We’ve reviewed the Braven 600 previously and, yesterday, we spent some hands-on time with the BRV-1.

The speaker is rugged, water-resistant, and “built for the outdoors”. 10 hours of playtime thanks to the 1200mAh battery means you’ll get plant of time to listen to tunes on the 5W speakers. And because the BRV-1 is “protected from rainfall, water jets, and water splashing”. It is not, hover, intended to be submersed completely in water. We put the speaker to the test.

There’s much more to learn about the $169.99 speaker and that can be accomplished here on the Braven site.
