    First off if this is in the wrong area please let me know so I can move it. Thank you. Anyway! Does anyone know of a portable speaker that is pretty loud? Looking for something that can be heard by myself in like a factory setting. Not giant machines probably the loudest thing is air hoses spraying out parts. Suggestions? Don't want to buy something I won't be able to hear. Thanks all!

    It might be better to just get a pair of these: http://www.earplugstore.com/am-fm-radio-ear-muffs.html

    Anyway most of the bigger portable speakers can play quite loud, however, the battery drain is high. If there is a way of feeding it with power from the grid your best option will be to buy a normal stereo in a size that fits your needs.

    Is there an outlet to plug into or does it have to run on batteries?

    I have a pair of BoomBotix that I use at work. They are goofy looking, but with one bluetooth and the other hardwired and water/drop resistant they work rather well while getting the crap beat out of them. The set is loud enough to hear over quite a bit.

    Need them to be battery operated. Rechargable that is.

    If you have a usb battery bank (like the one below), you could pick a usb powered speaker. That's what I use when I go camping or to the beach.

    Or why not use a ghetto-blaster/boombox with rechargeable batteries?

    I have that HDX jam bluetooth speakers and they are really loud at least when I worked in retail. I work in a factory too (I'm an engineer tho) and I have yet to take it to work. Next week the plant is shut down and I'll get to try it out on the floor. Also these speakers are $40
