Sometimes, you need speakers that are better than the ones that are built into your mobile device. It doesn’t matter how good your Android or iOS tablet is, you can’t beat an actual speaker. The Soundcast: VG1 might be the perfect one to take with you. It has a battery that lasts up to 15 hours, is waterproof and shock resistant, and even can act as a hands-free speakerphone that plays nice with Siri Commands. There are even on-board controls, in case you are listening to it and your phone isn’t nearby. It is $149.99.
