Pro Great sound quality at lower volumes
The Soundlink Mini uses software to make sure there is no distortion on the device meaning that when you go louder the software will quit the music some, which makes for a more even sound, though means that you can not go as loud as some other devices.
Pro Durable construction
An aluminum body with large speakers that gives a sense of an old style radio, the construction of the device feels solid with a weight of 1.5 pounds and a casing that feels as though it will hold up for years no matter how much abuse it takes.
Pro Easy connectivity
The device remembers up to six of the last connected devices which makes bluetooth connection pretty easy after the first time.
Pro 7-hour battery life
Rechargeable lithium ion battery that is reported to last up to 7 hours, which is about the middle ground of higher end bluetooth speakers.
Con Heavy for its size
The device weights 1.5 pounds, which feels solid but may be a bit much if you plan on carrying it around to a lot of places.
Con Not produced anymore
This device as of June 2015 is not in production anymore as it has been replaced with a successor model the Soundlink Mini II.
Con Proprietary charging port
The charging port is proprietary, which means you need to carry around the charger in order to charge it (instead of using a standard mico usb which is often used in electronics now). This also means if the cord is lost another will have to be purchased, which will be hard to find and costly.
