It’s summer time. A time for outdoor BBQ’s, camping trips, and the fear that your phone will die and you’ll have to interact with people on a face to face level. Don’t despair, Outdoor Tech’s Big Turtle Shell is here to save you.
We covered the Boombox, a sort of mini version of this device a while ago. It’s still a Bluetooth speaker, but this upgrade has some important additions. Namely a larger size and an amped up battery life that now clocks in at up to 16 hours. A massive improvement on the Boombox’s 9-10 hours.
All that juice isn’t just for pumping out sick tunes while jumping from cliffs into crystal pools of water and playing volleyball. It also can charge most mobile devices, meaning you’ll be safe to post your latest summertime selfies on Facebook (provided you’ve got service). You can’t drop it in the lake and expect it to still work,but it is waterproof enough to withstand some splashing. Also dust and shock proof, features NFC and comes with an internal mic for hands-free goodness. The price is $229.95 and it may be just the thing to set the summer right.
