Deducted one star because it comes with a charging cable only - the wall plug is not included. I'm guessing their theory is that it will be charged by a computer and used on the go. And, yes, "everyone" has a wall plug anyway. But to package a product without all necessary accessories is just not right.
Update: I give it one extra star since I was able to find a trick to solve the issue. Maybe it is just a firmware issue and an update may solve the problem: I connected the unit to the USB power supply, press the three dots button for about 15 seconds, press the power button and it come alive again... I'm not happy with the lack of support. If the issue is so easy to solve, the troubleshooting guide should be available.
Added more stars: the issue happened once again after a lot of using the speakers, but it was easy to solve again.
1. That charging cable is very popular for use with non-Apple phones/tablets as well as many digital cameras. Let's try another cable.
2. We can try resetting the speaker as well. With the speaker turned on, press and hold the AUX and Volume - buttons for 10-20 seconds, until a tone is heard.
If the issue persists, we have product support specialists available to ensure that we get you back up and running. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 1-800-379-2073. We are open from Mon. - Fri., 9 AM - 9 PM EST.
I bought this item after weighing the majority of the 4-5 star reviews vs the battery issues and lack of supplied wall charger complaints of the 1 star reviews thinking that was a minoritity.
When I unboxed my product it did not work at all. I figured maybe it had absolutely zero pre charge, which would of been annoying but at least solvable. Since I planned ahead from reading other reviews I had a separately purchased wall adapter ready to plug into the supplied power cord that I had tested and confirmed worked with other products ahead of time but, this didnt work either! The product would not show any signs of accepting a charge to the battery, or even turn on at all after several hours of being plugged in, including trying to power it on while still plugged in.
I then called BOSE customer support who talked me through a number of steps to fix what I later found online to be a common "battery/power reset" issue. None of the steps worked. After doing more research online I found these not working out of the box, or failing shortly after initially charging very few times is widespread. I was rooting for the speaker to work. I like BOSE products, and the look of this item. Returning this for a full refund, very disappointed.
- The design has a simple / premium look and has an excellent rubber texture for comfort and to create a greater grip.
- Set up is super fast and you’re able to connect up to 8 devices.
- It's Bose, so expect crisp sound, rich in lows / highs, and a decent bass, given the size of it.
- Outdoor and ready to go at a moment notice.
- You can connect two devices at the same time, so you can piss off your siblings by changing the music to something else without waiting for them to stop listening to it.
- For Bluetooth range, I used it close to 35 feet without any disturbance in changing music.
- Very light for what Bose normally designs its products.
Cons and Oks:
- Battery life is 8 hours or less. A lot of competitors have already gone beyond 15 +hours on battery life, so this was a bummer to find out.
- No power adapter on a USB cable. No idea why they didn’t provide one, especially if you only have a wall outlet.
- It’s “Splash resistant” but there are a decent amount of openings that if water gets inside it will be lights out (Still able to take it outdoors, just not close to the pool).
- Not a problem to me but compare to Bose’s usually quality; the bass on this is decent but not great. This becomes more obvious when you’re outside.
- Doesn’t give that much height in volume. It’s still good but I expected a higher limit.
Bose in one of the best around in stereos and this gives you a taste of it. It’s a good speaker and I love the fact that you can take it anywhere and experience Bose quality at a moment notice. I do not like the fact that the battery life is this low, given what competitors are already selling, and not making it waterproof does make you become a little more protective of it (if you’re going to bring it on the road). I’m giving it 4 stars because the quality is beautiful but you expect a little bit more such as battery life, waterproofing, etc. Yes, I know you’re buying from a company that is one of the best in the world, and the sound quality coming form this speaker is indeed better than 98% of its competitors out their right now. But here is the verdict: It’s indeed a Bose speaker but it's better if you move it around the house instead of out of the house.
