USB Charger Plug In breaks loose! 3 broke now.
Beware of this speaker!! Do not purchase!! I am a loyal BTA-MALL Customer and there is one very major issue with this speaker which did come up several times in the reviews I have seen. So let me add another comment about the small USB plug in charger DISLODGING!!! Sad to say I am now on my second speaker in three months and this is what happened to both. Each time with both speakers I after plugging in the charger say around a half dozen times it starts to loosen. On the first, once it started to "push in", I treated it like gold and tried my best to be careful and suddenly it just fell into the speaker housing. Yikes!! Gone. BTA-MALL replaced it since I only had it for about 4-5 weeks. Well today after about six charges and 5 weeks later the USB plug in has broken loose and is about to break off and fall into the speaker. AGAIN! Why do I not see more comments about this on the net. Do they only rate it on sound for a few days. The engineers really need to take a second look at this. I saw someone posted something about a third generation USB plug in charger, anyone know about this or can help that would be great. Too bad it is a kick-butt speaker as long as you do not try to charge it. Update, now the third speaker I bought has also had the same problem with charging and the faulty port, no kidding. Yes I am a sucker and this is the third one to break, three strikes your out Altec. DO NOT BUY THIS, I am now seeing others edit their postings after about two months of use and they are having the same issues.

Great item. Works as intended. Water proof as plastic, nice crisp loud sound. I use it to listen to audio books while i'm out side. (and inside for that matter). I also use it for music while canoe or rafting down rivers. Perhaps my only complaint is the charging could be built a bit better. However I have had only very minor problems with that.

Perfect for boating
Awesome. Falls off my boat into the water, keeps playing!!! Sounds better than my Beats speaker. Square design doesn't roll.

OK while it lasted....
Loved it for biking. It lasted 2 years then stopped charging because the charging port broke. :)
I'd replace it if it wasn't so pricey, but it's not worth it for $150.
I replaced it with another brand which has similar features for much less and so far I'm very satisfied. I could buy 5 for the price of this one and have a year warranty for each one.

Overall I believe this is an amazing product. I personally use it everywhere I go whether I am biking or working at a festival. For a speaker it is very durable and it is actually waterproof so I never have to worry about the weather effecting it's performance. Also the volume and the clarity of the music you play from the speaker is amazing but the only downfall of the speaker is that when it is in water it doesn't play the music well enough it just gargles the water kind of. So I would not recommend throwing it in to see how it plays just know that if it falls in it won't be damaged

Sounded good as new
I bought this as a gift and it certainly has been put through it's paces. It rode around on the four-wheeler got dusty and we hosed it off. Sounded good as new. This speaker is perfect for anyone who like to listen to music outdoors and not through their phone.

Small product, great purchase!
Purchased for my sons birthday as he wanted a bluetooth speaker with good sound. This one has it! He takes it out on his boat and is heard well over the loudness of the motor. He is taking to beach now as it is so much better than a giant speaker to lug around.

Good product but poor usb charging port.
The usb charging port has become unreliable the charging cable doesn't fit snug so i have to wiggle it or set something on it to put pressure against to charge.
