Our family has been getting very active with outdoor living enjoying long weekend camping trips, having a picnic or just enjoying days in our neighborhood parks. To make these events a pleasant one we do our best to purchase products that either have multi-uses or that are durable to withstand the outdoor elements.
We ran across the Ancord Outdoor Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker and thought it would be a nice addition to our outdoor gear. We thank the team from Freewise, who offer us a discount for this military green speaker we purchase on Amazon.
What make me interested in purchasing this product was the convenience of size, compatibility and the use of bluetooth and IPX waterproofing value it had. At the time of purchase, Ancord had two colors to pick from which was green and orange. Being an Army Mom, I loved the green speaker which also pairs nicely with other outdoor gear we have.
We received our outdoor speaker very quickly and the merchant did do a nice job to safeguard the speaker in the packaging material. The Ancord Outdoor speaker comes with a 3.5 mm auxiliary jack to plug into multiple outputs like your cellphone, laptop, tablets as well as a USB power cord for charging. The instruction manual provides quick and short steps how to power on the speaker, set bluetooth, connect NFC or scan for your favorite FM channels. Although it took some time to figure out how to use the speaker controls, it was fairly easy after using it a few times. To turn on the device just hold down the power button for 4-5 seconds, the blue like will turn on and a voice control will announce "Bluetooth Mode". To change this to FM mode, click the power button once and the speaker will announce "FM Mode". Note that the last mode you had it on when you power down will be the mode it will start at when you turn the speaker on again.
Ancord Outdoor Speakers comes with a lithium 1500 mAh battery that can provide up to 12 hours of play between charges. You can also preload audio files on a TF card reader for those moments where there is a lack of FM transmission.
The Ancord Outdoor Bluetooth Speakers is a great gift idea for outdoor family or friends. Get more details on Amazon to get yours.
