Outdoor Tech Big Turtle Shell launches in the UK

The Big Turtle Shell is a speaker designed for outdoor use thanks to a water-resistant and shock-proof shell. It can also be used as a power bank to charge external devices via USB.

Connection is via Bluetooth 4.0, meaning users can stream music from smartphones, tablets, laptops or other Bluetooth-enabled devices, with a range of up to 30 feet.

The Big Turtle Shell delivers 110 decibels of "clear audio power", its maker claims, and when laid flat sound is dispersed through 360 degrees. A 7800mAh battery gives a claimed 16 hours of playback.

The Outdoor Tech Big Turtle Shell wireless speaker is available now for £200.

Max is a staff writer for What Hi-Fi?'s sister site, TechRadar, in Australia. But being the wonderful English guy he is, he helps out with content across a number of Future sites, including What Hi-Fi?. It wouldn't be his first exposure to the world of all things hi-fi and home cinema, as his first role in technology journalism was with What Hi-Fi? in the UK. Clearly he pined to return after making the move to Australia and the team have welcomed him back with arms wide open.
