Every now and then someone will discover my blog and ask me to review a product.
I am always happy to do this. I received this sweet little item a little over a month ago.

With a twist the compact speaker transforms into a lantern.
The lantern works well and puts out a nice white glow…
It also can work as a flashlight with the lantern extended or with the lantern twisted back down.
The sound quality is not as good as my 200 dollar Bose Bluetooth speaker,
but, for its price, its pretty darn good!
I found myself carrying this around as I was gardening.
It would be nice for camping or an evening at the camp fire.
Bring it to the beach….
The volume is not loud enough for a big party, but it serves well for a small gathering.
I don’t have a smart phone so I couldn’t test it to see how it worked to answer phone calls via the speaker.
It did connect well to my iPad and iPod touch to stream music.
The speaker comes with a USB cord so that it can be put into any usb charger.
It takes about three hours for a full charge.
OUTAD 2-in-1 Outdoor Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker & LED Lamp equipped with Broadcom 3.0 + EDR Bluetooth, thus can be connected with any bluetooth-enabled device, such as smartphones, tablets, laptops and more. It is designed with a stylish, round-drum profile, which can slip easily into your bag.

In addition, its silicon pad in the bottom keeps a good performance of slip resistance.
