What is A Portable Speaker
A portable speaker is an audio device that can be easily carried around and usually includes built-in speakers, batteries, and wireless connectivity.
The most convenient way is to use Bluetooth technology to wireless connect to other devices, such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops, to play audio content.
These devices usually consist of one or more speakers and a battery, and have built-in audio amplifiers and tuning controls to provide high-quality audio performance.
In addition, portable speakers can usually be charged or connected to other audio equipment through a USB port or other interface, which is also very convenient to use.
They're designed to provide audio entertainment and easy music sharing anytime, anywhere, whether it's outdoor events, parties, travel, or home use.
