I've had a number of bluetooth speakers. None of them lasted for more than three month on my motorcycle. One with a weak handle lasted less than a week when it fell on the road.This one is the loudest and the handle is sturdy. When it rains I hang a plastic bag upside down over it.The control buttons are located within easy reach while driving. Of all speakers I've owned recently, this one was the cheapest, 550 Baht (US$ 15).
