How long does it take to charge and how long does it last for?
Charging your HMDX Rave is simple. Just connect your speaker to a powered USB socket such as a phone charger. After three hours you speaker will be fully charged. Playback time is dependent on connection method, when connected via Bluetooth you can achieve up to four hours of music. When using a 3.5mm jack cable the HMDX Rave can provide an incredible 12 hours of playback giving you less time charging and more time to listen.

Is this speaker wireless and if so what is the maximum range?
No need to fuss around with finding wires, with the HMDX Rave you can connect your smartphone or tablet wirelessly. Using Bluetooth v2.1 technology you can enjoy your favourite songs and podcasts from up to 10m away. Set your speaker up in any room around the house or take it with you on your travels.

What if my device doesn’t have Bluetooth?
Your speaker won’t just play audio from your smart devices. Any audio device that features a 3.5mm headphone socket can connect to the HMDX Rave including MP3 players, laptops and PCs. Don’t just have great sound on your smartphone, have it on all of your devices.

How loud is this speaker?
Driven by two 30mm drivers rated at 1.2W each, the HMDX Rave offers a good volume boost compared to your smartphone’s speaker. At full volume this speaker can fill a medium sized room with sound, ideal for a kitchen or bedroom. Bass tones are subtle yet defined and mid-range frequencies stand out with great clarity. For a smooth and bright sound, look no further than the HMDX Rave.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Loud but not good I have no idea why this is listed as 2.4 watts total output as I estimate 6-8 watts total. The Bluetooth is a bit weak as I see it's an old Bluetooth model and the sound quality just doesn't cut it for me,not enough bass,too much top,slightly distorted sound and the quality is not there. I know it's cheapish and great that it has quite a few functions but the sound quality doesn't quite cut it for me.
