“This is a small but mighty little speaker! I was very impressed at the quality of sound and the clarity even when on high volume was spectacular! The bass was nice and not rattle sounding like other speakers it was a solid bass. I love that the speaker has a spot to insert a memory card so i can have all of my favorite songs on the go and right above that spot is also the charging port! I frequently go to the park with my kids and have the stroller and this fits perfectly wrapped around the handle this would also attach easily to a backpack, bike and sporting equipment like a treadmill! This would be a great item for a biker or hiker this is the speaker to take on every adventure! The charge time is quick and the lasting power of this little Bluetooth device is amazing! This is also perfect for hanging in my sons room with a set playlist of lullabies for nap time. I think everyone who buys this will for sure enjoy this speaker!”
“I have honestly wanted one of these little portable Bluetooth speakers for soooo long and just never grabbed one. Well the day has finally come! I saw this and wanted it so bad. So cute and versatile.
This speaker is a Selectec Sports Bluetooth Speaker in a beautiful sky blue. The outer layer is a very soft silicone, making it water, dust and shockproof (the silicone absorbs the impact to a certain degree). It’s really small which for me is a huge plus. I wanted something very discreet, easy to travel with, and just easy to store. I absolutely love the design of this speaker, the strap technology at the top is really great. Essentially allowing you to hang this speaker from just about any where! You can hang it in the shower, off your backpack/purse, or even your bike handle while you cruise around! This speaker can pretty much be used with just about any gadget, cell phone, tablet, computer. It can be hooked up via USB or you can tap into the Bluetooth function allowing it to be completely cordless!”
This small black water drop shaped Bluetooth speaker has become my constant companion. It had a loop which I use to hang the speakers on. So whether I am in the bedroom or kitchen and even the garden, we use it to listen to music constantly. It is supposed to be waterproof but we have not tested this. It’s sound quality is in stereo which is another reason I like using the Bluetooth speaker. The speaker come with an instruction manual and pairing it with my mp3 player or my iPhone was easy. The battery is rechargeable so it means that we don’t need to keep buying new batteries.

I purchased the Selectec Ultra-slim 10000mAh External Battery Pack because let’s face it, you can never have too many power banks. I have a few smaller ones but they are generally 3000-6000mAh. They do the job but if you want something to store more power and require less charging you really can’t beat this one. It’s less than half the price of some other power banks I was looking at with 10000mAh which made it a no brainer.
The power bank came pre-charged (mine was only at 75% but not a big deal). I was surprised how small it was and thought the storage level had to be a misprint but it isn’t. It is roughly the same size of my iPhone 6s (as you can see in the photos) which means it isn’t bulky or annoying if you have it in your pocket. I fully charged it and I was able to completely charge my iPhone 6s, my old iPhone4, my iPod touch, and my e-cig and it didn’t even drop below 75%. I’ve been using it to charge my Bluetooth speaker on my 1 hour ride to work, and then while at work constantly charging my iPhone 6 and e-cig (instead of plugging them into my laptop) and it is still above 50% with the 3rd light blinking. The only thing I don’t like about this is that if you have the usb cables plugged in (it has 2 slots) then plug in you phone or device it doesn’t automatically come on and you have to hit the power button, but again no big deal.
The plastic casing had a cheap rigid feel to it, and I think if I were to drop it from waste height onto a hard surface it would probably crack but hopefully I won’t find that out. If you really wanted to I’m sure you could find some kind of rubberized case to protect it, and since it doesn’t heat up it shouldn’t be an issue. Overall I am very happy with the purchase and recommend it if you’re in the market for a lightweight slim power bank.

This is a great product, the packaging alone lets you know its a quality product. The box is well made, one I will keep as it looks so good. It was well protected with the foam inlays and included inside was the micro USB and auxiliary lead and instructions.
It is a good size for travelling and is Bluetooth compatible with all my devices, It was quick to pair with all my devices including linking my Samsung via NFC.
The sound is very loud you can here it upstairs when the kids have there music playing, with no distortion. At the back of the device is the Aux & mini USB/DC port, the on off switch is also at the back. At the side is the NFC connection, you can control the volume and skip forward or backward on tracks using the controls at the front. Short press for volume and long press to skip tracks. In the centre is the pause/ answer and hang up calls button. Whilst exploring the features I changed the language to Chinese, but it was easy to change back by holding the Vol Plus button then tap the play button twice.
The speaker is so good hard to keep the kids away from it . If you have kids its you might want to let them know they need to be careful when touching the mesh at the front as it marks easily. Other than that it is a lovely product that charges quickly and lasts quite long before needing to be recharged.

Selectec Battery has been excellent. Here are few reasons why I like it.
The battery holds a lot of power. I am an in-home therapist and it stays in my car all week incase I need some more juice for my phone/tablet. I use it about 20mins a day and it’s always ready to go. Plug it in, push the butter and it’s charging. It’ charges pretty fast too. After a week, I recharge it, but there is still some juice left in the battery. The capacity is nice given the size.
The battery although a bit heavier than most, is solidly built. It feels good in your hand. The battery’s been tossed around a bit and hasn’t noticed any major/minor blemishes to the battery.
Areas of improvement are the power cord. The cord that came with it doesn’t work. There was too much play in the connection so it wouldn’t charge. However, with all the mini/USB cords I have, it wasn’t an issue finding another one.The indicator lights are nice blue color, but not too bright. It doesn’t over illuminate the whole area when checking how much juice is left. You have a flashlight option which is always nice.
I’ll take one star off for the cord USB charging cord not working. For me it’s not a problem, but for others who don’t have extra cords, it would be a hassle to locate/pay for an additional charger.
Yes, I’d buy one for my mom, dad, brother and girlfriend. (Get the discount code here)
I am a fan of Bluetooth speakers. I have a small collection of them and use different styles for different reasons. I have a large cylinder speaker that is great for outdoor use and I have a colored LED speaker that lights up with music. Music really puts me in a good state of mind and helps me think so I always have something playing in the background. Having a speaker that provides amplification to what my phone puts out just makes things easier for me. So, when I was given the opportunity to test out the Selectec Bluetooth 4.0 Speaker, I accepted quickly as it’s got a unique design and will fit nicely in my collection.
The Selectec speaker is a solid product. It’s made from heavy-duty materials and just feels strong. It’s smaller in body but has a big sound. It easily fills a room (my office is 10 x 10 and it sounded great there). The speaker is a pretty standard Bluetooth speaker. In addition to the Bluetooth connection, you can also plug in an auxiliary cable for your device. It’s a very versatile device in that respect. With it utilizing Bluetooth 4.0, I didn’t have any issues connecting my iPhone to it. It stayed connected and only took a few seconds to make the initial connection.
I love this speaker’s size. As I already mentioned, it’s small – 6.8 x 5 x 4.3 inches – but solid – it weighs 1.5 pounds. So, it’s not exactly what I would classify as ‘portable’ or for ‘on the go’. I see it more as a speaker that you keep on a desk or bedside table. It’s not something you would grab-n-go with. Because it doesn’t take up much space and is forward-facing, I think it’s ideal for an office or bedroom.
The Selectec speaker puts out a great sound. It’s clear and powerful – from such a small box. In addition to the standard speaker function, the Selectec speaker also has a built-in microphone for hands-free speaker phone calling. It’s nice to have that as an option, but not something I usually use. It’s a really nice option for a quality speaker. If you are looking for amplification for your phone or another mobile device, this is a good one to try out.
