In 2020 we witnessed a pandemic-induced spike in outdoor recreation. As you’ve undoubtedly noticed, that produced an ever expanding cohort of people enjoying time outside. And what my friend pairs well with time outdoors?
Until recently, we’d yet to find a speaker that checks all the boxes. What matters most to us is weather resistance, sound quality, battery life, and portability. I’d be fibbing if I said aesthetics weren’t also a factor, but performance trumps prettiness.
5 Reasons Turtlebox is the Best
1) This is a fully weather and waterproof speaker.
Water and dust-proof connectivity products are defined by Ingress Protection (IP) numbers. The Turtlebox has an IP67 designation. The first number after IP is used to display a product’s protection against solid particles like sand. It ranges from 0-6, with 6 denoting 100% protection against dust and sand.
The second number ranges 0-8, and refers to the product’s protection against liquids. The Turtlebox’s “7” designation means it’s protected against the effects of full liquid immersion for up to 30 minutes.
Throw in stainless steel hardware to avoid corrosion, an impact resistant outer shell, and you should feel confident to take this speaker wherever the trail leads.
2) This speaker is loud. It will actually punch the wind in the face.
Turtlebox boasts a clear, distortion free sound up to 120dB. Interested in knowing what that actually means? Here’s an explanation from the University of Michigan Health System’s website:
*Personal disclaimer: don’t put your ear up to this speaker on full blast, that is inadvisable.
3) Battery life - Turtlebox is usually the last one to leave the party.
At an easy listening volume, say, suitable for a backyard BBQ or campfire kumbaya, this tank will last you over 20 hours.
Turtlebox features an 85 watt-hour built in Lithium Ion battery pack, which in 2021 has been upgraded from 6-cells to 9-cells, drastically improving the battery life.
4) It’s portable. It really does carry just like a lunch box.
Ability to lift and/or transport up to 10lbs
