For most people audio quality would be the single defining factor when choosing portable speaker, while for others it might be functionality and additional features. For me personally I would like a mixture of all three, I like speakers that offer a bit more than just audio playback.
I’m a fan of MicroSD and USB ports on a speaker but what I really love is a Bluetooth speaker with a built-in power bank. The power bank feature really comes in handy when you’re out and about and need a quick charge for your mobile phone. Unfortunately most portable speakers do not come with a built-in power bank, so we’ve had a look around and these are the best portable speakers with power bank we could find.
The Sharkk Commando+ tops our list for the best Bluetooth speaker with a built-in power bank. Primarily designed for outdoor use, the Sharkk Commando+ has a built in 6600mAh power bank and an average audio playback time of up to 16 hours. Full specs include:
|Power Bank Capacity||6600mAh|
|Playback Time||16+ Hours|
Veho VXS-001-BLK 360
The Veho 360 Vecto Bluetooth speaker is another really good portable speaker that has a built-in power bank. Powered by 2 full-range drivers and 2 radiators, the Veho 360 Vecto pumps out a total of 8 watts and has a power bank capacity of 6000mAh. Full specs include:

Audio playback is a respectable 10 hours with a generous audio streaming distance of up to 10m. Full specs include:
