And now I can't return it.

Outside is a great place to take it, since it recharges with a solar panel.

The sound quality is powerful and crisp, even at loud volumes.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have owned other Eton products, (They manufacture crank radios for emergency, weather and shortwave radios etc..) Even so, when I got this from Amazon I was impressed at how the box that this comes in is is constructed, you can store the radio back into the box when not in use.. neat!
It comes with an AC charger, a carry strap and a remote.

I tried the solar panel right off to see how it charges, I put it out in the sun and the "o" in the "Soulra" lights up red to show that it is charging. After 5 hours I brought it in and it was pretty much fully charged.

**** Yes.. as others has said, the inside of the docking station does get warm-to-hot. It was in the full sun at about 85-90 degrees for about 5 hours so maybe putting it out in the blazing sun WITH the iPod in it and the dock port door closed to charge is not a good idea.
However; the cover for the docking port does open up, If in the sun I would leave that open, to let air get to the Ipod (They have it that you can close it to make it splash resistant. )****

I have used this with both an iPhone 3 and an older Nano iPod. They both worked great with the unit! The remote is pretty basic - Power, Volume, tracks, pause etc..

The size is about the size of a pocketbook, (matter of fact they show the strap and a woman carrying it LIKE a pocketbook) and it weighs 7 pounds.

Ok.. what about the sound?? One word - AMAZING ! 8 speakers, 20 watts and base boost really work perfect, I TRIED to overload the speakers with bass boost on.. nope didn't distort!
Don't you hate when you get a system that you CAN'T turn all the way up because the amp is too strong (or the speakers too weak) for their own system. But not with this! Crisp clear and loud!

I bought this for a two week camping trip and overall was very happy with it. The sound is really good, can get loud without distortion and I only had the battery die once in two weeks. There are only two things that I would comment on that were slightly negative. There is an on/off switch on the side labeled "Charge". It's really just an annoyance because you should always turn it off after you turn the power button off or it will drain the battery to charge the ipod. If you turn the "Charge" to off you can not play music. I even called Eton as this sounded like a defect but they told me that it was how it works? Personally I'd rather have a half charged iPod then a dead boom box so what should be a simple push button to turn it off became a three step process (you need to remove a rubber plug to get to the other switch). The other thing was the buttons on the top are covered with rubber, the rubber came off after the first week and I tore it trying to push it back in, not a problem as they are replacing it but I am a bit annoyed that it's looking like I will be out of a boom box for 2 weeks. Seems to me like they should have sent the new one out ASAP instead of making the customer wait so long. Shipping UPS less then 20miles should be like next day so wondering why the wait...

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The moment you hold the Soulra XL box in your hands, you feel as if you are getting something rather special. The boombox style and solar panel are a smart combination. The sound quality is powerful and crisp, even at loud volumes. And it does get quite loud.

The unit out of the box is undoubtedly a pretty handsome, well-made device, though the solar panel itself makes the look a little odd when lifted for solar charging. The solar panel feels a little vulnerable to harm... and so it hasn't spent a lot of time outside. I don't want to test it's durability and regret it later.

And therein lays my real problem with the Soulra. It's more or less designed for outdoor use (the rubber plug that protects the jacks is ample proof of that and a very smart feature), but I'm not super comfortable taking it anywhere other than the backyard. It is a great backyard music machine though.

Another issue directly related is that the solar panel requires direct sunlight in order to effectively charge. This would be great in many parts of the country, but living in the Pacific NW makes this feature effective about three months out of the year. Since the unit is charging your ipod/iphone simultaneously as it plays it, you're double-draining your power source.

The charge lasts for a few hours use. Unfortunately, when I go to use it a couple of days later, I need to plug it back in because the charge doesn't tend to hold for too long.

Overall, I have to say that I really love my Soulra; I love the look, the quality, the sound and the fact that it's rechargeable, unfortunately I live where the sun is never all that plentiful and the battery is rated for five hours maximum (by the manufacturer), so it winds up being plugged in most of the time. And really, I'm more than okay with that.

after reading reviews it sounded like a few people got faulty devices and i thought this sound system sounded good and was going to give it the benefit of the doubt. so we ordered it and paid almost 250 dollars for it. It worked well for the first month and we where very happy with it then one evening it just died, i tried plugging in the charger thinking the battery had just run out but it would do nothing only charge the ipod. i left it plugged in overnight to see if that would help and it didnt make a difference. i went to return it thinking these things are covered for a year just to find out i only have a month! A month of radio for only 250 dollars! I have had to return several "made in china" items as of late and im getting disgusted with the quality of stuff im purchasing on amazon. i got a partial refund on a faulty item which i think stinks and i will now stop ordering electronics from amazon and will thuink twice about any other high priced items back to walmart i guess where you expect to be given trash but at least you can return it!
