About the product All-purpose, all-weather companion jbl flip 3 is the next generation wireless speaker in the award-winning flip series. It is a comprehensive portable Bluetooth speaker that delivers surprisingly powerful, room-filling stereo sound everywhere. This ultra-compact speaker is powered by a 3000mah rechargeable li-ion battery that offers up to 10 hours of continuous playtime. Sporting a durable, splash proof fabric and available in 8 vibrant colors, flip 3 is the all-purpose, all-weather companion that integrates music into every aspect of your life - from tabletop to poolside, from sunny mornings to rainy nights. Flip 3 also features a built-in noise and echo cancelling speakerphone for crystal clear conference calls, and jbl connect technology that can wirelessly link multiple jbl connect-enabled speakers together to amplify the listening experience. Just because it’s small doesn’t mean it has to sound that way. The SoundLink Mini Bluetooth speaker II delivers full sound with dramatically deeper lows than you’d expect from a speaker that fits in the palm of your hand. And because it’s wireless and ultra-compact, it’s easy to take Bose sound anywhere. The built-in speakerphone lets you take calls out loud with clear sound. And voice prompts make Bluetooth pairing easy. Plays unplugged for hours and can be charged from most USB power sources.
