Arctic supplies a carrying case that is custom made with just enough room to keep the speaker secure and safe. It is designed with a soft stylish exterior and a zipper that runs all the way down to the bottom of the bag. Inside the case, we also find that compartments on each side to hold cables and necessary devices like your AC to USB adapter.
The cables included are a 350mm audio cable for 3.5mm jacks. There was also an 860mm USB to Micro USB cable used for charging the internal battery pack.

The Arctic S113BT wireless speaker is lightweight and compact, but Arctic also knew what music lovers want. We want great audio quality in a hands free speaker that doesn’t have to be constantly charged. This affordable high performance speaker wasn’t only meant for music enthusiasts but business environments as well. Its incorporated omni-directional microphone makes it easy to hold conference calls without all that expensive equipment.
From a distance of 10 meters (33ft), the exceptional sound quality and hands free controls for both your music and your phone will surprise you with this device. Watch out BOSS, your competition has arrived! This speaker doesn’t need to be big in order to out-perform your typical mobile audio sound system. This compact dual 1.5 inch speaker was meant to be the center of attention.
It’s rechargeable 1,200 mAh battery lasts for 10 hours, which is astounding, but don’t be surprised when it finally dies with no warning since a battery indicator has not been included on this model. Still, considering the quality and durability this speaker has to offer, for only $79.99 USD this is a great buy. Don’t go cheap and settle for something less. It easily earns our PureOverclock Editor’s Choice award.
