Review: Lava Bright Sounds 2 Portable Speaker

We have just returned from a fantastic weekend at Ready Camp and took our Lava Bright Sounds 2 Portable USB/Bluetooth speaker to keep the kids entertained. This speaker is a great addition to our family camping set up. We love being outdoors and anything that makes things easy and doesn’t add to the stress is a winner in my book.

The speaker is fantastic for those weekends away where a power supply is not readily available too. The speaker has a fantastic battery life and lasts for hours (36 in total) and is so simple to use that my 2 year old has worked it out.

The carry handle on the top means she can toddle around listening to her favourite songs without any wires to worry about.

On the practical side its hard wearing but also splash proof which makes it ideal for camping in our wonderful British summers.

Review: Lava Bright Sounds 2 Portable Speaker

You can connect wirelessly via Bluetooth or directly via a standard 3.5 wire.

The speaker also can be used to charge your phone via a USB cable which is also included. It has a bright light in the body of the speaker that’s perfect for reading in a dark tent or giving a bit of light.  We used it so my eldest could listen to his audio books before he goes to sleep with some comfort.

This is a well priced travel speaker ideal for camping but also great for the family BBQ in the garden or when doing building work at the front of the house were power supplies are limited. Definitely a must purchase for this years trips away come rain or shine.

If you’d like to buy one I have a discount code set up for you to get £5 off your own BrightSounds 2. The code is MINI5 and you can buy one here!
