Outdoor Tech just launched the Turtle Shell 2.0, a rugged, portable wireless speaker with 16-hour battery life, louder sound and Bluetooth 4.0. The speaker looks the same as the original Turtle Shell but has upgraded drivers, the latest audio codecs, an advanced CSR Chip, and even longer battery life.
Featuring Outdoor Tech’s patented triangle-themed construction, the Turtle Shell 2.0 provides omnidirectional room (or camp site) filling sound and the tough matte coated surface is built to withstand dust, water and shock at the IPX6 level– ideal for any action adventure or even the daily adventure of your shower. Two speakers and a passive bass port pump out 96 decibels of high quality sound, 25 percent louder than the original model, expanding the Turtles domain to larger venues and bigger groups.
The new Bluetooth 4.0 enhancements include a batter level ‘fuel gauge’ displayed on the source device, voice prompts to let users know what’s going on, and minimal power consumption. Users can get about 16 hours of play time on average via the rechargeable lithium-ion battery.
The Turtle Shell 2.0 still has its signature camera thread allowing it to attach to tri-pods and a slew of standard camera accessories as well as the optional Turtle Claw bike and all purpose mount. The new suction cup feet at the bottom prevent jumping when your bass heavy tracks start to kick with all that new audio horsepower. Weighing in at just 0.65 pounds, it has a wireless range of up to 32 feet and can be charged via any micro USB cord.
