Goal Zero are becoming well known for their batteries and Solar chargers, and this self-contained battery and speaker is sort of an offshoot for the festival, garden or picnic crowd.
Made as a padded zipper case, somewhat like a large glasses case, the Rock Out Speaker contains a simple 3.5mm jack cable and USB port. You charge it up via USB and connect it to you iphone, ipad, ipod or any other device. Simple.
The sound is pretty good so far, but we’re putting it to the test this coming weekend.
