iMainGo X – Portable Sound plus giveaway

Sometimes when I check into a hotel room on a girlfriend getaway or family vacation, I like to listen the personal road trip soundtrack I’ve put together on my portable music device. Hotels are not all created equal with only some of them providing iPod docking stations or mp3 player connections as an in-room amenity. I do have an inexpensive portable speaker case to play music when the family is at the park or I’m sitting down near the pond for some afternoon fishing, however, the gadget is a few years old and it finally gave out.
iMainGo X portable speaker system for
I recently tested out the iMainGo X Portable Speaker system and also handed it over to each of the kids to also check out and provide their opinions. My daughter was the first to check it out, claiming that it was now her gadget so that she could listen to the Glee soundtrack and make up a dance routine. We had to wrestle the iMainGo X from her so that my teen son could check it out. He has an iPhone 4 and proceeded to put his phone in the protective case of the iMainGo X and then tortured us on the way to a family dinner with his collection of those annoying commercials about Real American Heroes – you know, the ones that begin “Here’s to you, Mr. Nosebleed Section Ticket Holder”. Annoying. Fortunately, as the mom, I was able to declare his review time as expired and that it was time to hand the iMainGo X back to me.

The iMainGoX isn’t just portable speakers, but it’s also a protective case for various products, such as the Apple iPhone, Microsoft Zune, or your preferred MP3 player. It does NOT protect the iPod Shuffle, but will work with other electronics such as a laptop, portable gaming systems, Kindle, and even the iPad and other devices with a 35mm connection. I will admit that what makes this portable speaker system with case better than my older system is the ability to control my device without having to open the case. The clear protective covering allows me to use the touchscreen without going through too much trouble.

This device is powered by a rechargeable lithium ion battery which lasts for up to 12 hours. The exterior is made of Neoprene waterproof material (great for the beach or poolside), but as with any electronic device, try to keep it from getting wet. This item comes in black and also in a recently released pink. MSRP is around $75 but can be found online at various retailers for a few dollars less.
