Our second spot belongs to another Audio Dynamix speaker. The Fusion V3 is an exceptionally well made portable speaker for its under £30 price tag. Powered by 2x5watt 50mm Kevlar drivers, the Fusion V3 packs a really good punch in a sleek and affordable package. Ideally suited for indoor use, this portable speaker has a more than usual 15 metre wireless range thanks to the built in Bluetooth v4.0 from CSR.

Despite being a budget Bluetooth speaker, the Fusion V3 manages to pack a 3000mAh rechargeable battery that gives a whopping 20hours of playback time- possibly more if you use the AUX cable included instead of a wireless connection. NFC one touch pairing makes connecting to the Fusion V3 a simple and hassle free task – just touch your phone to the “Fusion V3” label on the back of the speaker and you’re done. Full specs include:

Reviewed at £24.99 on Amazon

iClever IC-BTS04
Check Amazon price → CHECK PRICE

Last but certainly not least is the iClever IC-BTS04 Bluetooth speaker, this is a pocket sized wireless speaker that’s perfect for both indoor and outdoor use thanks to its IPX5 water resistance rating. Coming in at well under £30, the iClever IC-BTS04 has 2x5W speaker drivers in addition to a built-in microphone so you can take and reject calls anytime using nothing but the speaker itself.

Design wise, this portable speaker has to be one of the sturdiest and most durable we’ve tested so far – under its all aluminium body there’s a 1800mAh rechargeable battery that gives a more than adequate playback time of around 10 hours once fully charged. Considering that it takes under 4 hours to charge, 10 hours playback is excellent in my opinion.

Both wired and wireless connections are also available, for wired connections there’s an AUX port on the side and for wireless connections there’s Bluetooth 4.0 – which despite not being the latest version still does an excellent job when used in the recommended 10M range. Full specs include:

Dimensions 162 x 64.2 x 28.3mm
Speaker 10W (2x5W)
Playback Time Up to 10 Hours
