    My son picked one up last week and sound wise its great but he cannot find any information on how to know when its charged, Its done through a micro USB cable and there is a red light on the side that is solid when we put it on charge but does that mean its charged, does it turn green does it flash we have no idea

    Anyone ?

    It was £8 (Pound/Sterling) and I have to say that for a small cheap speaker its pretty good he paired it with his phone and the sound quality and distance he can be away from the speaker is pretty nice

    Had an email from the company apparently its just timimg, about 5 hours will give you a full charge the light that comes on when its charging just stays on all the time

    Well that's a bit dumb. How did they expect you to know when it was charged then? LOL!

    At least they mailed you back though. Good customer service.

    Apparently the Apple Homepod is hot as hell right now.

    Yeah I guess for that price you can expect such problems.

    I've seen that speaker before. From Dynamo... or something. Can't remember the name.

    Doesn't the bottom clear ring above the controls light up? I recall seeing it glow Blue and/or Green when it's on.

    The top and bottom ring above and below the Silver,Red or Blue both light up and change colour as music plays

    I wont lie I was so impressed with my son's (Apart from the charging thing) that I have ordered one for my wife and I to take on our camping trips .... Battery life after charge is about 5-6 hours and I can load all my music onto a Micro SD card and play it from that ... it has a nice solid weight and the speaker is pretty good

    JBL and a few other brands have speakers like that, I think they're quite cool actually. I've seen a couple in the metal.
