The BIG Turtle Is Coming To “Rock” Your World
The Turtle is getting bigger and better. You may recall our review of the Outdoor Technology Turtle Bluetooth speaker. It is still hands down our favorite Bluetooth speaker on the market thanks to its combination of rugged durability, funky looks and great sound.
Now this slab of awesome is getting a jumbo-sized upgrade with the new BIG Turtle Shell. They upped the size of the speaker, added a bigger battery and gave us a few new cool features like the ability to charge devices with the inbuilt USB port. Things that didn’t change are the awesome design and nearly indestructible IPX6 rated housing.
The project is currently open on Kickstarter, but this isn’t our attempt to make you guys spend money; The BIG Turtle project was so popular that it was funded in less than 24 hours. Rather, we just wanted to let you guys know that the team at OT is rocking more great products, and if you want one for cheap, Kickstarter is the best place to grab one.
We will be having a full review of the BIG Turtle Shell in the coming weeks, but if you have anything you want to know about this new product, the Kickstarter page has all the details, and an awesome video to boot. Check it out.

I actually don’t know how I feel about this. I just bought the original Turtle Shell and I agree, it’s an awesome little speaker with a great bass range for the size of the actual device. I guess making it “bigger” would be the next thing but for me wireless Bluetooth speakers need to be portable, and with portable I don’t want to need a truck to haul them around. Yes, if you go bigger you’ll get better sound, but that’s hardly a feat. I don’t see myself buying into this one yet, but I’m open to be convinced once it actually hits the floor. i’m less concerned about the sound – I’m sure that will be fine – and more about the utility.
