Hi there, Captain OT here to announce the launch of the Big Turtle Shell Ultra by Outdoor Tech. I’m ready to brighten up your day by letting you see more of myself. Yes, I know it’s extremely generous of me, but since I am so awesome, I have decided to share my awesomeness with you.  

At long last, the greatest superhero ever has a film to show off his greatestness and the greatness of the new Big Turtle Shell Ultra. Feast your eyes upon the strong, handsome, intelligent, and strong (did I say strong again)… Captain OT. Not since the dawn of civilization has the world seen such a wonderful being . . .  ughh I mean speaker.

I’ll let the gang from Outdoor Tech take it from here. - Captain OT

Our Story   

Thanks Captain OT, you are quite the wordsmith. Greatestness?

We are Outdoor Tech and we love making Stuff You Probably Want. Since 2009, Outdoor Tech has been shaped by this constant push and pull, to stay connected but not tethered. Our blood boils with design, style, and creation. From our magical home in Southern California we aim to create products that serve real needs, for real people that do real things.

Our mission is to bridge the gap between brilliant design and rugged accessories that stand up to an active lifestyle.

Bluetooth 4.2 

The Big Turtle Shell Ultra provides a full wireless audio experience. Using Bluetooth 4.2 True Wireless technology (pair two together), the Big Turtle Shell Ultra wirelessly connects with your phone, tablet, laptop, or any other Bluetooth-enabled device to bring you loud, quality, wireless auditory bliss. Streaming crystal-clear audio from a range of over 30 feet and a play time of 8 hours on a single battery charge.

Rugged, Waterproof and Tough Design

Your Big Turtle Shell Ultra is built with a rugged, waterproof housing so you no longer have to be afraid of taking your speaker off of your coffee table and into the wild. The Big Turtle Shell Ultra was built for adventure, it's begging you to take it to the extreme corners of the world, but it will settle for your summer pool party if that's the best you can throw at it. That is right, drop it in the pool and listen away.

 Amazing Sound 

The Big Turtle Shell Ultra is capable of 360° omnidirectional stereo sound. Unlike a traditional “brick” speaker that just points sound at you, the Big Turtle Shell Ultra fills the area with perfect, loud, wireless auditory bliss. The upgraded Neodymium magnetic drivers conduct sound like no other.

Here are some of the stats on the speaker:
Speaker Size: 2 70mm drivers
Speaker Sensitivity: 78±3dB
Speaker Impedance: 6 Ohm
Speaker Max Input Power: 2*10W
Speaker Frequency Range: 100HZ~20KHz
Speaker Passive Bass Radiator: 75db 164*80mm

It's important to note that having a loud speaker is rad but when the Big Turtle Shell Ultra is at maximum volume it sounds amazing. We balanced out the audio and are very pleased with the results. You will be too.

Connect Multiple Speakers Wirelessly 

Wirelessly connect 2 Big Turtle Shell Ultras together via True Wireless technology. It's easy too, we added a True Wireless button on the Big Turtle Shell Ultra so syncing up 2 speakers is as simple as pressing a button. First you pair one speaker with your device (phone, tablet, computer, etc.) then you pair that speaker with another Big Turtle Shell Ultra. You can have the first speaker up to 30 feet from your device and the second speaker up to 30 feet from the first speaker!

IPX7 Waterproof Rating 

Our product engineers have worked hard to make the Big Turtle Shell Ultra have a waterproof rating of at least IPX7, yep completely waterproof. Which means that you can take the Big Turtle Shell Ultra almost anywhere without having to worry about it getting ruined by the elements. Made for a life on the go the Big Turtle Shell Ultra is easy to handle, mount, pack, and take with you.

 8800mAh Rechargeable Battery 

The huge 8,800 mAh internal battery will keep the music blasting for over 12 hours! You can even use that power to charge external devices like your phone, GoPro, or other small electronics via the Big Turtle Shell Ultra’s USB (standard A) port.

Say goodbye to that clunky AC Adapter. The Big Turtle Shell Ultra has a micro USB (type B) in port for charging. So, charging up in any country is as easy as finding a USB port with power.

LED Lantern Lighting 

Set the mood with the cool white LED lighting array in the Big Turtle Shell Ultra. Three lighting modes let you choose how much glow you want. A high setting of 150 lumens, middle of 100 lumens, and low of 50 lumens. So now you can pretend your Big Turtle Shell Ultra is a flying saucer that plays heavy metal or mellow jazz, that’s up to you.

Built in Microphone 

Of course the Big Turtle Shell Ultra has a built-in microphone too. This means you can use it as a speakerphone for calls or other voice functions on your phone, tablet, or computer.

Simple Controls 

With just a few buttons on the Big Turtle Shell Ultra, you can do the following: power on/off, pair with device, pair with another speaker, play/pause music, skip forward/back, volume up/down, answer/end call, activate Siri/Google Assistant, and turn on/off lights. Yeah, that’s a lot of stuff!

Why We Need Kickstarter's Help

Designing and developing the Big Turtle Shell Ultra has been both fun and challenging and now we are at the most difficult part of the entire project. This is the part where we need to actually start production, but we don't have the funds to do that. We need the help from the Kickstarter community to finish the product and bring it to market.

Once in a Lifetime Opportunity 

We can tell you that getting this on Kickstarter is a crazy deal. You won't be able to grab one (or four) at this price anywhere once it's available.

 Ships Anywhere in the World 

That's right, we will ship your backer rewards anywhere! If you are outside the United States and Canada, this is your chance to get the Big Turtle Shell Ultra.

Risks and challenges

Outdoor Tech isn't new to the Kickstarter community, we learned a great deal from the support and feedback from our 5 previous successful Kickstarter campaigns.

We have trial production samples that are flowing out now and can proudly state that the Big Turtle Shell Ultra is working perfectly. We went through an 18+ month development process and are happy to have arrived at this point in the lifecycle of the product.

Having worked with our manufacturer for many years we can vouch for their quality and reliability. We've got a firm production schedule and are confident in our suppliers and vendors for both the inputs and manufacturing.

That said, there are inherent risks of delay in the process. We will communicate with both our backers and our manufacturer throughout the campaign to ensure the fulfillment timeline stays true.
