Portable and long lasting, the Kitsound Impulse docking station can bring your music anywhere around the home. Charge your iPod or iPhone 5 using the lightning dock to ensure your devices are always ready to use. A portable design allows you to use your speaker wherever, at home, with friends or at work.

How is the speaker powered and how long does it last for?
You can power the Kitsound Impulse in two ways. The first is via a USB socket such as your smartphone charger. While powered from the mains you can charge an iPod or iPhone via the lightning connector. Alternatively you can insert AAA batteries and enjoy up to 15 hours of playback. Battery power gives you freedom to play your best tunes anywhere

What devices are compatible with the speaker?
Any Apple device with a lightning connector can slot directly into the front of the speaker. For older Apple products, MP3 players or other smartphones simply connect via a 3.5mm jack connection. No matter the device, this speaker can accommodate.

How loud is this speaker?
3 W output gives you a well driven sound, loud enough for a small room or quiet environment. A frequency response of 90Hz-16kHz provides a punchy bass tone and good clarity from higher pitches. Suitable for all genres of music, the Kitsound Impulse is an excellent choice for easy listening.
