    Hi All,
    just a recommendation for a great bit of kit, small, not expensive and with a great quality sound - OK, it may not be in the same Bang&Olfson bracket but for the money it's excellent.
    Plays great music via Bluetooth, micro SIM and twins up as a good hands free system as it has a mike too. Has internal rechargeable battery that lasts in excess of the 5 hrs stated.
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BLUETOOTH...ories_AudioDocks_Speakers&hash=item5d3fa4649e
    Hope it helps,

    Regards,

    Trikeman. :Wink:

    I bought one recently and I agree, they are perfect for the motorhome with surprisingly good sound quality. The bluetooth works from a good distance away too :thumb:

    Having recommended the same item on here a few months ago I can only agree :Smile:

    I've fitted one inside a 1955 portable radio's empty case so I now have a genuine retro radio capable of FM, Bluetooth, Micro SD MP3 playback, with audio lead input and USB connections. It connects to Bluetooth from two rooms away even inside a radio case with a metal lid on it.

    The only thing that takes a bit of getting used to is managing all the functions from the one switch, for example FM channel scan.

    Trikeman: Does yours have the oriental voice that chips in to let you know when the battery is low?

    Yep, we use ours in the MoHo for background music and we mounted ours with some double sided on the drawer box so uses the drawers as the 'amplifier' for great base.:thumb:

    Trikeman, Fully agree. We have had one for a year now. Still performs brilliantly and does last ages without recharge.:thumb:

    I've been thinking of changing our base unit to a bluetooth one, but at this price it's a no brainer (especially as Liz now has an iPhone). And a good tip there too to stick in on a drawer unit.:thumb:

    Bluetooth speaker

    I bought one last year after seeing the one my granddaughter had let me see her "new" addition !! was suitably impressed so bought too.
    Great wee piece of kit, umpteen people asked me where I purchased it from and how does work !!
    Also can use it to listen to the radio.

    double bonus!!!!

    I also took a punt on this little beauty!

    but my double bonus was that I was on his Ebay (not knowingly darling xxx) and not mine!!!!!:Rofl1::Doh::thumb:

    oh and now we're off to Eden Camp today so this thread may be lost by the time we get back and he will be non the wiser! I might even save it and give it to him for Fathers Day ..................

    Thanks Trikeman.

    I had one of these before, but the Bluetooth facility wouldn't pair up, so I sent it back.

    I too have had a punt again though, as I thought the sound quality was excellent. I've also bought one of these from the same buyer for the new (ish) electric bike, so I know just how far I've got to pedal back, when the bike battery runs flat. :Rofl1:

    Cheers,

    Jock.
