Camp­fire Tunes

Sound & Vision - - OUTDOOR IMMERSION -

Some por­ta­ble Blue­tooth speak­ers claim to be wa­ter­proof, but few mod­els can en­dure the rig­ors of a camp­ing or kayak­ing trip. Ecoxgear’s rugged Ecoslate ($149), in con­trast, is a Blue­tooth speaker that’s de­signed to live out­doors. Along with be­ing wa­ter­proof, the Ecoslate can float, and it fea­tures heavy-duty rub­ber cor­ners to pre­vent dam­age when dropped. A built-in lithium-ion bat­tery lets you play mu­sic for up to 12 hours, and it will charge any de­vices con­nected to the speaker via USB. A 2 x 10-watt amp pow­ers the Ecoslate’s full-range driv­ers, and you can wire­lessly pair up two speak­ers for stereo play­back. When the camp­fire dies down at night, the Ecoslate’s 200-lu­men wide-beam lantern will also light your way back to the tent, where you can play tunes in the dark us­ing its back­lit con­trol but­tons.
