Performance and use
This Bluetooth speaker is perfect for listening to music from your phone while in the shower. It’s easy to set up, and you can use the speaker up to 30 feet (9 metres) away from the device you’re streaming from.
The speaker takes about 5 hours to charge using the micro USB charging cable, after which it will give about 8 hours of playing time, which should last you a few weeks if you only use it in the shower.
The speaker is set to Bluetooth mode by default, so it you mainly use it for the radio you will need to switch it to radio mode each time. The speaker is loud enough for the shower, but might not be loud enough if you’re using it elsewhere. The sound quality could be improved, but you can’t expect much for a speaker of the VTin Relaxer’s price.
The VTin Relaxer is great for streaming music or radio from your phone while taking a bath or shower. It has good sound quality and battery life.
It’s splashproof and can be stuck to a shower wall or tiled bathroom wall. Using Bluetooth, you can take calls from your phone without worrying about it getting wet.
If you’re just looking for a shower radio and don’t need Bluetooth, you might prefer one of these shower radios, as the VTin doesn’t offer great FM reception.
