is simple. We hardly ever listen to the radio here so connecting it to the phone/spotify/computer is what we have done lately. The size is killer, it's semi-waterproof so putting it on the wet grass or wet dirt did not scare us one bit. We even had it play during a little drizzle and it kept going.
Battery use is fine too. 18 hours or something like that which is more than enough for any riding/digging/party. The speaker has dropped from the front seat after some heavy braking and nothing broke. That's good news for some of you that have a hard time keeping things new. The Boomster comes with a remote control device and a charger cable.
The negatives you ask? Not too much really. The On button is kinda hard to press. You need to hold it for a few seconds before it turns on so it's not just a quick hit for an on/off switch. What we also encountered is that the reception when using Bluetooth doesn't reach very far. The solution there is to leave your phone with the speaker for the best result.
