AYL Soundfit Waterproof Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless Speaker

I’ve been offered a few different bluetooth speakers in the last year, and I’ve turned all of them down, because lets be honest…a lot of them are very similar, if not just the same product with a different name attached to it. Until AYL offered me their SoundFit Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker. Finally, something a little different, and rugged enough that I can put it just about anywhere and enjoy something better than the tinny little speaker in my phone, or the bigger, but still tinny, speakers in our tablets. So let’s dive in and enjoy all the nifty things this AYL SoundFit can do!

Up until now, the Liztek PSS-100 I’d tested out had been just fine for all my wireless listening needs. It was a marked upgrade from those little bitty speakers in our mobile devices, and was loud enough to fill the room with sound. I didn’t want to take it outside for fear of an errant spray or splash, for being tumbled by a overeager pooch. Plus, there was a very loud (and increasingly annoying) lady’s voice telling me when it was “connected”. But AYL’s SoundFit cures all those ills, and then some. See, I’d kind of resigned myself to losing out on a decent low-ends due to the small size and nature of these speakers. And then AYL comes in and shows me what I was missing, aurally. I attribute that to their design and powerful 5w driver. The highs are crisp without being tinny, the sound is full and rich, and you lose no detail in the playback. It’s not reference-quality, but for a speaker that fits in the palm of your hand, it’s pretty awesome.

AYL went the extra mile with their SoundFit Bluetooth Speaker, because it’s rugged as all get out too. Safe from drops, spill, dust, dirt, sprays and rain (IPX5 water resistance rated), short of driving over it with the truck, I don’t know what I could do to kill it. I accidentally dropped it on the tile, and let me tell you I was more worried about the tile. The speaker never missed a beat! It also paired (quickly, too!) with everything we have without any hiccups or issue of any sort. You get your choice of colors, a convenient carry strap, a bag to store it, and charging cable, a 3.5mm audio cable for wired connections, an anti-interference mic, top mounted controls and shock-absorbent rubber casing, and a mounting screw for bikes or accessories?! And a 3-year warranty? Are you kidding me? For only $29.95? This one is a no-brainer. I’ve had it for weeks listening for about an hour at a time, and it’s still on it’s initial charge! You get up to 12 hours of charge off a full charge of only 4 hours from empty. I think this AYL SoundFit is a keeper and I’m glad I got to try it.

Pecham 12,000mah 3-Outlet Portable Power Bank

Logo

In this digital age, we only go as far and as fast as our various sundry devices’ power allows. Sometimes we fall a little short. Especially when short-sighted manufacturers decide to not make our devices with removable batteries. So we have become increasingly dependent on power outlets, wireless charging, or portable power banks. One such goody is Pecham’s 12,000mah Power Bank. Yes, you read that right. Twelve thousand milliamp hours. This power bank is no slouch, and can easily power your phone, tablet and .mp3 player all at once! Or be the belle of the ball and power you colleague’s cell phones along with your own! There is plenty of juice to go around!

No content with the single outlet offered by the majority of power banks on the market, Pecham decided that 3 was the way to go. Not all of them are “full power” though. One is a 2.4A outlet, the other two 1A outlets, which are sufficient for trickle charges. I was able to successfully charge both Hubby’s Nexus 7 and our LG l90 to full power, together at once, and the Pecham Power Bank still showed some juice available. That’s pretty cool in my book.

While it’s a touch on the large size (about the size and thickness of a 5″ screen cellphone), the lithium-polymer battery gets the job done and looks pretty stylish doing it. It has a rubberized non-slip finish on the body, and a bright white ring around the outside edge. There is a blue lit LED ring at the power button that actually gives you a readout of approximately how much power is left in the bank. 4 blue mini lights tells you you have 75-100%, 3 is 50-75%, 2 for 25-50%, and one for 0-25%. I love this feature because before, with most of the power banks I’ve used, I had to hope there was plenty of power left to get a decent charge. No more guessing with the Pecham Power Bank. Included in the box is a three-head charging cable, that serves double duty to not only charge the bank via micro USB cable, but has connectors for any available 5V device on the market! It has smart circuitry that automatically shuts down if overcharging (voltage/current), over-discharging (voltage/current), short-circuits, or overheating occurs. It will also automatically shutdown if the device has finished recharging. At $21.99 (at time of this writing) it’s competitively priced with other power banks with similar features, but has almost all of them beat by having 3 ports instead of the standard one or two. No risks, all rewards. Sounds like my kind of gadget!
