*I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample for review purposes. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.*
Early last month, I brought you a piece on WEARUFOREVER, the new face of online shopping and a new approach at being an online retailer with the guidance and direction from its customers. (If you haven’t, go and check out the site asap, they have some great stock online including an epic UNICORN range!). Not to be limited to fashion and women’s clothing, wearuforever.com has branched out into the technology market and will be providing, direct to the consumer, the latest in technology and tech accessories. The name behind this technological brain child? TECHUFOREVER.COM
A NEW TECHNOLOGY PLAYER
Having had lengthy discussions with the anonymous entrepreneur behind the ‘UFOREVER’ brands and partners, I was fortunate enough to have received a few items intended for launch within the online store coming early May 2018. You will see future reviews of some of the bags I received but for the purposes of this review and TECHUFOREVER introduction, I will be looking at the VOLKANO SPLASH SERIES Bluetooth Wireless (Floating & Waterproof) speaker.
TECHUFOREVER proudly sponsored the product for this review as this speaker will be one of the online retailer’s flagship products, techuforever.com will be an online store for the people, by the people and like with the wearuforever.com brand, will welcome recommendations and requests for stock by its customers. The online store is not yet live but all social media’s are already fully functioning in preparation for the launch, as well as a giveaway of one of these awesome speakers which you will be able to find below.
What I do love about the business model that techuforever is offering is that the products are sourced by a reliable distributor whose sole purpose is to source the best and leading technology brands globally, these will then be passed on directly to the consumer on the techuforever online store – So these great products at great prices will be available and affordable!
VOLKANO SPLASH SERIES REVIEW
One of the great products to be launched for sale online is the Volkano Splash Series Bluetooth Speaker. You can imagine how absolutely excited I was to receive this little device, not only because of how much I love music but because of how much I love listening to music in the bath! With this IPX6 Waterproof rated speaker, this was now possible!
For those who didn’t know, like me, I googled what IPX6 means and basically your speaker is going to be safe from powerful water jets so if you are fortunate enough to have a jacuzzi spa bath and happen to put your speaker in front of one of its high pressure jets, you will be fine! For little old me and my standard bath tub, I had nothing to worry about.
The packaging is smooth and sleek, #allblackeverything (Just the way we all know Shevy likes it!) and has all of the specifications and features at quick glance :
- Aux-in port for connecting to non-Bluetooth devices
- Connect to Bluetooth enabled device to play your music
- IPX6 Waterproof, perfect for use outdoors, at the pool or in the shower
- Make or take calls with the speaker & built-in mic
- Built-in rechargeable battery, charged via Micro USB
On unpacking the speaker, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the speaker despite its intended low price point (Below £30). The 180mm x 65mm gadget is externally rubberised giving it a smooth feel and the cable ports are protectively covered by a rubber cover at the back of the device. The power and – / + switches on the top of the speaker are very ‘clicky’ which I like, it doesn’t feel like the buttons will get stuck or jammed.
I plugged the speaker in to charge using the USB cable and the LED light was illuminated red for the duration of the charge, the charge takes approximately 4 hours and the light goes off once done. The little instruction booklet was super helpful and had all of the information I needed to use and pair my speaker properly.
The sound quality of this speaker is excellent and I was really surprised at how loud it actually plays, with a bluetooth range of 10m it is easy to keep your device safely away from the water. While you cannot reply to texts or update your Facebook status, you can take and make calls as well using the built in microphone!
Overall this is a fantastic speaker, I absolutely loved how durable it is and how great the value is at the extremely affordable price point.
