How can I connect to the Block Rocker?
Wirelessly connect to your phone or tablet, plug in your MP3 player or CD player, or sing along with your microphone - the choice is up to you. The ION Block Rocker comes with built-in Bluetooth to connect to your smartphone, tablet or other Bluetooth enabled devices – there’s no need for wires. If your device doesn’t have Bluetooth, you can plug in any device with a 3.5mm audio output into the rocker. You can even link two IPA67C speakers together wirelessly for True Wireless Stereo (TWS) sound. You don’t even need anything to connect to the Block Rocker with its built in FM/AM radio with 6 programmable pre-set stations.

How portable is this speaker?
This speaker comes with a telescopic handle and recessed wheels so it’s easy to move around without having to lift. The compact design means you can place it anywhere and it comes with rugged rubber corners. The Block Rocker fits easily into vehicles for transport, and with a battery life of up to 75 hours you won’t need to worry about power either.

How easy is the Block Rocker to use?
It’s easy to set up this speaker - simply connect your Bluetooth by using Near Field Communication (NFC) technology by tapping your NFC enabled device onto the top. Alternatively you can plug your device straight into the 3.5mm socket with the supplied cable. The speaker also gives you control over the play/pause, skip forwards and skip backwards functions on your Bluetooth device. There’s even a tray for you device and two USBs to power them while you’re listening.

Where can I use this portable speaker?
The Block Rocker can be used indoors in your front room, your bedroom or even a small to medium hall. The speaker can be used outside due to its rechargeable battery, giving you a completely wireless way to play your music. Plug the included microphone in and you will have a perfect speaker to use for birthday parties, karaoke nights or singalongs with the children.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from My fourth one and it still doesn't work!! First one: would turn off due to a flat battery, after an hour or so of playback and reading at 3/4 charged. Radio would only pick up one channel and be intermittent 2nd one: store sent me reconditioned replacement 3rd one: same problem as the first, suspect bad batch... 4th one: battery seemed to be better but has already started to show signs of the same fault, radio has stopped working altogether. Very fed up and disappointed as I'd been looking forward to buying one for a long time and feel totally let down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good sound and perfect size I bought this for my fitness class and it does the trick perfectly. Big enough to produce good sound but small enough to be carried or pulled by its handle. I just love it x

Does this come with the microphone (as shown in the pic)? Is it powerful enough for use as a speaker in a 12 x 18 metre marquee (to amplify peoples' speeches, and for background music)?
