropped, and some occasional water and other chemicals thrown it’s way, and it doesn’t care. Take care of it, and it’ll last a good long time.

    I like this brand for its versatility – mostly in portability and being protective from water. I can take it outside to do work, or go out to the pool with friends.

    I bought this as a replacement for my great aunt’s alexa device. We could not get the alexa to just be a bluetooth speaker. She was so happy with it she takes it everywhere and said I listen to my charlie pride all day long what more could this old lady want!

    I love this speaker. I put it in my beach bag every time I go to the beach. It has great sound .

    This thing sucks. It is my second Altec Lansing waterproof speaker that just shuts off right after powering on. I always fully charge them, then I get on the river & boom, no power. The sound is great but not if it doesn’t work.

    Love this speaker. It replaced my previous one the dogs thought was a toy!

    The product arrived non functional. The customer service department said I would need to purchase a specialized box as well as a printer in order to return the speaker for repair/ replace. It will cost more for the return than it would to just buy a different speaker. I got this one to replace the other lifejacket speaker that stopped working.
    DO NOT BUY ALTEC LANSING products.

    I bought this speaker for using outside while swimming. My phone says you need to have the app to connect to the speaker, I’ve downloaded the app and I cannt find this specific speaker on it. I haven’t been able to connect it at all to my phone, but my husband is able to connect without the app and It works. I wrote an email to the company trying to see if there was something I was doing wrong and never heard back. I just want to be able to us this speaker. We have 2 of the H2O minis and love them. But this has caused me a lot of frustration and for the price it upsets me even more that it’s not pairing with anyone’s phone besides my husband’s. I gave it a one simply for the fact I cannt connect to anything but 1 phone. The sound and everything else is amazing when it’s working through my husbands phone.

    We use this outside when grilling with friends/family, and took it to the beach. The battery lasted for the 4 hours we were there, and probably would have run a lot longer if we hadn’t turned it off.

    Solid weight and sturdiness. Very strong sound. Only knock is that the blue tooth connection is weaker than the Bose Soundlink we previously owned but all in all we’re more satisfied with the Altec.

    This is our 3rd Altec Lansing speaker! They last a long time and are worth the money!

    I’m not into speakers. I just know what I like. This little speaker sounds good to my ears. No fuzzy sounds and the volume is good for what I use it for. The charging cord is a little difficult and you have to line it up just right or I feel like it might break. I think that’s the only downside that I have noticed.

    Great sound and easy to use! Lovely color and my mom absolutely loved receiving this as a gift! I have one of these that I bought over five years ago and it is still going strong! Altec Lansing makes great products!

    So I have gone threw loads of different speakers and not a single one compares to these!! The sounds is amazing, it’s durability is fat and it’s sat outside in snow, rain, hail what ever kind of weather it’s been through and there isn’t a single scratch ding or anything wrong with it!! Stop spending so much money on speakers! These last for ever!!!

    The older model is a whole lot louder and has better base. It doesn’t pair with its predecessor, which is the whole reason I got it. If you are looking for a reliable and all around good speaker this is a good choice.

Questions and answers of the customers

  1. A No se pero el sonido es muy bueno
  2. A You cannot rewind from the Life Jacket 2. Only has On/Off and Plus or Minus volume control. At least on mine. newer models ??
  3. A Usually pressing the volume +&- keys simultaneously for at least 5 seconds will clear the Bluetooth signal, admittedly this function will sometimes fail, don’t know the reason for this issue. You may try a factory reset by accessing the switch through the center of the aux connection with a pin also. I wish you the best of luck!
  4. A We plug it in over night when the battery runs out, but I think it takes about 3 hours
  5. A It only has 1 point to attach. We use it on out center console bar on our bay boat. It take the rough riding very well.
  6. A It is like a camera mount. Screw.
  7. A It pairs easily with the Echo Dot and/or you can connect it with the RCA jack. Unfortunately, this speaker powers itself off if not used for a few minutes. This makes it completely useless with the Dot.
  8. A I would think so as it pairs easily with my I phone and also my tablet and anything with blue tooth on .
  9. A That speaker stop working 7 days after I bought it
  10. A Don’t see why not...I’ve mounted mine to a kayak and river tube, worked great and as expected. I even dropped it into Frio River, it floated and continued to play...Awesome speaker
  11. A No it’s bluetooth or aux
  12. A I’ve had mine up all the way and no problem.
  13. A When you buy this speaker, stereo pairing is a gamble.MID 2390918 does stereo pairing.MID 2390718 does not do stereo pairing.They are both IMW577, but there is no way to know which one you are going to get.I bought 2 speakers 4 days apart, and got one of each.
  14. A Never had on a boat. It is a loud speaker though. Maybe good on a pontoon.
  15. A It does have usb
  16. A When the red light turns off.That will tell you that it's fully charged.
  17. A Hi Ross, This speaker has 7.5 watts.
  18. A This is the mid size speaker! And yes, it does it come with all charging cords/plugs.
  19. A I’m not 100% sure if there is a bigger size than this one. I know there is a smaller one or two. It’s a decent size speaker, so I’d guess the regular. Sorry if this isn’t what you’re looking for.
  20. A It comes with a bracket for a bike handle but I matched a bolt to mount it to my kayak.
  21. A Yes. When the unit is fully charged, the orange light will turn off.
  22. A hold the button next to the +- buttons and the machine will say powering on
  23. A It's plenty loud. Enough to hear on a Harley. I can hear it from a distant of about 80 feet away.
  24. A I have had mine outside in about 28* and it did good. They sell a cheaper one that's like $50-67 that is good also
  25. A While there is no loop on the outside (for paracord etc) there is a threaded screw hole for attaching to handlebar or what have you using the supplied bracketry. It shouldn't be too much of a task to find a metal eye bolt that matches ya your local hardware store in order to achieve the desired method of attaching.
  26. A Sorry, I have no idea and don't know what bootjack is. I am not especially tech savvy so unfortunately you're asking the wrong person. You might call some of the stores that carry these products. I know I love this little speaker.
  27. A I've never really timed it but I can say that Ive had it playing outdoors while working on my yard and it's played at least 4 to 5 hours. I researched quite a few and this was my choice for the money. Sound is very good and can play loud.
