If you’re looking for a Bluetooth speaker, the Braven 625s is a great option. It’s lightweight, portable and reasonably-priced for a Bluetooth speaker.
We like the design and the sounds that come from it. It’s not going to be the loudest, clearest thing you will find, but at the price and for what it is, it’s great for travel and the outdoors.
There are a few accessories included, such as the water-resistant dry bag. This is great for the outdoors. If it happens to rain, your speaker will be okay. It also has a flashlight, which may not seem immediately, useful, but can be useful for people who want to take it outdoors or camping.
The speaker has 16 hours of battery life, which is more than enough to keep you going for a day trip or the weekend (considering you aren’t using it constantly through the entire trip, but with regular use, you should be good for a few days). A nice bonus is that it can charge another device thanks to its USB port. Note that this is the same port that powers the included flashlight.
If you are looking for a Bluetooth speaker, this is definitely on our list of recommended ones.
