Love the ease of transportability. I am a children's entertainer, so I thought that this would be perfect instead of always finding a long extension cord for my outdoor parties and block parties. I listen to it around the house, radio only, and haven't even come close to running the battery down. Or gyms that are loud and I really need the extra boost. Here's the problems that I found:

1) The wheels are convenient, but really should be larger. When walking with it any distance it tips.
2) Bluetooth is terrible and useless. It looses it's range when you are about 6 feet away. What's the point?
3) The bass isn't adjustable. When the volume is cranked on current songs, the bass overpowers it. I do like bass and volume, but this is bad.
4) The microphone is worthless. My little portable waist PA system is much louder. This doesn't even give me enough volume to use for anything.
5) There are no presets for the radio, so it defaults back to the lowest numbers. Great for NPR since it's a low number.

Here are the positives:
1) You can charge your sound system while it plays, as long as you aren't using Bluetooth.
2) It's pretty sturdy and durable
3) Love that it has an expandable handle for moving around.

Bottom line. If you don't care about adjusting the bass, want something portable and want something with a long internal battery life, then this is for you.
If you need bluetooth to work, really good volume and a microphone to work with it, this isn't for you.

I went back and forth trying to decide whether to rate this with 2 or 3 stars, I picked 3 stars because for the right person it may be perfect. It just isn't right for me. I need all of the functions to work for my needs.

Style Name: RegularProduct Packaging: Standard Packaging Verified Purchase
I work at gm and have bought 4 bluetooth speakers before this one for work use, All of them lacked volume loud enough for noisy shop environment and had poor battery life.
I've read alot of bad reviews on the ION block rocker stating things like it has poor batt life and the battery stops holding a charge after a few weeks or months, Built poorly, ect... I must have got lucky because mine has been without Fail for 2+ months might I add "The Shop Rocker!!!".

Ok so on to the pros-

This speaker is a beast, I think its very solid and well built. It also looks great while getting the job done! The sound is loud and clear at nearly top volume I mainly keep it at 70-75% and can hear it from quite a ways away. Bluetooth is easy to connect I use my phone and 7th gen Nano but mainly direct connect with a retractable AUX cable to spare battery life in both devices. Battery life for me has been great and with no problems. There are 3 green charge level lights and 1 red low batt light, 3 green is full charge and there's a separate charging indicator light that will stay lit green until fully charged. I charge it over night and unplug it when I leave for work, My shift and music starts at 6:35am and usually ends between 3:30-4pm. It will only drop 1 out of 3 bars of batt life by last break which is around 1:30pm and thats with it at 75% volume!!! Today was the second day I ran it without charging and it lost all bars towards the end of my shift so rough estimate taking powering down for breaks into consideration it ran around 13 hours on one charge. I can also charge my phone of Nano thanks to a built in USB charging port while I play music! Battery life does depend on how you use this speaker though so here are some tips.

1)Follow the directions on the unit!!!

Style Name: With Upgraded Better Performing BatteryProduct Packaging: Standard Packaging Verified Purchase
After reading the many mixed reviews with praises and complaints, I decided to bite the bullet and buy one myself, since the price point was reasonable and since none of the small portable speakers met my audiophile needs.
I have to say that all in all the product is great and met or exceeded my expectations.
Some people complain that there is too much bass. I find that on FM radio, the bass is very present and somewhat washes into the midrange. The high frequencies remain crystal clear.
Connecting my phone via the 3.5mm audio jack provided the leaset impressive volume and quality of sound, but still better than all of the portable pocket sized competitors.
On Bluetooth, the sound quality is great, yet a tough bass heavy. I simply downloaded an EQ app for my android phone and viola - PERFECT Audio reproduction. Bass notes were crisp and clean, mids were punchy and clear, and the tweeters could not have sung any sweeter.

I have not had the speaker long enough to attest to the battery life, but I have played with it for hours and it still has all green lights on the charge indicator.
Build quallty seems sturdy, with one exception, the telescoping handle. I would recommend helping the speaker lean back onto it's wheels, rather than pulling it over with the handle. Handle is sturdy, but flexes a touch more than I am comfortable with when trying to tip the speaker.

I hope that this review helps to guide others toward an informed purchase. I love it and trust me when I say that I am somewhat of an audio snob. Volume is ample outdoors and can get too loud for indoors. The microphone function is a touch gimmicky, since it seems like the sound is directed toward a tiny speaker only, rather than through the large 2-way driver with the music.

One thing I found odd is that the FM Radio can play simultaneously with the bluetooth audio, so be sure to flip the radio to off when using the BT mode.
