The Good The affordable Logitech Tablet Speaker clips on to any tablet, plugs into the device's headphone jack, and offers significantly better sound than your tablet's speakers. It also has a built-in rechargeable battery, includes a protective cover, and works with any device that has a 3.5mm headphone jack, including laptops.

The Bad The cord is a little short, and the battery is nonreplaceable. The clip isn't the most elegant or sturdy attachment, either.

The Bottom Line If you don't mind the clip-on design, the superaffordable Logitech Tablet Speaker actually sounds decent enough and offers compatibility with multiple devices thanks to its simple and flexible design.

Logitech's Tablet Speaker is one of those products that might not blow you away in any department, but its simple, versatile design and inexpensive price makes it an easy impulse buy, especially for those looking to augment the sound of their iPad for movie viewing.

The speaker--which is fairly lightweight at 6.5 ounces--is 8.5 inches long and clips onto the top of the iPad and larger Android tablets. You then plug the cord into the 3.5mm headphone jack on your device, hit the power button, and you're good to go.

It's worth noting that the clip opens pretty wide so there's some leeway in terms of what you can clip it onto. For example, I clipped it onto an iPad that had a case on without any problem.


The side-mounted speakers are very directional, and the cord is only 13 inches long.

However, the one limiting factor to what you clip onto is the length of the cord--it's 13 inches long (it does fold into the speaker and hide away for transport, which is nice). That means you can only clip the speaker onto the top of a small laptop like the 11-inch MacBook Air in order to have the cord reach the headphone jack.
