Anker has announced a new line of portable speakers under its Soundcore home audio brand. Dubbed the Rave series, the high-watt speakers are aimed at providing the soundtrack to your next outdoor summer party.


The standard Rave speaker costs $200, is splash resistant, and comes with dual two-inch tweeters and two 5.25-inch woofers that combine to deliver 160 watts of sound.

Next in the line-up is the $150 Rave Mini, an IPX7-rated waterproof speaker that packs a two-inch tweeter and identical woofers, and offers 80W output for up to 18 hours on a single charge.


While both of those models aren't set to launch in the U.S. until the summer, Anker does plan to bring two additional Rave speakers to market as early as this spring.

Called the Icon and Icon Mini, these two smaller models are both dust-resistant and waterproof, and are light enough to float in water.

The standard Icon features a 12-hour battery and will cost $50, while the Icon Mini offers eight hours' battery life and will cost $30.


In addition to the Rave series of speakers, this spring Anker is also launching the $100 Soundcore Wakey, an alarm clock that doubles as a wireless charger.

Really like all of the power/soundcore products from Anker, looks more promising than the Superstar Blaster from Monster I bought for $300, the charging cable is broken and Monster aren’t interested in selling me a replacement cable over in Europe.

Sounds like you learned a lesson! Something similar happened to me so, I'll never get another Monster product again.

Yay, more blue LEDs!!! Why does every damn product these days come with eye-searing lights all over the place? I'd rather own a speaker that doesn't look like a cheap nightclub, thanks.
