Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dinamite music They say dinamite comes in small packaging. This is true with the essential charge. Powerful sound and the upside, battery lasts a really long time and can charge your phone. Battery lasted 5 days on a camp playing lots of music at fairly high volume.

The Specifications for the Charge Essential list 2.4G and 5G Wi-fi frequencies and network compatibility. Does that mean you can connect to this device via wi-fi? The manual makes no mention of this.

Asked by: Dannny
For our Charge Essential, this is only for the Bluetooth Connection and not for WiFi. What is mentioned is for the frequency its signal can match but not connect.
