Connecting the device was pretty straight forward, just turn it on and your phone, computer, or other bluetooth device will quickly see the speaker and allow you to connect. I will admit, I did have some difficulty connecting to my Chromebook. Despite it already being connected and playing the music, it kept giving me a message to connect. I did not have these issues with my Nexus 6P.
I also did have some issues with changing the volume from the speaker. It seems to have a delay so I did not think the volume was adjusting when it actually was. Despite these minor issues, the speaker put out a quality balanced sound, not too much bass and not too much treble. I was also impressed by how loud the speaker could get without distorting the music.
As mentioned, this is a waterproof device, so it can be used in the shower, on the boat, out camping, or hanging by the pool.
Overall, at a price of $21.99 I think this is a great deal and I would recommend this to anyone looking for a portable waterproof bluetooth speaker.
I was provided a free Mpow Buckler Speaker for testing and review and was asked only to give my honest review.
