I’m not afraid to admit how excited I get when I find a cool little gadget that makes life better without blowing my budget. And that’s just what this teeny speaker (yes, that’s a speaker!) did.

The X-Mini capsule speaker packs a huge punch, making them perfect for poolside, desktop, or even in your kiddo’s room. You simply charge it on your computer or netbook with the USB end, plug it into your MP3 device, and then unlock the speaker so it pops up. You’ll be as amazed as I was as to how fantastic the sound quality is for such a teeny speaker. And if you want a little more sound, you can actually buy two or more and connect them.

I love how the cord wraps up underneath the X-Mini, which means once you’ve fully charged it, you’ll get up to 8 hours of battery life (or 11 hours for the Mini II) and no cords to have to search for and keep track of. Awesome. -Kristen
