Anker Soundcore A3102 Partial Teardown
Background and Identification
The Anker Soundcore A3102011 portable Bluetooth speaker aims to offer everything a customer could want in a speaker: quality sound, a long-lasting battery, easy connectivity, and, of course, portability. The Anker Soundcore A3102011’s battery life really is impressive for a portable speaker—it can keep churning out tunes for up to 24 hours after just one charge. Additionally, the Anker Soundcore A3102011 comes with an 18-month warranty from Anker. The speaker’s cost is just $42.99, which is less expensive than many portable speaker variants on the market.
The Anker Soundcore A3102011 was reviewed positively overall. For instance, SoundGuys reported that it would be difficult to find a better speaker for under $50. SoundGuys also claimed that even though this speaker isn’t expensive, it is “worth every penny.” These positive reviews are because of the Anker Soundcore A3102011’s overall sound quality, battery life, and low cost. However, as with everything, the speaker isn’t perfect. Some drawbacks include high notes that seem a bit harsh and that the plastic encasing is a magnet for fingerprints and difficult to keep clean.
The Anker Soundcore A3102011 portable speaker is rectangular and brick-like in shape. It has basic controls on the top of its encasing (power, volume, play, and Bluetooth), and the Anker logo printed on the side. The speaker comes in different colors, including both black and red.
