ECOXGEAR has revealed yesterday its new waterproof Bluetooth speaker known which is both IP68- and MIL810G-certified and features a USB battery charger for both smartphones and tablets as well. Named ECOSTONE, this accessory "is designed to be the world’s most rugged and reliable portable Bluetooth speaker" and can be already purchased from US Cellular, Cabela's or Amazon.com.

According to the official press release, ECOXGEAR's ECOSTONE "can withstand anything from being 100% submerged in water to a sandstorm in a desert with temperatures up to 140°F" thanks to its rubberized shockproof case, while audio quality is ensured by the combination of front speaker and rear mounted subwoofer. It also features a built in microphone and a 1/4-inch camera-style threading mount, while a suction mount can be purchased separately.

ECOXGEAR ECOSTONE offers up to 12 hours of battery life and also includes a battery indicator and a LED flashlight. Available colors are Black, Blue, Orange and "Real Tree." Its price is $149.99 USD (Amazon also offers free shipping) and will hit retail stores this fall.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
