Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is the Goal Zero Rockout Speaker. I got mine originally from my friend Josiah Wallingford at a TSP event barter blanket about three years ago, I have no idea how long he had it but after years of use it is still running strong.
Here is the thing, I know that anything with a rechargeable battery, even a lithium ion one like this will eventually wear out but at 25 bucks with free shipping I don’t really care. And I will be honest it is not the high fildiety amazing sound of my Bose Soundlink, but that one is 300 bucks and this little guy again just under 25.
Besides I am not taking my 300 dollar Bose to the sandy beech, or tossing it in my carry on bag, or hanging it off my day pack on a hike. Make sense? I have used this little speaker for so much. Like in West Virginia we were watching youtube videos on a laptop and could not hear really well, plug this in and everyone could enjoy The Neature Walk! Which was kinda neat!
Many phones (my Iphone 6s for instance) will fit inside it and that will make your phone very protected. If your device doesn’t fit inside or if you don’t want it in there, just zip it up with the wire out the side.
On that, this speaker actually sounds better if you close it up when it is playing. And stand it up on its edge, or hang it from something. Please ignore the reviews by the morons saying to “mod it” by pulling the speakers out. As you can see in my video below the sound is just great, if you use it the WAY IT IS MEANT TO BE USED.
Simply put for 25 bucks, I don’t know anything this versatile, this rugged, this flexible, that lasts this long on a single 2 hour charge. So if you always want to have a good, reliable external speaker for any and all devices with a 3.5 mm plug, check out the Goal Zero Rockout Speaker and I think you will find it to be an incredible value.
