Ecoxgear’s New Speaker Can Go Anywhere and Do Anything (Including Open Your Beer)

Ecoboulder
When you escape to the great outdoors, you need to bring the essential gear. Tent ? Check.  Food? Check. Beer? Check.Check. Music speaker complete with a beer opener? Yes, please.

Ecoboulder+ is the new portable Bluetooth speaker from Ecoxgear, a California-based brand that specializes in rugged audio equipment that can stand up to the elements.

The first thing you will notice is the sound. The Ecoboulder+ features an 8-inch, full-range speaker driven by 100 watts of total power. The Bluetooth range is effection up to 100 feet in open areas (meaning you may have some interference from surrounding nature).

“You’ll also be able to increase sound output by syncing two Ecoboulder+ speakers together through the “Ecoconnect” feature, which supports a connection range of up to 30 feet. This also works with any other Exogear products with Ecoconnect support. Users will also be able to access Siri or OK Google on their connected devices via the “Ecotalk” feature,” according to our brother site Digital Trends.

This is all great, but our favorite feature is definitely the drink capacity — yes, you read that right. The Ecoboulder+ has its own bottle opener and two cup holders that can fit 30-ounce ramblers.

Ecoboulder Plus Ecoxgear

But what makes the Ecoboulder+ stand out from its competition and its previous iteration, the Ecoboulder, is its durability. Ecoboulder+ is certified IPX7 waterproof — you can submerse it for up to 30 minutes in three feet of water. It also floats in water and comes with a waterproof smartphone holder and water-resistant pouch. The shell is UV-protected and dirt and dust proof.

You can take it pretty much anywhere thanks to a retractable handle (think rolling luggage) and off-road ready tires. Once  you find the perfect spot to set up shop, you can stay there for a while. The battery boasts 50 hours of playback time, which, as Digital Trends points out, is “more than enough time for the Ecoboulder+ to provide the background score to a weekend of camping.”

All this pizzazz comes with a price. The Ecoboulder+ retails for $250 and is available now via Ecoxgear’s online store.
