My New Travel Companion: Altec Lansing Baby Boom XL Portable Bluetooth Speaker
Having just moved to Florida after spending the first 50+ years of my life in New Jersey and New York, I realized that I need to have some waterproof items. So, to enhance my pool and beach time, I went out looking for some fairly priced Bluetooth speakers. I was looking for portable and lightweight, waterproof and of course with good sound quality and battery life.
I did what I usually do and headed out to Best Buy and ended up getting the very economical Altec Lansing Baby Boom XL Portable Bluetooth Speaker.
After I was able to figure out the very complicated plastic packaging (punch holes in both sides and press up with two fingers), and get the speaker out, I found paring with my LG Smartphone very easy. The volume controls and Bluetooth button on top serve as dual use purpose. The Bluetooth button is also pause / play or answer a phone call. The volume up/down is also advance or rewind. With a certified IP67 waterproof rating, the Baby Boom XL can handle being brought onto the sand, mud or even tossed into the pool – it will float!
Most importantly for me is the sound quality for an ultra lightweight speaker was excellent, with about 6 hours of battery life on a 2-hour charge. It makes this ideal for me to carry in my small laptop bag. It’s now with me wherever I go traveling up and around Florida.
This product gets my 4.5/5 star recommendation and I suggest you head out to Best Buy and get yourself an Altec Lansing Baby Boom XL Portable Bluetooth Speaker today. Or buy two units and pair them for true stereo sound!
