The Amazon reviews about receiving DOA units have scared me off…
I received a DOA unit, but Woot gave me a prompt refund. I’m going to give this another try.
The sound quality is atrocious. Unless you care more about solar than sound quality, look elsewhere. A marsboy speaker that is 1/4 the size sounds better than this.
The sound quality should scare you away more than the DOA part. They are likely DOA because it seems to be a discontinued item and the batteries have been sitting in storage for so long.
