In a moment when we are spending more time at home working and doing DIY projects around the house, why not spruce up your shower with new speaker technology. Announced today, Ampere launched Shower Power, the hydropower shower speaker that delivers 360° immersive sound, on Kickstarter.
The Shower Power is made to fit with any showerhead with it’s patent-pending design that uses the water flow from your shower to power it up. The Shower Power syncs with any Bluetooth-enabled device so you’ll be able to listen to your favorite music, podcasts or audiobooks in the shower.
When the Shower Power is installed with your showerhead, the flow of water spins an internal impeller inside Shower Power, which is connected to a mini generator that charges up the battery inside. The speaker automatically turns on when the water is turned on and stores enough power to keep playing after your shower is over too.
With the water running, Shower Power always generates enough power to play and charge the battery at the same time. With a fully charged battery, Shower Power boasts over 16 hours of listening time with the shower off.
As well as using renewable energy, Shower Power is also made from 100% recycled ocean plastic. The use of recycled materials in its construction greatly reduces its environmental footprint and clears out some of that pesky plastic from our oceans.
Shower Power’s cylindrical design includes a proprietary Sound Wave amplifier that radiates evenly in all directions and delivers immersive, stereophonic audio. You can also play, pause and skip tracks directly on the speaker with the push of button. But if your showerhead is just a little out of reach, Shower Power also comes with a waterproof remote control, so you can take charge of your speaker mid-shampoo rinse.
Shower Power measures just three inches by two inches and weighs around one pound. It’s available with a range of accessories, including a mini waterproof speaker that pairs directly with Shower Power so you can build better sound throughout your bathroom. It also comes in three colorways — crisp white, matte black and chrome — to match any bathroom style and installs in less than one minute with any showerhead.
With today’s Kickstarter launch, the Shower Power will become available for pre-order on the Ampere website in December and will begin shipping in January. Shower Power starts from $59 on Kickstarter and starts shipping in January 2020. The MSRP for Shower Power will be $99.95.
