Be aware. The battery may be dead and never charges
1 December 2018
What a disappointment. This was purchased for a special birthday gift and it doesn't work. We followed the instructions and charged before use BUT the first indication that something was wrong came when the unit turned itself off before fully charging. Then, when the mains lead was removed, the unit would not respond to the 2 second button push to turn it on. It works well with the mains lead plugged in but it switches off immediately after the lead is removed. There is evidence in audio forums that this is a common problem, where the battery has been fully discharged and cannot be energized.
The sound quality is excellent, if a little too warm and bass heavy but I like that style of sound for an easy listening experience at mid volume. Despite the quality of materials, manufacturing and sound, I would avoid buying this unit from Amazon and go direct to the manufacturer, where the customer service is better and you're more likely to get a replacement unit. The Amazon discount is not worth the trouble of having to return the faulty unit and reorder it again
