UpSurge Mini Speaker Review

My husband and I love to watch movies together and the kids are always taking up the television so we end up watching movies on our laptop most of the time. And the number one problem we have 80% of the time is that we can’t here our movie, either because the kids are too loud or the movie will only turn up but so loud. So I was thrilled to find out I would be reviewing the Marware UpSurge Mini Speaker. I have heard about many different mini speakers but have never tried one. They all claim to pump out amazing sound and base. So we tried this out the night we got it and watched a movie on the laptop as usual. We plugged it in and turned the laptop up all the way because we didn’t think it was gonna be very loud. Well let me tell you, we about jumped out of our chairs when the sound started. I could not believe what I was seeing and hearing. This little mini speaker that fits in the palm of your hand was so loud the kids asked us to turn it down and they were in the other room! It was vibrating the whole table and the sound was amazing! Very crisp, no distortion sounds, and the base was just awesome. You can carry this little speaker anywhere you go. What’s great is that it  is rechargeable and long-lasting. The UpSurge Mini Speaker really is the perfect solution for your portable audio needs, whether you’re watching a movie, listening to music or playing a video game.

This speaker works with almost any media player device with a 3.5mm headphone jack. Such as mobile phones, laptops, tablets, portable gaming devices, MP3 players and more! Includes: speaker, USB charging cable, detachable 3.5mm audio cable and manual. And super easy to use, just plug the USB cord in the mini speaker and plug the other end into your laptop to charge it. Then once it’s charged use the other cord for the sound. It has an on/off switch and with a tiny twist it expands to give you even more sound and base! This would make for a truly awesome stocking stuffer this Holiday Season! See update below.


  • Vacuum bass expansion system and digital amplifier enhance sound quality
  • Weighs 5.1 oz/DC-5V charge/Built-in Lithium-ion rechargeable battery
  • Runtime is about 5 hours

UPDATE: 2/28/2013

This is the second UpSurge Mini Speaker I have received because the first one blow after a few times of using. Now the second one has done the same thing. So with that being said unfortunately I no longer highly recommend this product unless they can find out what’s causing the UpSurge Mini Speaker to blow.

    Ipod 🙂

  5. I would use this with my phone to listen to music or on my netbook (sound is very limited on it). Hubby has no hearing in one ear due to his service in Viet Nam so hopefully this would help him enjoy the music with me. Truth of the matter is though, my grandkids will probably convince Papa that they need it for their iPod, LOL

    Thank you so much for this opportunity.
