Don’t damage your phone while camping; use LifeProof speakers for music needs

September 5, 2018

With smartphones, most people have access to an incredible music library wherever they go. But listening to that music without relying on headphones is another matter.

For those who want to enjoy their tunes while hiking, relaxing at the beach or sitting around a campfire, the speakers on your phone don’t offer much help. The Aquaphonics AQ9 speaker from LifeProof is just what you need for muddy, sandy or wet locations.

The small speaker features a built-in carabiner to attach easily to a backpack, and it’s sealed for protection against the elements. In fact, you can submerge it up to a meter deep for 30 minutes without any problems.

Using Bluetooth, you can connect up to eight devices to the speaker, and a built-in microphone lets you use it as a speaker phone. It’s designed to survive a three-foot drop, and the speaker even floats on water if you happen to fall in the river or lake.

The 16-hour battery life keeps you connected for the life of the party, and a USB port makes it easy to charge. At less than nine ounces, it’s practically nothing to carry to the campsite or beach.
