Modern technology gives us many things.

Braven speakers provide great sound and can charge your devices


braventhumbBraven has launched a range of high quality portable speakers which can not only stream music from your smartphone but also charge it as well.

The speakers also offer speakerphone capabilities so you can also make and receive calls while your smartphone is paired to the device.

One thing Braven speakers have that other portable speakers don’t is a high capacity battery that can be used as a power bank to charge any USB device like smartphones, tablets, digital cameras, ereaders and portable gaming devices.

This is helpful especially for the frequent traveller as the speaker can replace bulky AC adaptors in your suitcase as well as providing high quality audio when you need it.

They are small enough to easily fit into any suitcase or carry bag so they can travel with you anywhere whether you’re travelling or on your way to a family picnic.

The three speakers in the Braven range have 6W output with custom extended range drivers to deliver quite an authoritative sound from its relatively small chassis.

Quality is impressive even at high volume with little distortion and a nice supply of bass as well.

It only takes seconds to pair the Braven speakers to a smartphone, a tablet, laptop or desktop PC to enhance the audio experience when listening to music playing games or watching movies.

There’s also a 3.5mm line in so you can connect devices using an auxiliary cable which can even be used to connect to other Braven speakers for an even larger sound.
