CES 2013: Scosches boomBOTTLE Portable Speaker Offers Music on the Go   boombottle 500x281

Outdoor Technology just recently revealed their new Turtle Shell portable speaker that can be mounted on your bike and now they’ve already got more competition. The Scosche boomBOTTLE is specifically designed to fit inside of your bicycle’s water bottle cage and connect to your mobile device via Bluetooth.

I’ll forgive the silly boomBOTTLE name because of the fact that it fits into your water bottle holder, which is undeniablely clever. Though it does beg the question of where your water bottle goes. The boomBOTTLE is made to withstand liquids, vibrations, and even physical abuse.

Of course, the boomBOTTLE works just as well off of your bicycle and Scosche advertises it for use in the gym, garage, or dorm room, but really there’s no place you couldn’t take it. Like the Turtle Shell, the boomBOTTLE also features a built-in mic for use a speakerphone. It will also last ten hours on a full charge. No word yet on when it’ll be available or how much it will cost.

The one of a kind speaker was designed with a durable, non-slip and shock proof TPU exterior, strong enough to withstand drops or vibrations caused from rough terrain riding.  The large rubberized buttons make it easy to skip tracks and adjust volume even during active use.

The IP4X rated splash proof casing protects boomBOTTLE from unexpected weather, sweat and other moisture.  A top flap opens to reveal safely hidden charging and audio ports.

The easily portable boomBOTTLE also makes for a great media speaker in the gym, garage or dorm room.  It delivers the same impressive acoustics when playing movies, TV shows, or games on a connected mobile device.

The dynamic speaker also includes a built-in microphone, for use as an enhanced speakerphone, capable of delivering crisp, clear echo-free phone conversations. A 3.5mm auxiliary input is also included for use with non-Bluetooth enabled devices.

boomBOTTLE will be on display along with all of Scosche’s award winning products and apps in the North Hall, Booth 3806 at the Las Vegas Convention center January 8-11th, 2013.

    Chalk this up to dumbest bike accessory ever. Forget the fact that I ride to get away from everything, If I’m heading out for a 3-4 hour ride, where am I supposed to put my second bottler? And if I showed up to my local club ride with that, at best i would get relegated to the back of the pack, more than likely sent home in disgrace.
