Most Bluetooth speakers rely on a rechargeable battery so that you don't have to leave it tethered to an outlet when you're streaming music. However, the battery life of a Bluetooth wireless speaker can range drastically, from six hours to 40 hours.
Music today is available everywhere. Streamed, downloaded and shared via smartphones,tablets and laptops. Within the extensive range of Philips Home Audio products are dozens of Bluetooth compatible designs – so whether you’re an Apple, Android or Windows user, you can stream your favorite music easily and wirelessly via Bluetooth wireless speakers.
The most important feature of any Bluetooth wireless speaker is the audio quality. If it doesn't sound good, there's no point in it. Next, you'll want to consider the battery life. For a Bluetooth speaker to be truly portable, it needs to be able to perform for long periods without access to an outlet. After audio quality and battery life, you'll want to consider the controls and durability. The best Bluetooth speakers have bodies designed to perform in the harshest environments.
The 5W speaker inside the iClever offers bedroom-filling sound that is much louder than what's available from your , although its meshed-top design forces it to throw audio upward rather than around the room. With Bluetooth 4.0 technology it also boasts good range (up to 33ft), and we experienced no dropouts walking room to room with paired phone in hand. If your mobile device doesn't support Bluetooth you can instead use the Bluetooth Wireless Speaker's AUX connection, and a cable is included in the box.
