How TikiTunes Work
The look of this speaker attracts users. It looks quite like a torch and it merge comfortably right in with ambiance. When I added 2 speakers to set up environment, it was lot easy. There is no complicated set-up or assembly needed. The set up is provided in the manual as well as in video demo. Charging is not written as pre-requisite, however I do recommend to charge the speaker before use. Connecting the speakers is easy like other Bluetooth speakers. Just pair with the media device and you are good to go.
As far as battery life goes, I was quite amazed with the longevity. I used it a couple of times while it was in test phase and played music consistently. I never received a ‘low battery’ warning before 6 hours. There is a small flap on the back of the speaker that covers the Micro USB port which ensures that the speaker remains water resistant.
TikiTunes is an above average Bluetooth speaker that comes with a up one notch performance with a one-of-a-kind ambient light. It fits in well with outdoor decor and is easy to pair to. However it comes with a price of $40 (at time of writing this article) slight high than average speakers, which is justified in my opinion considering the audio quality that is produced. I would definitely recommend to go for this Bluetooth speaker if you are willing for an ambient performance.
