I can't tell you the number of times I've wanted to listen to my MP3 Player or iPhone using portable speakers without having to plug the device into an external speaker system!
Recently, I found the OmniTech mini speaker, the hottest tech toy on the market for under $10!
The sound is absolutely fantastic, incredible bass and no distortion - What makes these portable mini speakers so fantastic is that it can be charged so that is supplies it's own power!
The instructions say that it takes four hours to charge, but it only took me two - simply connect the USB to your computer and it starts charging; once the red light turns blue, you're ready to go. It comes with an on/off switch, volume control, and with a twist it expands to deliver you the bass and sound that you would expect to hear from a high end sound system!
This is a stand alone speaker and works with just about any device, iPhone, iPod and other MP3 players, mini recorders, Droid, etc and is available only at staples, for $9!
I searched the internet and could not find any reference to this portable mini speaker, but for your reference, the label says:
Batt: Li-ion 3.7V/300mAh
Charge: DC 5V
I highly doubt these speakers will last long, so stop by now and pick one up - it makes an awesome gift!
Was shopping for Christmas Gifts at Toysrus and found these iHome portable mini speakers on sale for $19.99 and appear to be the exact same, just different name. Competitive out there! Here is a picture:
Although I could not find much information about OmniTech Speakers, I did find a ton on iHome by doing a search for iHM7BC Portable Multimedia Speaker; prices ranged from $19.95 to $29.95.
In short, $9 is a steal!!!
