There are a lot of Bluetooth speakers on the market to choose from. But you’ll have a hard time finding many that also work as lanterns, which is exactly what LG’s New XBOOM 360 speaker brings to the table.

LG XBOOM 360 Speaker and Lantern

The new speaker from LG comes packed with all sorts of audio features, but it also has a built-in light, so you can use it to light up a room with both happy toons and actual light.

As far as musical features go, this speaker comes with a 5.25-inch glass fiber woofer and 1.0-inch titanium horn tweeter. It features omnidirectional sound, so you’ll be able to hear the music all around the room. If you’re using this as a party speaker, the LG XBOOM 360 is perfect for that. In total, it features 120W RMS when connected to a power source, so it bumps.

Because it has a lantern on top, you also get some cool features such as mood lighting and DJ effects (such as scratching) through the app. You can also link two speakers together to create an even louder music experience.

LG describes the speaker’s party features by saying, “LG XBOOM 360 can create the right atmosphere for any occasion thanks to 360-degree mood lighting with three different presets — Ambient, Nature, and Party.”

As far as battery life, LG promises up to 10 hours of time, which is pretty solid for a small speaker with high volume output.

There’s a handle on the top of the speaker that’ll make carrying it around a painless process.
