The Nillkin PlayVox S1 boasts a rugged body made out of rubbery material. You’ll never mind if it fall accidentally as it is so sturdy. It even has IPX4 water resistant function makes it safe for outdoors.

The Nillkin PlayVox S1 is sleek in design!

We tried it in our car and placed it on top of our dashboard which surprises us as it didn’t slide at all. Also, with the rubbery feel of the speaker you will not worry it might slip out of your hand.

Using this speaker is not just for enjoying the music or the sound while watching your favorite series or movies, it can actually be handy in answering incoming calls from your mobile phone or laptop.

Have tried this during our conference call with our Australian client and we can hear them loud and clear. You’ll never think that you’re actually talking to people down under.

It is also very compact in size.

Battery Life

Watching KDrama is not as good if you are listening to it (even if you literally don’t understand). With the 5 hour capacity, you can even finish more than 5 episodes with no interruption.

Charging is not a problem, you can wait for 2 hours to have it full charged.  But wait, you can actually use the speaker while charging.
