portable speaker that streams wirelessly via Bluetooth is a dime a dozen these days but all of them does one or two things in common, like the obvious playing of music via Bluetooth streaming from your iDevices or any other Bluetooth-enabled media player. similarly, these speakers also allow you to use them as speakerphone. however, the SPAR Zephyr featured here does more than that: it also doubles as a battery extender for your mobile gadgets. in short, it also charges your handset via USB when your handset needs a boost of juice. though, SPAR did not detail how long would its Zephyr’s juice last if your handset hitch a ride on it. three models are currently up for pre-order with a price tag starting from $99.99 and runs up to $159.99 each.
