Braven bluetooth speakers double as battery charger
Utah based Braven have announced today their Six Series speakers that will not only pump up the jam on your iOS devices, but also charge them as if it were an external battery pack. The dual functioning speakers “have two custom extended-range drivers and 3 watt speaker output providing high-fidelity stereo audio with left- and right-channel passive sub woofers”, meaning they’ll sound worlds better the tiny speakers found on your iPhone or iPad.

The 625S ($179) has a rugged, shock-absorbing exterior, comes with a waterproof carrying bag and USB LED flashlight and is good for 16 hours of 16 hours of playback. Finally, the Braven 650 ($189) is equipped with aptX and AAC audio encoding for a “near lossless listening experience” and will provide up to 20 hours of continuous play.
The Braven Six Series is now available for pre-order online and will begin shipping by the end of June. Intro video and full press release after the break.
