How loud is this speaker?
2W RMS output ensures a loud and well projected sound for a small room, perfect if you are looking for a speaker that doesn’t deafen the rest of the household. If more volume is required you connect multiple Kitsound Mini Buddy speakers together to increase amplification. A frequency response of 100Hz–20Hz produces a punchy bass and crisp treble tones, great for any genre of music.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cheap and cheerful Pros: very portable, cheerful design, surprisingly good sound quality and plenty of volume, seems to have decent battery life (straight out of the box I've played it for 5 hours so far and it hasn't run out yet). Cons: cable is very short (it doesn't say this on the box, and I assumed that more cable would pull out from the casing - it doesn't); charger cable very flimsy, and charger point is on the base, which is awkward; no info given about charge time or battery life, so it's trial and error. Overall: if you're looking for cheap and cheerful, it's a surprisingly good little speaker for the money.

How long does the charge on this usually last and does the volume that I'm playing music at effect the amount of time it takes for it to run out of charge?

Asked by: Jamesofthrones
About 1.5 hours at half volume it will be less at full volume.

So I got my mini buddy as a gift. It's pretty loud and i love it. But I have a good question. Do I charge it while it's turned on or off?
