The Anker Soundcore 2 delivers up to 24 hours of wire-free listening from its built-in battery, and is designed with bass-boosting tech, to help make sure you can get a fairly full sound from a compact speaker. 

It's really quite small (16.51x5.59x4.57cm) and weighs 357 grams – it's maybe pushing it to call it pocketable, but it can definitely slip into a bag without causing you any problems. And it's waterproof to IPX7 rating, which means it can be totally submerged in up to 1m of fresh water for up to 30 minutes, so there's no problem if it gets splashed to takes an accidental tumble into a pool. It also makes it perfect for the bathroom.

Anker's products have always had a reputation for offering major bang for your buck, while being much better-made than their low price might suggest. No one's going to claim that you get audiophile quality from a speaker costing this much, but what you do get is fun and clear audio quality that's great for tunes in the garden, on a hike or in the bath.
