I completely agree with most here that the audio is surprisingly clear and load on this product. I wanted to dive in on the battery issue that some are having.

Unlike most consumer electronics that use a Lithium Ion, this big boy is a sealed LEAD ACID battery, similar to the battery in your car. As such, it should be treated differently to get the best results and the longest life. Here are a few tips to get the most out of your device: The first 10-20 cycles of a lead acid battery are called "formatting", all you need to know about this is try not to work the battery too hard. At the very least, keep from completely draining the battery and charge as often as you can. This unit comes with an onboard circuitry that keeps the battery from overcharging, so you do not need to worry about that.

Also, keep in mind that the battery CAN be replaced if needed, the 4 screws on the bottom of the unit can be removed and a replacement can be purchased on amazon. The main thing to keep in mind is to prevent from completely discharging the battery, and you should be able to get 200+ cycles from it.

I love this speaker. The sound is great, it's plenty loud enough for outdoor use, and has made our outdoor gatherings and hangouts a lot more fun. It pairs easily with your phone, and is heavy enough to feel substantial with great build quality, but still manages to be very portable. Long battery life too.

HELPFUL TIP: When I first turned it on I was disappointed with muddy & distorted sound, but then I noticed that the volume on my phone was turned all the way up. When I turned my phones volume down to about midway, the sound quality vastly improved. I could still turn the volume up on the speaker itself and enjoy excellent sound.

ANOTHER HELPFUL TIP: I would recommend downloading an equalizer app so you can adjust the treble, bass, etc on your phone. This speaker only has a volume knob, but with an equalizer app you can customize it to your preferences. ION has one called the Block Rocker app, which works with this speaker.

I've been waiting for this little box to come out for a while now, and as soon as I saw it on Amazon it was game on. Super fast delivery for as heavy as it is. Connection to the iPad, iPhone, and iPod were a snap. Less than a minute and I was up and running via Bluetooth. I think that the charge time was around 5 hrs. I took it camping and no one could believe the sound that this little guy puts out. Sound was perfect. Radio stations were a little hard to get in at times, but then again we were surrounded by trees. Tuned in with iHeart Radio and we were jamming along. The extra 110 outlets in the back sure help out a lot, the only thing that I wish that it did have is either a flush dock for an iPod or iPhone, or a separate charging station. Overall I'm very satisfied with the Job Rocker. It serves it's purpose, and for those beach days, camping days, or doing work outside, this thing will deliver your sound without flaw.

This speaker is a beast. It's rugged and loud, which is exactly what I was looking for. I use it to play music at indoor and outdoor volleyball games. It can easily handle 2 or 3 courts worth of sound outside, and at least 3 courts inside, even with a lot of noise in a gym. I'm not afraid when a ball bounces off the front because it's got a handle bar protecting it, and dirt and dust aren't a problem for it. The controls are easy to use, but I haven't tried the FM radio yet. It doesn't have USB charging for your phone, which would be a nice touch, but that isn't a major concern for me.

Sound:
The sound quality is excellent. It doesn't get distorted even at high volumes, and the bass really holds up well. The sound is pretty balanced, but playing music through my phone on it, I can always adjust the EQ from my phone if I need to.

Connections:
The aux port on my unit is a little wonky.. if I don't have the aux cable in just right, it just turns to static, but at long as I make sure it's okay and don't move my phone much after that, it seems to be fine. Maybe I just got unlucky. The Bluetooth connection is strong, but I usually have to tell it to disconnect the Bluetooth then reconnect to it, then it's fine. Maybe that's just a byproduct of my battery dying though. Speaking of the battery..

Battery:
It's rated to last 50 hours, and while it lasted a long time for me the first few times I used it, after about 2 months the battery no longer holds a charge for more than about 5 minutes. This may be because it uses a lead-acid battery, similar to a car battery, and if you let the battery die completely, apparently that causes problems.

I really love this product for two main reasons. One, it has the power to rock any party, gathering, inside, outside, or job site with some crisp clean sound. It sounds better when music is plugged in through the auxiliary port, but only when your really turning it up all the way, and after having it for about 6 months I rarely have done so. Two, the 50 hour battery life is beyond awesome! Not having to worry about a power source for two days has never been an issue for me so far and it charges completely over night. I bring it around the house all day with me inside and out doing chores, or whatever and its always so great and im so happy i made the investment. Very nice rugged heavy duty build too.

Some cons - It is pretty heavy,and big. almost 20 lbs id say but this isnt really the type of speaker your going to put in your bookbag and take on a hike or to the beach. I feel like someone would know this just looking at a picture of it though.

Power outlets in the back DO NOT WORK WHILE UNPLUGGED FROM POWER SOURCE. Though I knew this before my purchase it was still a let down, because the thought of charging you phone or tablet from the same thing your playing music from is always a huge plus... especially when there is a 50 hour battery life on the speaker!

Bluetooth range is meh, without any walls in between it will range around 100 feet or so said the box, some times it can skip a little bit but 97% of the time when your in range it is seamless. being upstairs or downstairs will limit the 100 ft range for sure.

If you like some good powerful sound from a portable speaker than job rocker is the speaker for you!
