Hands-on research

Product Research


Overview: The Bose SoundDock Portable / SoundLink car charger uses a 12V power outlet commonly found in many of today's vehicles. It lets you play music & charge your Bose SoundDock Portable digital music system or Bose SoundLink Wireless Mobile speaker (both sold separately). You can also charge an iPod or iPhone if it's docked in your SoundDock Portable system.

Note: Recharging the Bose SoundDock Portable or Bose SoundLink with this charger may take up to 10 hours.

Caution: Using the car charger for more than a few hours with the car engine turned off may result in a weak or dead car battery, depending on its ability to hold a charge. After 6 hours of charging or playing music while the car charger is connected to your car battery, Bose recommends running your car engine 10 minutes for every hour of additional anticipated playback.

Warning: Do not play your SoundDock Portable or SoundLink system while driving. The distraction may present a danger to you or others.
