I have been wanting to get myself a nice little portable speaker that I could use with my iPad for when I video chat with friends and family. I always find the volume on ipad isn't loud enough so when I got the chance to try out the Kinivo ZX100 Mini Portable Speaker with Rechargeable Battery and Enhanced Bass Resonator I couldn't wait to try it out.
I tried it out while video chatting and I was quite happy that I could finally hear someone talking and not having to ask them to repeat themselves a bunch of times. Then I decided to listen to music to see how the sound quality is. Considering this is a small speaker and it isn't very expensive I think the sound quality is very good.
To charge the portable speaker I plugged it into my laptop but if you have a USB plug to wall adapter you can just plug it into that and in the wall to charge it. The battery life is ok but I don't really use it for longer than an hour and I plug it in to charge for an hour or 2 before using it.
Only thing that I think some people will not like is the little wire that plugs from the speaker to the earphone plug on your device it very short but personally I don't mind it at all.
