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.
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.
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.
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..
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.Read more ›
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!
