Product Review: LifeProof Aquaphonics AQ10 Portable Bluetooth Speaker

So I have had different low end Bluetooth speakers, but this LifeProof Aquaphonics AQ10 Portable Bluetooth Speaker is a huge step up in performance and engineering. It's small footprint is great so you can easily find a place to put it, on your boat, next to your camper, or on the ground while you work. We used this over the past weekend while we camped. I was surprised at it's range, It was playing at our camper and we walked down quite a few sites to a family members site, and my daughter verified that it was still playing my playlist.

Some of the positive aspects of this unit, is it's rich and balanced sound quality, it;s lastability (13 hour rechargeable battery), it's submersibility up to 1 meter for 30 minutes (which I have not tested yet), it's drop-ability from 1.2 meters, it's sealability from dirt, dust and snow, it's charge-ability (yes it can charge other usb devices) it's dry-ability (for money, credit cards, id, or mp3 player, and finally it's call-ability (it has it's own microphone). This is a unit with a ton of capabilities...

Now for the one thing that really bothers me about this device, and it actually had a considerable impact it's overall rating and lost a star because of it. At this point we all have plenty of chargers with Micro Usb connectors on it. I love that most of my devices use this type of connector, so I am not searching every time I want to charge a device for their specific charger. This has a proprietary charger included with it. So I will always have to keep up with where I have this stored this bugger.
The hope the engineers of this device designed it in this way solely to maintain the durability of the charge port.

I would recommend this to a friend, even with it's charging shortcomings. You can grab one of these here.
