Elecom is going to release a palm-sized Bluetooth 4.0 monaural (mono) LBT-SPP20 series speaker in late April.
Although the LBT-SPP20 series is a very small mono speaker, it reaches 3W high-output and its twin passive radiators produce rich bass sound. You can experience more powerful and more three-dimensional sound than you expect.
After the speaker gets fully charged through a USB port with the accompanying USB cable, it is able to play continuously for 8 hours.
