ECOXGEAR’s new rugged Bluetooth speakers and power banks are waterproof and solar powered

ECOXGEAR, purveyors of rugged outdoor audio gear and power supplies, has announced three new additions to its line of accessories. These products “are made to take a beating” with pressure release valves for high altitudes, shock absorbing designs, and built-in floatation IPX7 waterproof certification.

Today’s announcement brings a new speaker, power bank and lipstick style battery pack that are both solar powered and “ultra rugged”. Head below for full details on these new products. 

First up is the EcoPebble power bank with a built-in 10,000mAh battery. In addition to providing a power source for your iPhone, tablets and other gear, it has a built-in 2-inch speaker driver. When fully charged, it is capable of pumping out “50 hours of playtime”. It has a built-in flashlight for dark adventures and is IPX67 rated plus “fully shock resistant”. The EcoPebble will go on sale come September for $100.

Although there aren’t many details at this time, the most intriguing addition to the ECOXGEAR lineup is the SOL JAM Bluetooth speaker. It is the “industry’s first” IPX67 waterproof portable Bluetooth speaker that is powered by integrated HD solar panels. If you’re an avid beachgoer or boater, this is a very interesting option that’s worth keeping an eye on later this fall when it launches for $150.

ECOXGEAR also announced the EcoCarbon combination Bluetooth speaker and power bank. This new option floats face-up in the water to keep the music playing in all types of situations, whether at the pool or in the lake. It is capable of powering your devices via its built-in battery while also playing music for up to twelve hours at a time. ECOXGEAR also has an LED battery meter and flashlight integrated into the design. The EcoCarbon will be available in September with a $130 price tag.

A small power bank also is making an appearance today: the Pebble Powerbank comes with 2,600mAh of power and a waterproof rugged design. At $20, it’s a potential option for those that beat up on their power banks.


ECOXGEAR Launches 100% Waterproof Rugged Power and Solar Solutions

San Diego, Calif. – (August 3, 2015) – ECOXGEAR’s commitment to delivering dependable audio solutions for the outdoor world expands as the company introduces its EcoPebble Powerbank, EcoCarbon, and Sol Jam. The new additions to the ECOXGEAR family means that now outdoor adventurers can count on a resourceful tool for keeping powered up while ‘soundtracking’ their excursions.

The ECOXGEAR SOL JAM (not pictured above; displayed exclusively at Outdoor Retailer Booth: BR517) is the industry’s first 100% waterproof (IPX67) portable Bluetooth speaker with integrated HD solar panels. Utilizing the power of the sun to charge the internal battery – never have to plug in to keep the party going!

The EcoPebble Powerbank features a single 2” speaker driver along with a 10,000 mAh battery charger for ultimate portability, while still packing a powerful punch of sound and efficient charging capabilities. The Powerbank is IPX 67 waterproof and fully shock resistant so it can be enjoyed while hiking, climbing, camping, surfing or SUPing. Users can play music while simultaneously charging up to two different devices at a time. Once the Pebble itself is fully

charged it also offers over 50 hours of playtime for long adventures. It’s equipped with a bright LED flashlight and phone control buttons for those utilizing it as an overnight companion.

For those who desire an ultra-compact power boost the 2,600 mAh EcoCharge is the perfect 100% waterproof and rugged power bank.

The EcoCarbon is the next key component of ECOXGEAR’s newest line-up, also playing music while charging devices. EcoCarbon comes equipped with multiple mounting accessories to affix to your tent, bike, or board. Like all popular ECOXGEAR speakers, EcoCarbon floats on top of water so tunes can be enjoyed in the lake, ocean or pool. It offers over 12 hours of playtime, a 4 step LED battery meter and an LED flashlight for navigating.

“For years we’ve been delivering 100% waterproof audio solutions for our customers who love the outdoors and music, giving them a means to enjoy both at the same time, but this year we are launching some of our best products yet” said CEO of ECOXGEAR, Greg Fadul. “The SOL JAM is not a “me too” solar powered wireless speaker. We’ve integrated SunCore’s cutting edge solar panel and harvesting system into the SOL JAM allowing consumers to charge their smart devices and the SOL JAM outdoors. Under many situations users will never have to plug their SOL JAM into a wall outlet ever again!

“The Pebble Powerbank and EcoCarbon are meant to give our users a way to feel totally prepared for their adventure of the day with what’s in their backpack,” Fadul adds. “Let’s face it, spending times outdoors is fun and technology is inevitably going to be a part of your day! We want to offer a more effective way to keep in touch, entertained, and powered up when you’re off the grid.”

The Pebble Powerbank, EcoCarbon and EcoCharge will be available in September 2015 retailing for $100, $130, and $20 respectively, with the SOL JAM launching in Q4 2015 for $150.
