How to Make a Portable Bluetooth Speaker #MusicMonday

Great (and affordable) instructable! From bartroosen:

Bluetooth Speaker

Make your own powerfull Bluetooth Speaker with some extra features, easy explained, cheap and handy to use for less then 15$.

Maybe you have some components which you don’t need to buy like 5W speakers and some lithium batteries to make it less expensive like I did.

In the following steps I will try to explain on the easiest way how to assemble this bluetooth speaker, people who don’t know a lot of electronics will understand I hope 🙂

This speaker has a very long battery life when you use good 18650 lithium batteries.

I found 4x 18650 lithium batteries which I used in parallel and has a total of 6000mah, the speaker plays over 24 hours on the highest volume which is very loud.

You can charge the speaker with a micro USB, which is very handy!

I also added a voltmeter display wich I bought on ebay so I will know when the batteries are almost empty.

The last new thing I added to the speaker is the 5V usb out so you can charge your smartphone or other stuff.
