ION Audio Road Warrior Review

One of the speakers that left a great impression on us is the ION Audio Road Warrior. Whether you are into listening to radio programs, streaming music, singing karaoke, or just throwing a great outdoor party this portable speaker will make you more than satisfied. As an additional bonus, it is very portable and you can easily charge your devices on it. It’s simply an all in one solution.

About the ION company

This company has been on the market for about 18 years now and it has always been able to come up with something innovative and fun. This is exactly what made them last for so long.

One of their most popular products was the USB conversion turntable which allowed the user to easily convert any vintage vinyl into digital audio files. Since that time, they continued to deliver great high-quality products. 

They definitely did a great job in the portable speaker’s industry. The ION Audio Road Warrior is one of the speakers you would definitely like to have, so let’s take a closer look at it.

Portability and Connectivity

The ION Audio Road Warrior can be used everywhere you want. It is a portable speaker, but if it’s too bulky and heavy for you there are recessed handles built-in so you can cart it easily. Additionally, it can work in wired and wireless mode it all depends on the situation but you won’t notice any difference. Just like many people do, you can put it in your car trunk and pull it out when needed. Having such a speaker ready, when no one is expecting it, is amazing.

It’s Loud and Powerful

One of the characteristics of the ION Audio Road Warrior is the amazing bass. Whenever you play music using it, everyone will be able to notice the loud and clear sound.

The ION Audio Road Warrior is pretty powerful and this is one of the reasons why AudioReputation has selected it as one of the loudest Bluetooth speakers on the market. The 500 watts of pure power guarantee you can hear it in a 100 feet radius. The specific design of the speaker promises more power and projection as well.

You can choose whether you want to power up the ION using a 12-volt jack in your car or using a battery. Whichever option you choose, it will work like a charm.

Additional features

The speaker comes with a built-in FM radio which is excellent if you don’t want to miss your favorite radio show. You can also use it to stream music from your device no matter whether it is a PC, tablet or smartphone and this makes it an excellent speaker for outdoor parties.

Also, in case you want to sing karaoke or perform in public, this speaker will do the job perfectly. All you need in this case is a microphone with an adequate jack. Just plug it into the speaker and enjoy. 

A word about the battery

Whenever you plan a party it is important to take care your speaker is completely charged. This will guarantee hours of fun. According to the manufacturer you can expect it to last up to 12 hours when completely charged. However, verified buyers have reported that it lasts around 5-6 hours. Maybe it’s because the battery in portable speakers can last half the time if you listen to music at high volumes. On the bright side, in case you notice the battery won’t last any longer you can charge it and use it at the same time. There is no reason to end the party because of an empty battery.

Is it waterproof?

Unfortunately, the ION Audio Road Warrior isn’t waterproof. We couldn’t find IPX rating so if you plan to use it at the beach or at the pool, you need to think in advance about the best place to put it to work.


If you need a good-quality all-in-one portable speaker the ION Audio Road Warrior Speaker is a great choice. It doesn’t matter whether you are at the beach or by the pool, or in a conference room – the ION Audio Road Warrior will definitely deliver hours of fun.
