So if you don’t know by now, I am a complete tech lover and I have a house full of gadgets to prove it! I personally own a couple dozen bluetooth speakers but when Outdoor Tech said they had something new to check out I jumped at the chance! Today we are going to be taking a look at one of their newest gadgets, the Outdoor Tech Buckshot Pro.
The Buckshot Pro comes with a lot! You get the actual Buckshot Pro, which is the Bluetooth Speaker and powerbank, a USB flashlight accessory, the rubber handlebar bike mount, a micro USB cable, two awesome Outdoor Tech logo stickers (I love stickers) and a manual (who ever reads a manual these days). So let’s take a deeper dive into the components and see what all they bring to the table!
The Buckshot Pro itself is a 2600 mAh battery pack and bluetooth speaker. The speaker measures just under an 1 1/2″, so you can’t expect it to give a powerful sound like The Big Turtle Shell would put out. That being said, I was pleasantly surprised at the volume and good quality that it produced! On top of the fact that the speaker had a nice quality to it, you get a rated play time of 10 hours! Nice! Additionally, one thing that a lot of bluetooth speakers don’t have these days is a speakerphone component. The Buckshot Pro has this one handled however, as it has an incorporates speakerphone for all those conference calls you are just dying to take! ;-) Another great feature of the Buckshot Pro unit is that it also comes with a 2600 mAh battery pack. Depending on what type of phone you have it will charge the average phone to full charge. (Who doesn’t need an extra charge available these days!)
Now let’s take a look at the other fun stuff it come with! First up is a USB flashlight accessory! The best part about the flashlight is that it’s super simple! Just plug in the USB flashlight right into the USB port on the Buckshot Pro then rotate the lock ring so it ends up flush with the flashlight. That’s it! The flashlight accessory has several different settings you can use. If you hold down the power button on the flashlight accessory for three seconds and it will start off in a torch mode. If you push the button again it dims down the torch mode. Lastly if you push the button again and it goes into a lamp mode which is great for ambient lighting.
Lastly it comes with a handlebar mount which you are able to attach in a number of different ways to a bike or anything else you can imagine!
Final thoughts about the Buckshot Pro…
So is it worth your hard earned cash to get a Buckshot Pro? In my opinion, yes. If you are looking for a mid range bluetooth speaker or a battery pack, this is the way to go. You get the best of both worlds, PLUS you get a flashlight! If you were to have to buy all three separate you would easily be over a hundred dollars but you can get the Buckshot Pro for only $79.95!
