Bad battery life

Following instructions and providing full charge the initial time i used it lasted about 1.5 hours on (not 10 hours). Now 3 months in it lasts 5 minutes. Even when plugged in i run into issues of it shutting off .

Hi Cesar,

My apologies for the battery issues experienced with PID 10950. Unfortunately, it appears as though you may have received a defective speaker. If you would like, I can help setup an RMA for a replacement. We offer a one year warranty for this product and obtaining a replacement would be of no additional cost to you. Please let me know if you want to proceed. Sorry again for the trouble and I hope this helps!

It's OK. Sounds blown after 4 months.

Pros: Lightweight. Battery lasts forever and a day.

Cons: Sounds hollow. Has since day one. Bass has always been weak. Four months in and it's blown.

6/10 is on point. Granted I knew I wasn't getting a Bose, but I wasn't paying that price either. The 6/10 is largely due to the time before blowing out when bass wasn't a big driver in the performance of the speaker. It gets loud enough but it won't blow you away either. It being lightweight has been a big plus for transport as I keep it in my backpack and back to loudness, it will definitely fill a hotel room easily.

But there is no fullness in sound to this device either. It simply does the job. Not terribly but not awesome either. Now i just will have to listen to the crackling from a ruptured speaker when any semblance of bass tries to hit. Hopefully this is an anomaly as I've been overwhelmingly bullish on all my other Monoprice products.

Battery life extremely short

  • Anonymous,
  •  West Peoria, IL

Pros: Compact size

Cons: Short battery life. Charged multiple times at required amount of time. Playtime was never the length advertised and shortened each time unit was charged.

At first I thought my charger was the issue, but I've used multiple cables, chargers, etc that charge all of my devices properly. Red charge light doesn't stay on for long periods of charge time. I would continue to charge unit to it's required charge time only to have it shut off after an hour or so. Only spent $19.99 on this unit, so I'm not too upset about having to leave it plugged in to use, but it defeats the portable/wireless feature I purchased this for.

Thank you for your review. Approximately how long does the battery last? If you want did you want to try a replacement to see if it'll work better? Please let me know, thank you!

Great for price

  • Jason,

Pros: Works as expected. Battery life seems to be decent too.

Cons: NFC doesn't seem to work with Samsung S4. I think I saw another review where the NFC didn't work.

We bought this for my daughter to use to listen to music while in her room. We recently decided to get her a cell phone (her first), and instead of investing in a radio for her room, we went this route instead. We are happy we did. She can take this speaker with her anywhere she wants, including in the backyard when she wants to play in the pool with friends. It isn't really loud enough to overpower the pool pumps, but it works great when she is laying out to dry and it it near her.

Not a bad speaker for the price.

Pros: battery life, price, decent sound quality

Cons: As everyone says, the lady's voice is much too loud. HELLO! PAIRING! YOUR PHONE IS CONNECTED!

For the price of $19.95, you can't beat it. At $34.95, maybe. I don't have much experience with bluetooth speakers other than the $300 Bose. This is a great speaker for quiet areas as it doesn't get that loud, but the sound is much better if you use an equalizer like the one in Spotify. The sound can be a little "muddy" without an EQ..
