Best Battery Powered Bluetooth Speaker

30 May, 2023 by Admin

Some of the best battery powered speakers are Bose Smart Speaker and UE Megablast. They can produce sound in 360-degree direction as a result the performance is immersive. They also have a broad soundfield with good accuracy. If you want a battery powered speaker with ultra-high battery life, check the Monster Rockin’ Roller 270X.

It has a battery life of 100 hours. This speaker has Qi wireless charging option, mic, and guitar port. Unlike most conventional speakers, it produces sound in 270-degree direction. JBL PartyBox 100 and Monster 270X are large speakers suitable for larger spaces. They are party speakers where you can connect to a microphone and sing along.

Things to consider while choosing the best battery powered speakers:

The following lists some of the important criteria to look into while buying the best battery powered speaker.

  • Audio performance

Compact speakers are now well engineered resulting in powerful sound quality. Battery powered speakers may play in mono or stereo mode and the stereo will be a better choice. If the speaker has EQ modes and sound settings, you can use them to adjust the tune.

Bass performance is clean but average from these portable speakers. However, the performance will vary based on speaker driver size. Some speakers use additional options like Bass Boost to enhance the bass.

  • Battery Life

After sound performance battery life is the nest important factor to look into. This is because we want the portable speakers to remain powered as long as we want. For that, figure out your usage time and choose a speaker with higher or medium level battery lifetime. Make sure you understand the approximate volume level of your speaker. Volume level will directly affect the battery life.

  • Charging Tiime

We want the charging time to be as low as possible and the opposite for battery life. Make sure the speaker charges within a short time so that even if the battery drains out, you can still charge and reuse it.

  • Other Features

Not all battery powered speakers include Wi-Fi but all of them supports Bluetooth. In case you prefer Wi-Fi, choose the UE Megablast. Wired connectivity may also vary. While some doesn’t include any wired ports, others might have 3.5 mm port or USB. Some of the speakers support voice assistant or speakerphone for phone calls while others don’t.

JBL PartyBox 100 is a portable Bluetooth speaker which is ideal for large parties, DJs, or musicians. It is a large speaker that weighs more than 9.5kg. It has built-in handles with which you can take it from one place to another. This rectangular shaped speaker has two RGB ring lights. Choose from three different light options and bring on party mood. The build quality is quite good with plastic and metal grille.

The top of the speaker has multiple control options. In terms of performance, the speaker has excellent sound quality with good bass. If you are a bass head, choose Bass Boost control to enhance the low ends. It has a wide and accurate soundstage. It can produce stereo sound and overall, the sound profile is neutral. You can listen to music, podcasts even movies with this speaker. It can get very loud and is best for large rooms or crowds.

It has a battery life of 12 hours which is good to run for a day. For full charge you need to plug it in for 6.5 hours. Along with Bluetooth, it has a 3.5mm port, USB, mic, and guitar port. Bluetooth connects two devices at one and it is versatile in terms of ports. True Wireless Stereo allows you to connect to another JBL speaker for bigger sound.

It is one of the best battery powered speakers for both indoor and outdoor use. That said, you need to be careful with use as it doesn’t have any IP rating. We wish there were an app for the speaker with EQ settings.
