IKEA Launches Vappeby Portable Bluetooth Speaker – A Versatile and Affordable Gadget

IKEA has launched a new Portable Bluetooth Speaker in their Vappeby lineup, and it is sure to make waves.[0] This tiny, silicone-coated, IP67-rated speaker is only three inches square and two inches deep, and comes in black, red, or yellow.[1] It is waterproof and can be submerged in water up to one meter deep for 30 minutes.[2] With a lanyard included, it can even be hung up in the shower.[3] Best of all, it retails for only $15, making it one of the most affordable portable speakers on the market.[2]

Stjepan Begic, Product Design Developer at Ikea of Sweden, described the Vappeby speaker as “a very user-friendly solution.”[4] He added, “We hope customers will embrace the speaker, and we hope it adds value to their lives by enabling them to enjoy sound experiences from anywhere.”[4]

The speaker also has a long battery life, lasting up to 80 hours on a single charge at 50% volume.[5] This is much longer than its closest competitor, the Tribit Stormbox Micro 2, which only offers 12 hours of battery life. Unfortunately, the speaker does not come with a USB-C charger, so you will need to provide your own.

This speaker may not have audiophile-level sound quality due to its small size, but its versatility and affordability at only $15 make it an irresistible purchase. It can be used in almost any location, making it a great value.[6] The Vappeby Portable Bluetooth speaker will be available globally in April 2021, so be sure to check with your local market for product availability.[2]
