We're always fascinated by USB accessories and just how small they're getting. USB accessories from a few years ago look prehistoric to the ones that are available now. Especially when you can get a USB speaker in the same finish as C-3PO.
The Rechargeable USB Card Speaker is the size of a credit card, but is supposed to pack quite the punch. The website boasts that it's really great for traveling and we bet it is. After all, if you're traveling with a small speaker, you're probably not looking for mind blowing sound quality.
The price is a little steep at $74, but maybe we should keep the heavyweight metal body in mind. The body comes in three finishes: Gold, Silver and Black. The speaker comes with a carrying case, connection plug and USB charging cable. Charging takes 2 hours via USB and will result in 5 hours of continuous play when plugged into any device compatible with a 3.5mm jack connection &mdash essentially most devices.
We're really liking this speaker, not only for its aesthetics, but also for its practicality. We're going to be traveling a lot soon and it'd be nice to have somewhat of a portable speaker to take along for the ride.
