Bluetooth speakers com in all shapes and sizes and sometimes, like the Boompods Downdraft Bluetooth Portable Speaker are very small indeed.

Power comes from the built-in rechargeable lithium battery. Its unique pod form gives immense sound with a 3W speaker and up to 6 hours playback. the device is lightweight and small enough to fit in a backpack, briefcase or handbag.

The main problem could be its small size. The sound quality was rather weak and it seemed to emit a hissing noise at most volumes.

The device can be picked up from most retailers for around £26.
