TELL YOUR FRIENDS For less than 40 dollars, you get loud, portable music, streaming off your bluetooth device, in a compact, wedge-shaped speaker with the robust Boombot clip to attach to your messenger bag, belt or just about anywhere else. This speaker is light – 5 ounces – and the battery lasts about six hours on a one-hour charge for impromptu daily jam sessions.

WISH LIST Boombot keeps it simple here – this is a wireless speaker and nothing else. Adding a mic for speakerphone capability would be nice but, if anything, I would prefer a hard line input for those times bluetooth isn’t available. That said, why make it more complex than needed?

SUMMARY The ‘under $40’ market is fairly new for quality portable speakers and Boombot fits nicely into this category. You won’t be knocking socks off with the bass, but kicking a small gathering up a few notches with groovy tunes is always a hit. It’s an ideal companion for small group rides and post-sundown adventures. The Boombot Mini delivers good sound quality, substantial volume and a dead-simple interface with onboard track controls (play/pause/skip). The unit is weatherproof (IPX5 rated) and shock-resistant so you can be as free as your music. Available in three colors and backed by a one-year warranty, if you aren’t packing your tunes already, this would be a good place to start.
