If you are in the market for a new Bluetooth speaker to enhance the audio from your smartphone or tablet, you might be interested in the new Eton Rukus Extreme speaker which has been design for use outdoors.
The Eton Rukus Extreme speaker is equipped with a 35 square inch solar panel to help you continue listening to tunes even when you’re away from the grid and unable to charge your devices.
Even without sunlight the internal battery is capable of powering the speaker for up to 12 hours continually streaming your tunes via Bluetooth to your smartphone, tablet or computer.
Once the lithium Eton Rukus Extreme speaker battery is fully charged owners can also use the provided USB connection to charge their smartphone, tablet or anything else supporting USB charging directly from the Eton Rukus Extreme speaker.
“Rukus Extreme continues the design language of the Rugged Rukus; larger, with an additional handle. This device has incredible rich sound with a wide frequency band, due to the addition of three passive radiators, one between the front speakers and two on the sides. These passive radiators provide the deep bass sound but because they are passive (do not receive an electric signal), they are an efficient way to make great sound.
Like its brother, Rugged Rukus, it has upward- facing speakers and a solar panel that faces the sun. The handle is comfortable for carrying but can also be used for attaching the unit to a backpack or hanging it inside a tent. It can also stand up on its face for compact storage. The black housing parts are high impact rubber (thermoplastic elastomer) over-molded onto the green super tough polycarbonate chassis. Rubber doors conceal connectors.”
The rugged Eton Rukus Extreme speaker is now available to purchase for $230.
