Confirmed purchaser interior designer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
power- re-chargeable batteries or mains, the design of the removable portable speaker is very handy. well thought out design, very easy to use and compact.
Bad points:
while the removable front piece looks modern the back part could be a bit more attractive. when played with i-phone if not in flight mode sound tends to crackle, which happens with any device like this.

tjr, Classical music lover

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
Very cheap dock
Bad points:
Battery exploded after the warranty expired. Gear4's support was absolutely unhelpful. They would only give me 40% off on a new Gear4 purchase while all I wanted was a working speaker dock. On top of that they told me I should've replaced the battery pack myself because, according to them, it's very usual batteries exploded (or stop working) after 3 years of operation. So if you own this dock, please remove the battery pack before it damages your dock or worse...
