I have the ION Pathfinder which is very similar to this unit. They make a bunch of models with multiple options such as microphone, wireless charging for your phone/music device, USB jack for wired charging of other devices, water resist and waterproof models, multi unit pairing for stereo setups and even LED disco style lights!

What I like:
- battery life, easily go all day at mid volume, manufacturer claim is 100 hrs, never tried to run that long.
- volume: I use this outdoors all the time for public events and no problems making sure groups of 100+ can all hear it. Mine is the 100 watt model
- wheels and handle: my model has a telescopic handle and luggage style rollers to easily transport
- microphone AND Aux input. The mic in is a quarter inch phono Jack while the auxiliary in is a smaller 1/8 inch headphone style Jack
- LED bar: Yes it will change colors and pulse to the music, but I really like the solid white light at night which allows me to see a little bit in addition to listen to the speaker.
- water resistant: starts to rain, no problem, handles everything but submersion.
- easily replaceable battery.
- built in AM/FM radio for local weather updates
- There are two separate volume controls, one for the microphone and one for the master volume so you can balance the microphone to any background music or effects.
- two 5A USB charging jacks
- Bluetooth is easy to pair and has very good range, easily 30 feet outside.
- The charging cord is a simple power cord from a computer. No fancy AC adapters or proprietary jacks, just a very common cord used on most computer devices today.
- When paired to my iPhone, I have volume control both on the speaker and on my phone.

What I don't like:
- The roller wheels are hard plastic. I don't see them lasting as long as say a solid rubber unit.
- The microphone has an on and off switch but overall is rather basic and responds to movement with noises through the system.
- The casing is a rugged looking plastic, but all of those edges and lines create surfaces that are not as easy to clean when you use the speaker outside and it gets dirty.
- weight: My unit has large grip handles on the sides that make it easy to carry, but he quickly begin to realize why they put roller wheels and a telescopic handle on it. That lead acid battery inside is not a lightweight.
- The number of models and updates! When I researched the explorer, I found an article stating that two of them could be paired to the same device creating an instant portable stereo set up. Evidently, that was only on the second generation explorer speaker because I have the first generation model and it does not pair to another speaker.

In the end, I am extremely happy with the features, the battery life, the sound and the volume of my ION speaker. Considering that the very large battery helps the unit to easily double as a portable charging station and you can use a microphone with its own separate volume control, I have no problem recommending it to anyone. I did not get mine on SD, but at a local public outlet store and paid $70+ tax for a factory reconditioned unit. The condition was like new and the battery was holding a proper charge. I bought two, thinking the stereo linking would work, and when it did not, I liked it enough to not return it but instead took the extra one back to my house where I use it on a personal basis. Considering the cost of portable Bluetooth speakers, If you do not mind the fact that the Ion speaker is not portable enough to put in your pocket, For what it does do it is an incredible value!

I have the "ION Audio Tailgater Express" and love it. Use it in the shop as a rugged radio and bluetooth speaker. Radio reception sucks but I believe there is a way to wire in an external antenna, just have not opened it yet to wire one in.

I bought an ion to use at the drive-ins and the radio was terrible, ended up returning it (different model). No external antenna. I know many do not use fm anymore but something to keep in mind
This is exactly what I was looking at this for so good to know. I'm looking for a portable radio with decent bass to use at the drive-in, and this would've fit the bill if not for the the radio part. What did you end up going with?

I tried this for the same purpose and had the same negative experience with reception. I then tried about 4 other similar brands with even worse results. I finally just cut holes in a small ice chest and installed a cheap car radio and lead acid battery, which works great at the drive inn.

loudest Bluetooth speaker possible under $100?
From my research, a good place for you to start would probably be with the VTIN R7 speaker, W-King 50W/70W speaker, or the Bugani speaker. Maybe others have some suggestions because there are a ton of options out there but those three are readily available on Amazon. I personally think the VTIN R7 would be a fantastic choice when you consider dollars per watt. I have a 60W Veho M10 that is absolutely amazing but is more of a premium, decorative speaker and not as durable or as portable as the others. I lucked out and got it for $40 on a clearance event and only wish I had bought more.
Hopefully that gives you a good place to start

Interesting. I'm doing presentations at the veteran's military posts and need a way to show a PP presentation where the sound can be heard. I wanted to use my mega boom speakers, however they are a bit too low. I just looked at the VTIN R7 speaker. Cost is good... but still wondering. I had hoped to add a few BT speakers around the rooms we present at.

Those are super cheap for portable PA speakers. Wonder how they compare to a Behringer Europort MPA30 which is three times the price? None of these budget "PA" speakers is louder than a strong voice IMO.
Just used two of the Harbingers I posted at a benefit bingo tournament where there were 75 to 100 people in a banquet hall. No one complained of not being able to hear.

would this be good for adding a MIcrophone to make it a complete karaoke using our phone or ipad for songs from Youtube? If so, it would be great.

The VTIN R7 has once again added their $20 coupon on Amazon today. That makes it a steal at $50. However, unless you are using an app on your phone that turns in into a mic for your Bluetooth speaker, you may want to consider something with a dedicated mic. I'm sure someone has made an app that would allow a phone to be a mic for a Bluetooth speaker but I've not used one and could not speak to the quality you would get out of it even if the speaker was great

How loud is this? I am looking for the loudest speaker under $200. Something I can use to play music when I am out on the field running practice. I just got the AOMAIS speaker from amazon but didn't seem to be that much louder than my Megaboom which does not provide the sound I need.

Thanks! We've ordered the VTIN R7. Hoping it does the trick!

Speaking as someone who has admittedly owned more Bluetooth speakers than any one person should (premium and otherwise), I'm intrigued by any post for a speaker. However, I will say there are potentially better offerings available for less.
I actually just ordered a 120W Bluetooth speaker with touchscreen and two microphones for full karaoke function for $64 shipped from Sam's club auctions.
I like that this speaker has multiple functions like radio tuner to help it stand apart from some other basic Bluetooth speakers but some people will never use that. The microphone functionality is also a very specific-use functionality that may be exactly what some people are looking for.
If you only want the Bluetooth function/durability, look into the VTIN R7 on Amazon. It is also 50W and starts at $70 but practically every other week has a $20 coupon you can clip to make it $50 which is a steal. They are water resistant and support multiple paired units for surround sound. That means for $10 more, you could have stereo sound with dual 50W speakers.
Again, every speaker is different and this one has some features that may be the perfect mix for people. If you are going in just for a good sounding, high watt Bluetooth speaker, this may not be the best bang for your buck.
EDIT: I just wanted to clarify that I'm not knocking this product at all. My wife is a teacher and this would actually be perfect for her with the microphone function. I only want to add perspective for those who may only focus on the "Bluetooth speaker" aspect of the product.
Wow. Thank you
Any recommendation for home use karaoke for a huge living room? I don't need the Bluetooth input function nor the water proof function. and mainly wanted a karaoke speaker with audio output from a TV box style karaoke. I don't need this to be too portable and for sure don't need the battery. The lyrics with music video will be on the TV so I don't need a screen at all

Thanks!!
