Design and Build
What makes this speaker so interesting and popular is its design. The Mpow® Armor comes with a durable build made of high quality plastic allowing it to withstand drops from a few feet without a scratch. The aesthetic features are also remarkable especially for a speaker in this price range.
You get a plastic body with classic black radiator grilles and assorted color accents to bring a pop of color which mix well with the minimalist design. Controls are composed of one power button and a previous and next button to control your playlist and volume. Simply give the buttons a longer press when changing volumes. The speaker also comes with USB and AUX ports.
There’s no need to worry about this speaker adding too much extra weight to your camping gear. At 12.8 ounces, the speaker is light and easy to carry especially with its compact and space-saving design. Designers also included a lanyard hole so that users can carry the speaker on their belts. This way you can have music blasting as you and your group go on that hike, without any worries about keeping your speaker secure.
This speaker is also popular because of its rich, immersive sound quality that is hard to come by for speakers with this portability and price range. Sounds are sharp and clear and the bass is surprisingly good even when playing outdoors.
Distortions are minimal or absent even when the speaker is turned up to the highest volume. Of course, you won’t get hi-fidelity quality with portable speakers like these, but they come pretty close especially if you place the speaker in a location where it is free from any vibrations.
The speaker comes with a Bluetooth 4.0 range that allow you to sync the device with your phone. The speakers can also be used for taking calls. Connections are quick and easy and fairly strong, with decent signals for at least 15 feet. Users have experienced a slight decrease in signals when there are walls present but this does not affect the sound in any way.
This portable speaker comes with a rugged and water resistant build making it the perfect companion for outdoor camping trips, hikes, or picnics. It has a waterproof IP65 rating making it suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. The rating also means that the unit can withstand waterjets from any direction, making it safe and perfect for rather extreme outdoor activities that involve running or gushing water.
It is important to note that this rating does not mean that the unit can withstand immersion in water. Only devices with an IP67 rating can be immersed in water without any damage. However, if users are unexpectedly in the rain or accidentally fall into a puddle, the speakers won’t suffer any damage.
Emergency power supply
One useful feature is the emergency power supply. The speaker can serve as a power bank that allows users to take calls on their phone even if they are low on battery. Simply connect the phone to the speaker in order to use its reserve power. This eliminates the need to carry an extra power bank. With 12 hours of operating time for a single charge, users have plenty of power available when the charge on their phones run out.
Battery life is excellently rated an impressive 5/5 by users. The speaker comes with a 100 mAh lithion ion battery which can power the unit for up to 12 hours of playing time for a single charge.
