Hardly larger than an iPhone, the Turtle Shell wireless boombox
by Outdoor Technology is designed to resist dust, water, shock, and
presumably, a tech-unfriendly toddler. At this size it looks like a
great lightweight option for toting around for a family vacation. You
can even mount it on a tripod or with a carabiner, should you want to
hang it from the top of your camping tent or maybe even a stationery bike.
a built-in mic for speakerphone calls, and gets amazing early reviews
for sound quality–which is rare for such a small speaker. I’m kind of
over those “cute” little speakers that sound like some Fisher Price toy.
Plus the rechargeable battery should give you about 9-10 hours of sound
which isn’t too bad, and around 10 days of standby time. And boy I love the seven colors.
It’s not super cheap at $150, but it seems like a fantastic investment or holiday gift. Especially with that whole child-proof aspect. –Liz
