    Odd they would give it a battery that only last 2.5 hours, and if that's the claim it probably is less.

    Battery duration can be an arbitrary rating because it'll drain faster the louder the volume is set.

    ^ You can bet that the 2.5 hour rating isn't for full volume. Have you ever seen a speaker rated for shorter battery life?

    ^ Agreed, but if they don't specify the output wattage for that period or battery mAH capacity then it's hard to make heads or tails of their specification. I don't think there's any kind of industry trend or standard toward specifying 1W output or anything like that.

    I checked their 'site and the Owner's Manual and neither give any more information, not even the charging time for a hint at battery capacity. If I had to make a wild guess then I'd guess the capacity is around 800mAH, about that of a 14450 cylindrical or small cell phone flat pack battery but if it's a flat pack it could easily be lower.
