Rugged outdoor tech gear is all the rage. With various cases, bags, iOS-compatible camping stoves, and all manner of accessories, you can rough it like a mountain man while still maintaining the luxurious lifestyle that technology has to offer.
ECOXGEAR is one of the rugged accessory makers on the market that is constantly releasing amazing new bits of outdoor technology. The company recently launched the ECOXBT, a wireless, Bluetooth enabled speaker that can be tossed into the lake and still be used as a speaker for conference calls.
The ECOXBT is waterproof and made from material that allows it to float instead of sink in water. The full-range speaker is Bluetooth-enabled to allow you to connect your iPad to listen to your music while rafting down mountain rapids.
It features a built-in rechargeable lithium battery with 10 hours of playback and a USB to AC power adaptor. The entire speaker is slightly smaller than an iPad and only a little bit heavier. It comes with a Carabineer clip so you can attach it to your backpack while hiking to the top of Mount Everest.
The speaker includes a microphone so you can talk to your buddies through Facetime while lounging in the pool at a tropic resort and not have to worry about getting your iPad wet. The tablet can stay protected inside your bag while the speaker floats alongside you.
You can pick one up for $129.99 from the company’s website today. It comes in all black, black and red, and black and safety orange.
