I can barely get out of bed without music, so when the Scosche BoomBottle H2O showed up, I plugged it straight into the laptop to charge, then turned on 2 Live Crew’s “Hoochie Mama” for a test drive.
Don’t you judge me.
Happily, the BoomBottle H2O performed admirably for a capsule the size of a beer can. While I couldn’t feel my internal organs rearranging (someday!), lower registers thumped without drowning the highs or muddying the mids. Amplification is plenty, whether you want to passive-aggressively annoy the construction crew next to your home office (ahem), lounge lakeside with your posse after a hike (it’s waterproof and it floats) or crank out some extra motivation on a bike ride.
The shape slides neatly into a standard water-bottle cage, so if you’re a CamelBak type of girl like me who rarely stows water on your bike frame, the ability to separate the speaker from a sweating hydration bladder and sticky energy-gel wrappers is genius. The speaker also comes with a tiny carabiner that locks the unit onto your pack so you can bump tunes on a fall hike or ski with it on a powder day.
With up to 11 hours of battery life, the BoomBottle H2O also has the juice to go as long as you do — and we all know how much it sucks to run out of jams around the campfire. Grab yours at scosche.com. (Dancing Sasquatch not included.)
