Scosche announced their new member of the boomBOTTLE speaker family, the boomBOTTLE Plus at CES this year. We had the opportunity to speak to them for a quick highlight on what to expect. The boomBOTTLE series is targeted to the outdoor enthusiasts looking for a rugged speaker that can hold up to the extra wear. The new Plus comes with some added features to enhance this capability.
- IP67 rated making it water and dust proof as well as buoyant so that it can float in water if dropped (or thrown, tossed, flipped or slam dunked [gently]into your favorite body of water).
- 6000mah battery allowing not only 10 or more hours of sound, but you can also hook up your mobile device for a charge if your phone begins to run out of juice.
- Mountable via a 1/4″ thread on the bottom using a tripod or mount solution.
The boomBOTTLE Plus can also connect to other units for stereo sound and comes with an indoor/outdoor EQ for appropriate volume adjustments.
At the moment we do not have one to play with, so we can’t bring you a hands-on review and field test, but we can say that it looks pretty cool from what we have seen thus far.
At the moment, the Plus model is not available, but will be coming up shortly. Until then, you can still find the other boomBOTTLE products here on Amazon or via their website here.
