The Good The G-Project G-Go is portable wireless Bluetooth speaker that's water-resistant and has a unique design that's highlighted by an integrated carrying handle. The unit can be powered by four AA batteries for up to around 8 hours. There's also a built-in USB port for charging other portable devices such as a smartphone.

The Bad There isn't a rechargeable battery, and sound is only OK.

The Bottom Line Its sound may not be impressive, but the G-Go's unique design, affordable price, and splash resistance make it appealing for casual listening.

A few of us here in the office have been looking for a portable Bluetooth speaker that will work in the shower. Alas, G-Project's $69 G-Go (G-100) speaker, which is available in Target stores, is splash-resistant but not waterproof, so it might not quite fit the bill. But it's close.

The speaker comes in blue, black, or white, and has an integrated handle for carrying it around, which makes it look a little like one of those industrial flashlights. There's no built-in rechargeable battery like some portable Bluetooth speakers have, but you can get up to 8 hours of on-the-go use with four AA batteries.

You can stream music to the G-Go from any Bluetooth-enabled device, which includes virtually all smartphones and many tablets, including the iPad and higher-end Android tablets (the Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet do not offer Bluetooth).
