The manual provides information on pairing and controls which are fairly self explanatory. When you turn it on, it’s in paring mode. Your phone will list a device called “IC-BTS03” just select it and you’re done.

Each time the speaker is used, it will remember and reconnect to the last paired device automatically.

The iClever IC-BTS03 bluetooth speaker and accessories

The iClever outdoor speaker's rugid build qualityThe bluetooth speaker has a cubic design with chamfered corners. There’s a tough protective mesh grill on both sides, but the sound does only come from the front. The rubberised edges are easy to hold and provide good amount of protection. The controls are all inset on the top surface of the bluetooth speaker.

There’s a power button, volume and track selection and a multi-functional button. This allows you to play / pause tracks or answer and end hands free phone calls.

By holding the ‘+’ and ‘-‘ together, the iClever will disconnect from the current device and seek a new connection.

The protected port covers on the iClever outdoor bluetooth speakerThe AUX and Micro USB charging port is hidden under a thick rubber dust and water resistant cover. It’s a little fiddly to refit, but worth it to ensure a good protection from the elements.
