As we focus on the packaging, we see an organized layout with the Arctic logo on the top left side of the box. Just below the logo lists the Bluetooth 4.0 connection types with the model number. The top right states their official website. Taking approximately two-thirds of the front is a 3d view of the product. It specifically highlights the features location such as the volume and pairing controls between both speakers. It also shows the 3.5 mm audio input jack, Micro USB charging port and on/off switch is visible on the right side.
The top of the box has a blue background illustrating the NFC function, stating a standby time of 700 hours (approximately 29 days) for its long lasting rechargeable battery. It also includes a picture of its included accessories. Just to the right of the images we find a smaller picture of the speaker showing specific feature locations.
Note: Due to time restraints, we were unable to test the claimed 700 hour standby time.
The left side of the back of the box gives the main features, the specifications of the product and the contents in the box. Just to the right is an enlarged picture of the device’s side and front panel. The right side shows the specific location of the audio jack on top, the Micro-USB charging port is center with the on/off switch just below the charging port. The enlarged front picture clearly shows the NFC connection plate is located on the topside of the speaker. The multifunction button that controls the pairing and call control is located in the center with the volume controls on each side. The LED indicator is located between the multifunction button and the Omni-directional microphone.
