Eton announced the Rugged Rukus, a lightweight, solar-powered, Bluetooth wireless speaker that enables you to stream music outdoors and never run out of power. It features an IPX4-certified, splash-proof design and the ability to play music while simultaneously keeping your hand held device charged and ready for use.
Featuring the ability to pair with any Bluetooth-compatible device to play music with a single touch, Rugged Rukus includes two full-range speaker drivers that deliver crystal clear stereo sound. With the power to charge the internal lithium battery via the 20 square-inch high-efficiency solar panel or AC adapter, Rugged Rukus also has the added bonus of a built-in USB port that enables you to charge your smartphone, tablet or computer while you listen to your favorite tunes. Five hours charging in direct sunlight will allow for 8 hours of continuous music play and device charging, day or night.
Extremely durable, Rugged Rukus also features carabineer-ready loops, making it perfectly portable for outdoor adventures.
“With its sleek, splash-proof design, Rugged Rukus is perfect for those that want to take their favorite music anywhere and everywhere,” said Esmail Hozour, CEO of Etón Corporation. “Making sure that your smartphones stay charged while out camping or on the trail is essential, and we think Rugged Rukus is the perfect solution.”
