Easy connection to Bluetooth
Easy connection to Bluetooth. It's very loud too! Used it for a family reunion. At least 80 of us and I did not need to use it at max volume.

BOOM shake the room!
This thing is wonderful! I had a Logitech rechargeable speaker before and this thing blows that out of the water. As the name suggests, it is portable and rechargeable. I will say that it is portable but you are not going to fit it into a school backpack. You may be able to fit it into a carry on but it wouldn't leave much room for clothes. Battery life thus far is outstanding although I have only had it for a couple weeks. When it arrived, I fully charged the battery and haven't had to plug it in since after several hours of listening. Bluetooth was simple and straight forward allowing me to connect an IPod Nano quickly. Sound quality is wonderful considering the price. Some audiophiles may moan about this and that but let's be realistic. This speaker is intended for those wanting to pump a lot of music at the beach/park/locker room/party/etc with good sound quality. If you are really looking for audiophile quality, you can't expect it in those environments. You certainly can't expect it at this price. This speaker produces wonderful rich sound that 99% of us will love. The other 1% will never be happy.
Only thing I would change: This speaker is about the size of a small personal electric guitar amplifier. It is about the same weight as one too. It would be nice if there was a heavy duty strap over the top of the speaker for easier single-handed carrying. As it is designed, if you carry it with a single hand you must hold it from the side causing the speaker to tilt and whatever may be in the top tray may fall out.
Another note: If you find your microphone doesn't work or has stopped working, double check the volume levels. Both the "Mic Volume" and the "Master Volume" will adjust the volume of the microphone.
I love this product so much that I went ahead and purchased 4 more for other family members. They have been thrilled with theirs and each is working perfectly.

A Loud and Versatile Speaker
After using this speaker for almost a year I've found it to be extremely useful for a number of different situations. I originally purchased this speaker because I needed a reliable way to wirelessly play music during a friend's wedding ceremony and for the cocktail hour of the reception which were both located in different areas than the main reception area where the DJ equipment was located. This speaker truly exceeded my expectations. It is LOUD and doesn't distort the audio at higher volumes. The Bluetooth range was surprisingly long as well.
After its use for the wedding I've used it every day to listen to podcasts during my morning shower. Voices on podcasts come through very cleanly even at high volume. I've also used this speaker in my garage while using power tools with ear protection and at outdoor parties.
The microphone that is included with the speaker is the only negative aspect of this speaker. It truly is a terrible quality mic. As I don't have a need to use a microphone with this speaker I'm not taking away from the rating of this review.

Feld tested speaker at Woodstock
I took my ION Tailgate speaker for a sound test.
I have to say that it is well worth the price, my friend said he could hear the music when he was in the middle of the field (from the Woodstock monument)
It sounded so good that the visitors wanted to know if I was employed by Woodstock.
The speaker is so loud, If the volume is turned to max and are in front of the speaker can not talk in a normal voice.

great little deal
great little deal, all/all good sound light, sound better than the larger rocker w/wheels i will buy again and looking for other buyers.
if there was one available w/ac output and 12v dc socket this item will be perfect for all the street go-ers that i know even for me.

This thing is amazing, especially for this price point! I paid $99.00. It is very loud. I use it approx. 40 hrs. before I have to charge it. The NFC works flawlessly. I would recommend to anyone.

Got it fast, works as stated in ads and will be used well at camps this year. Exactly what I was looking for.
