Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid workhorse!!! It's been used for last 8 months for fitness classes. Small, portable and light, fits in the sport bag. Battery last very long but because they are acid type, they need to be charge after each use for best performance. Our its been used for 3-4 hr everyday on 60-75% volume and its been charge every two days. Charge very qiuck. Sound: punchy, very loud for its size. Can fill the medium size hall with full body sound but need to be EQ because its distortion on higher volume. It's not an Hi-Fi sound but its clear enough. Very easy to operate thanks to the large volume knob, buttons and clear display. Bluetooth it's very solid.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A successful Big Lunch! I bought this primarily to be used to provide music for our street party. Battery operated was a bonus and we were pleasantly surprised that the volume was sufficient to be heard in the open air.

can it power a echo dot and play through bluetooth

Asked by: bobby
Unfortunately this would not provide adequate power for the Dot, as it requires 9W output and the on board USB supply is only 5W. You would still be able to connect devices via Bluetooth for output, so if you can locate an alternate power source, you would be able to connect the Dot and have voice control over the playback.

will the ion tailgater be big enough for line dance functions in a school hall

Asked by: melvynck
Unfortunately we are unable to guarantee full compatibility for this item in your intended application, This will depend on the size of the Hall . You could try - Trust Urban Fiësta Go PA Speaker with Bluetooth which offers a 40w output. Code: A83UU
