Eco Extreme Speaker

Pick your color: black, yellow, blue, green, or pink. This sturdy waterproof speaker case will serve you well in wet circumstances. Personally, I use my in the hot tub, but it would be great for fishing, boating, skiing or wherever there is the possibility of water damage to a digital device such as an MP3 player, iPhone, iPad, Android or other phone with audio output.

Two hefty latches with button locks on the right side secure a gasket seal tighter than a coffin. Inside a compartment measuring 6 1/4 x 3 1/2 inches will accommodate just about any digital device you want to tuck in there.

An elastic edged net secures the device to keep it from slipping around inside on the left. Or it could serve as a storage pocket On the right there is a battery compartment that requires three AA batteries for power. Batteries last 30 hours. On the right top is a powerful, 2 inch, waterproof speaker. There is also a cable that attached to a 3.5 mm jack on your device.

The shockproof polycarbonate outer shell forms a floating, waterproof case with a flat bottom that serves as legs for standing upright. At the top is a 2" carabiner clip for attaching to a lanyard or making the unit secure so it doesn't float away.

While you should not expect stereo symphonic sound, the audio quality is certainly acceptable while sitting in a boat or a hot tub or while working in the garden.

This accessory could save your bacon or at least your digital device. I am please to give it a high recommendation.

Protecting your pocket pal does come at a price, and the prices I've seen vary dramatically  from as high as $89 to as low as $38. You can even buy them used or refurbished on Amazon for as low as $28.
