Rugged Rukus Review

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Rugged Rukus by Eton is a speaker system that I really want to recommend and for the most part it delivers on what it promises but there is a persistent recharging issue that continues to dampen my enthusiasm for this portable speaker.



– great battery life

– loud sound for a small device

– recharges other portable devices via USB

– connects to audio devices via Bluetooth or audio jack


– solar panel seems prone to scratches despite solid build quality for the rest of the unit

– solar charging fails to charge internal battery


Last word:

Great idea in concept but issues surrounding the solar charging of this device has essentially taken away the most compelling aspect of this product.
