So I am looking to you guys for help choosing a bluetooth speaker. I don't want something too big for portability and I don't really want to spend >$100.

It will be used for streaming from phones/pads. Near water, so resistant would be nice but not imperative as the phone/pad isn't resistant.

I am leaning to this JBL as it gets great reviews.

Your input please...

Well, I went with the JBL Charge 2. IT's great, I got it for $99!

Very handy to be able to charge your phone from the speaker when the phone is dying.

I have an Cambridge Sounds Oontz . Its a bit large but has a very long battery life. The battery

life was my main reason for getting it for me. I will say i would by it again. It gets plenty loud.

But it may be a bit to large for you. I have one of the older ones. Flat face and round back.

worth checking out. Cambridge Sounds makes good stuff.

Stay away from the Jawbone jambox. I got one of those first and sent it back.

For as big as it was it was very weak.
