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