Great sound from this SMALL speaker!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: X-Mini II XAM4-B Portable Capsule Speaker, Mono, Black (Electronics)
(Video) Could have been better quality, but too large and wouldn't upload.
First off, This speaker is incredible for it's size. There is almost no distortion in sound when playing on MAX volume. It comes with a USB splitter, to charge and a 3.5mm plug so that you can connect multiple X Mini II's together. It also comes with a handy bag to store your X Mini II in. I had an Altec Lansing iM207 before this, and the X Mini II blew the iM207 away!!!. The size difference was one thing, and the sound quality was another. The iM207 also ran on 3 AAA batteries. There will also be distortion in the iM207 on full volume. The playtime with the batteries was terrible. I had to switch batteries every week, with only around 20minutes of playtime each day. For the X Mini II, it can play up to 8 hours. There are also LED indicators of when you need to charge again, and when it is fully charged.

Does this unit have rechargeable batteries? What size batteries does it uses?

Does the unit use a rechargeable batteries? IF so do you recharge with a USB?

Yes, you recharge the speaker with a USB cable that comes with it.

Can you use the USB splitter instead of the 3.5mm jack for connecting the speaker to the PC for sound transmission, not just for recharging? if so, can I use the usb connection to play the music and simultaneously recharge the battery? I'm hoping to avoid use of my laptop's 3.5 receptor, as it's a bit wonky.
Thank you so much for the video review! I'm impressed enough to want to buy one, even if I have to use the 3.5 jack port with it, it's so adorable! Even when it bounces around the table - looks like it's dancing :)

No, you can't use the USB splitter to replace the 3.5mm =\. You can charge and play the music with the 3.5mm jack simultaneously though. Hopefully your 3.5 receptor isn't that bad. Maybe you can purchase a sound card and use the 3.5mm jack on that? And no problem with the review, hopefully you will purchase and enjoy this mini speaker :)

Here's a slightly off topic question, but what song were you using during the review video? I'm loving my X Mini II so far. Thanks for the review!
