Have not fully tested yet, but it came charged up. Took golfing and the charge lasted for hours and is stills not drained.
Sound is what you would expect with such small speakers, but it did not sound tinny to me. Not bad for the size.
This is an update ********
The speakers fell apart in that the black plastic accordian protection sleeve came loose from the blue plastic in less than a month's use. NOT very durable. After some usuage the speakers seemed to lose some acoustics. I do not know if this is a result of the black accordian sleeve coming loose.
I bought them almost $30.00 less than the current listed price of $60.00 Anyway would not buy at any price now.
