Music can transform a solemn event to an upbeat experience, of course, depending on the music you play and the company you’re with. And while nature sounds like chirping birds and waves hitting the lakeshore are calming, sometimes you just need to crank up that playlist to lift spirits of your camping accomplices.
However, electricity is hard to find when you’re out on the grass, and even if you’re staying in a cabin, most outlets are just too far out. We have found 3 different speakers that you should consider taking on your next vacation getaway.
- Origaudio’s Rock-It
This little accessory that has a rechargeable battery won the investors’ hearts on a Shark Tank episode, and probably yours as well. You basically attach this device to anything that’s hollow, like a solo cup or a styrofoam cooler box, and it turns it into a speaker! It’s tiny, doesn’t need batteries and connects to any device with a standard headphone jack.
- KINGLAKE’s Waterproof Wireless Bluetooth Shower Speaker
While it is originally intended for use in the shower, its waterproofing and suction-cup-backing allows you to use it just about anywhere, like a pool or close to a lake. It connects via Bluetooth, so there’s no wiring to handle, and it can even pick up and hang up phone calls from your phone if you have it connected!
- Bose SoundLink Mini
Looking for something with just a bit more punch? This speaker is a little larger than the others, but it’s still small enough to fit a travel bag. It is sturdy, packs a big sound and charges via a charging cradle, which could be a little inconvenient especially while traveling. But for the price and quality, it’s worth the trouble.
