Performance
Kinivo ZX100 works with any devices with a 3.5mm audio port. Just plug it in and you will have the audio routed via this mini speaker. Sound quality is better than what you would have experienced on the phone / tablet, and it gets even better in resonator mode.

It takes about 2 hours to fully charge, you can use the speaker while charging. Once fully charge you can expect about 5 to 6 hours of usage.

Verdict
Today, everyone is using a mobile phone and they have their favorite music files on it. The mini speaker comes really handy in certain situations like parties, small gathering – in absence of a music system, you can easily transform your phone into a party player, with much louder and better sound quality.

Kinivo ZX100 is priced at Rs. 999.
