Wish there was a power button lock.
on October 17, 2011
I purchased this speaker system last February and so far it has been a great little portable iPod system. It is super compact, has great sound, and the battery last for at least 12 hours of playtime.
My only issue is that there is no way to lock the power button or remove the battery. This becomes an issue when you want to travel with the speaker system (which is the primary reason I bought this). The power button is super easy to tap accidentally and when you have it packed in suitcase or backpack the slightest little bump will turn the thing on.
Not a big of deal when your destination has power and you can plug it in to an outlet... But there have been multiple occasions when I fully charged the system, packed it up, then took off for a camping trip. Only to find that when I want to use it that the power got turned on during travel and the speakers only have one bar of power left or are completely dead... Which immediately voids all the positive aspects and turns it into a useless block of plastic and metal.
So basically, it's a great little speaker system for the home or a travel destination with access to power, but completely useless if you ever want to take it camping or use it in a similar no power situation.
