Review: I’ve been using my Kindle a lot to listen to music and audio books. And while the speakers are OK, they aren’t great. And on those occasions that I want music when in the bathroom or kitchen, places I don’t like to take my kindle, I wanted to find a bluetooth speaker to amplify the sound. When I saw the TurnRaise WaterProof Portable Bluetooth Speaker for review, I knew I had to give it a try.

The speaker came in a small, well protected package. I pulled out all the pieces (the speaker, directions, snap hook, suction cup and power cord) and immediately plugged it in to charge. It took a couple hours for that first charge, probably mostly since it was plugged into my laptop rather than a outlet.

After it was charged, I started playing around with the speaker. I got it turned on but then was stuck. Every time I tried to turn up the volume, I’d skip tracks. It was time to go read the instructions. You can tell that the instructions were not written by a native English speaker, but it was understandable. Once I knew what I was doing, it was time to play with speaker again. At this point, I fell in love.

I carried the speaker around my apartment while playing music. I took a shower and used the suction cup attachment to fix the speaker to the shower wall to enjoy some music in the bathroom. Then I continued to listen to music while lounging around. I easily played it for several hours and it was still going strong. I was very happy with the range of the bluetooth as well as the battery life. It being waterproof (although I wouldn’t suggest submerging since it’s only a flap covering the power outlet) was an extra perk.

I’ve been very happy with my TurnRaise WaterProof Portable Bluetooth Speaker. It comes in a variety of cool colors (I do like my teal blue, although it’s listed as deep blue) and I look forward to having more reasons to use it. I’m especially looking forward to pool season…
