Introducing the JBL OnBeat Mini. This compact speaker dock for the iPad mini packs a serious audio punch, thanks to two JBL full-range transducers and built-in DSP (digital signal processing) that combine to deliver dynamic, space filling sound. If you've got an iPad mini, you've got to get the JBL OnBeat Mini. This JBL speaker dock lets you enjoy the music on your iPad mini, iPad (4th generation), iPhone 5, iPod touch (5th generation) or iPod nano (7th generation) without adapters - and it has a USB port for compatibility with other devices. It can bring the sound from ceiling to floor for up to 8 hours using its internal battery, and even charges your docked device when it's using AC power. Compact and portable, the JBL OnBeat Mini is good to go whenever the rhythm hits you.

I'm not a audiophile or anything like that. just a normal dude who wanted to jam at the office from time to time.
Here are the things I dislike about it.
1. Horrible lightning connector. iPhone 6 says something like "this charging device is not supported by iPhone" IF it connects to the lightning connector and starts charging it will come disconnected by the time you select your playlist. So then you will need to wiggle it around until it connects again. About 5-7 songs into your jams it will come disconnected again.
2. Volume Control. I use this at my office so I need the volume to be reasonable level just in case something a little crazy comes on during a shuffle all music day happens to come to mind. I have a problem with the music either being too quiet or way too loud and pressing the volume button once will change the noise level with a pretty significant increase/decrease in volume.
3. Volume Control when starting it up (keep in mind that it often comes unplugged/disconnected - reference #1) So when I plug in to jam at the office for the first time I always do the following - put phone in the connector, press the power button, press the (-) volume button 5 times or so. Because it is automatically set for vol 5 out of 10 (which 5 blasts down my entire hallway). Then I have to reference #2 throughout the playlist. But I often run into the problem where the phone comes disconnected from the lightning connector (ref #1) and the device might turn off on its own after a few minutes of inactivity. So then I wiggle the thing around, get a connection, get my playlist up, push play and its on volume level 5 and 6 offices down get a taste of what I'm listening too. #thatguy
This device has become a paperweight for me. Which it's a lovely paperweight. Almost covers and entire sheet of paper.
The things I like about it.
1. Good paperweight.
Not a fan of being unable to have the phone in a case. Any device you plug in needs a case.
Taking your device in and out of a case to dock it is stupid.
I would not buy this again, nor recommend.
No device can be all things. It has a USB port on the back and charges well. It is a good speaker, as well as a good portable speaker.
But the design flaw of not being able to have any case is beyond explanation.
Wanted to like it.
ORIGINAL REVIEW: Great lightening charger. Good speaker. But my iPhone 6 Otterbox has to be removed each time I dock. This is its purpose for me, to charge my phone each night. So, I am disappointed. There is an adapter for another $18-20. But that makes this not a reasonable solution. The dock works similarly with an iPad. I really like this dock. But feel divided at the same time. It is as advertised.
Still a great speaker, but--- the Otterbox has to come off every night. So, of course I've had to do a warranty on an Otterbox because that on/off broke down my Otterbox. So... This device just doesn't work effortlessly as a charger.
I dropped my iPhone 6 and now need a new screen. Sigh.
Small design tweaks and this is a good solution.
1. When you first plug in your IPad, your volume gets set to 33% - no matter what it was set to before plugging it in. This is just a little loud for the middle of the day and when you're going to bed late, you better turn it way down before starting any music.
2. The connector is of high quality but it sits in a position where you have to pay close attention to get the alignment just right to get it in the IPad. I'd be more comfortable with something that aligned flush with the body of the device, even if I had to adjust the fit during initial setup.
