This compact water resistant speaker has an aluminium shell with matte black plastic at the top and bottom. It has a fairly slim design which delivers audio from its dual 5W speakers. At the top there’s large rubberised buttons for power, pairing / answer call, play / pause and volume / skip tracks. In the box you also get a wrist strap, an instruction leaflet plus Micro USB charging and 3.5mm audio cables

Despite the compact size, this speaker has a nice weight to it and the aluminium gives it a premium feel compared to a lot of the plastic speakers on the market.

Pairing was straightforward and I soon had it connected to my phone and pumping out tunes. Bass was excellent with decent mids and highs – although I did notice a little loss in clarity to the high end. Overall it gave a pleasurable listening experience for the price. As expected for a speaker this size, it doesn’t get overly loud for outdoor use. However it’s plenty loud for indoors and even at full volume there was very little distortion.

iclever-ic-bts04-backThis speaker is rated as having a whopping 10 hour battery life and despite a fair bit of use I still haven’t managed to kill the 1800mAh battery. Once it has been depleted you just need to recharge it for 3 to 4 hours using the supplied USB cable. Bluetooth reception was also good with very few dropouts.

iclever-ic-bts04-sideOverall for the current £25/$36 asking price there’s very little to complain about here as this is a well made, nicely designed and decent sounding speaker with great battery life (plus it can handle the odd splash). Pick one up from the links below…
