The Polk Boom Swimmer is one of the most versatile speakers on the market.
It is dirt, sand, shock and waterproof, and it is REALLY LOUD with some serious BASS.

It comes with a detachable tail and a suction cup. It attaches to almost everything; bikes, fences, shower heads, chairs, bags, balcony railings, glass windows, etc.

We have taken it with us to many places around the world. Watch it live the life.

What to Look for When Purchasing Portable Power

With an overwhelming amount of portable batteries on the market today, shopping for one can be excruciating. Here's a list of things to look for when you're in the market for external batteries.

1. Type of Battery
It's best to look for ones that come with Samsung Lithium-Ion cells. The lesser the charge leak, the more the battery will last even when not in use. Lithium-Ion batteries do not store memory, which means no need to fully charge the device before using it, which is a great bonus.

2. Built-In Circuit Protection
Not all companies invest the time and money to make sure their products are 100% safe so keep an eye out for companies that include "Built-In Circuit Protection" on their website or on their products.

3. Lab Tested
In-house as well as third-party lab tested to ensure your product is high quality and will keep you connected. This is something you do want to pay extra for, as well as built-in circuit protection.

4. At Least 500 Charging Cycles
That means your battery will last for at least 500 full charges, which if used daily at its full capacity, should last at least 17 months. In this case, invest in companies that offer at least an 18-month warranty on their products.

5. Auto OFF
This is important because you don't want to forget your device on and lose a full charge, time after time. Auto OFF means when your device hasn't been used for a while, your battery automatically shuts off, conserving power.

6. Indicator Lights
This helps you keep track of your battery. It is your battery's way of communicating with you to let you know when it is time to charge it again. Very helpful when you're mobile.

7. Versatile
This all depends on your needs and budget. Do you need it to charge your phone as well as your laptop? If so, look out for the battery's capacity, usually ranging between 2200 mAh and 10400 mAh. Even better, you can purchase ones that also jump starts your car, boat, ATV, motorcycle and etc. You want to pay attention to their Starting and Peak current, and preferably choose one that is water resistant if you're in the market for charging your phone and jump starting your car or boat with the same device. For example, Weego's N44 charges your phone, laptop, jump starts your car, boat, ATV and fits in your pocket with its compact design.

High quality and long lasting is key when choosing your next portable power companion, and always remember, "good batteries aren't cheap, cheap batteries aren't good - why take chances?" - Weego

You Can Turn Old Speakers into Wireless Devices

You have old wired speakers that sound really good but don't have wireless capabilities? There's a solution for that. It's called a Logitech Bluetooth Audio Adapter and it is very easy to set up. Just plug it into your old wired speakers and control the speakers wirelessly from any Bluetooth enabled device. This small adapter allows you to play or stream music from your phone, tablet and even laptop, wirelessly, even if your speakers are not wireless.

Same goes to speakers that are Play-Fi enabled as opposed to Bluetooth enabled. Play-Fi is a technology that allows for wireless capabilities, but via Wi-Fi. Meaning, if you don't have Wi-Fi, then you won't be able to control your device wirelessly. You can use the Logitech Audio Adapter to add bluetooth capabilities to Play-Fi speakers as well.

The adapter is small and highly responsive. We have tested it with Yamaha old wired speakers, computer speakers, Polk Audio Play-Fi speakers, and so on, and never did it disappoint.

The adapter works with computer speakers, home stereo systems and AV receivers.
It weights only 34 g and is 1" high, 2" wide and 2" deep. It takes the shape of a square.

You can also have two devices connected at once and it has a range of 15 meters!
So you can have your phone and laptop connected to the speaker and play from any room, wirelessly, as long as you're within a 15 meter range.

So don't throw out those old speakers yet.

How to Fly a Drone Safely in Canada

Looking into purchasing or own a drone but have safety concerns?
We have put together a list of things to consider as advised by Transport Canada.

But first, what is a drone?
Simply put, a drone is a Smartphone or remote operated aircraft or robot.
Most drones have built-in cameras, which makes them highly useful and fun when traveling and capturing aerial views. Drones can be used for various purposes, such as by government officials, tracking wildfires, animal migrations, and most recently they are entering the delivery business.

But flying a drone comes with safety concerns since it falls under the Unmanned Air Vehicle category (UAV), or Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). Here's what to consider before purchasing a drone, recommended by Transport Canada.

1. Location
Stay away from airports, heliports, or aerodromes. As long as you keep a 9 km distance, you'll be Okay. Don't fly over 295 feet above ground, and make sure you are at least 492 feet away from people, animals, cars, buildings, etc. That includes festivals and sporting events. It is also advised to stay away from highways or anywhere where flying a drone could endanger people. And lastly, fly the drone away from hospitals, fire stations, ambulances, military bases, and so on. Keep in mind that flying your drone over private property could be considered illegal.

2. Weight and Purpose of Use
Good news is, if your drone weighs 35 kgs / 77 pounds or less, and you're flying it just for fun, you don't need "special permission" to operate it, but should still take some precautions.
If you're using a drone for work or research, you must obtain a Special Flight Operations Certificate (SFOC). In the last 6 years, Transport Canada has issued 5,679 approvals for UAVs, and there is no fee. It does however take up to 20 days for an approval.

3. Weather Conditions
It is not advised to fly the drone when it is cloudy or foggy.
Avoid flying it at night to prevent colliding with unseen objects.

4. Drone's Status
Make sure your drone is safe for flight before operating it.
Check on the batteries, make sure all parts are well intact, etc.

Keep in mind that each country has its own rules and regulations. It is advised to always check before taking your drone abroad. Fortunately, as drones become more and more popular, information on the internet is becoming more available. Safe flight!


Progressive Sales Canada now carries the UE Megaboom, a louder and bigger version of the UE BOOM! The UE Megaboom is waterproof and comes with an app allowing its users to customize the wireless speaker to their preferred EQ settings.

Just under 2 pounds and 8 inches, the UE Megaboom is extremely portable and is not high maintenance. It is designed to be shock roof and waterproof so it can be taken literally anywhere. Its cylindrical shape delivers 360 degrees sound and maximizes the speaker's flexibility.  With its bottle like shape, the speaker can be placed in bottle holders such as those on bicycles or fitness exercise equipment.

It can also be simultaneously paired with another UE Megaboom speaker to create a loud and portable sound system. Logitech designed the UE Megaboom to make music social and offer a rechargeable battery with a 20 hour battery life! The battery is also serviceable, which means it can be replaced in case of damage.  An included USB cable charges the speaker which can then operate wirelessly with a 100ft range! The UE Megaboom can be immersed in liquid up to 1 m for up to 30 minutes!  It works great for pool hangouts, water sports, beach days, biking, and so on. Its design allows it to be hung on shower walls, patios and balconies.

Referred to as "The BOOM King" by WIRED, the UE Megaboom has been repeatedly applauded for its great bass, impressive sound quality, attractive design, and highly competitive features. The speaker comes with two drivers and two passive radiators with a frequency range of 65Hz - 20kHz. It delivers crystal clear sound and its volume capacity won't disappoint.

Every Remote You Will Ever Need

We are very excited to announce that Logitech has released two new products to its Harmony line that will allow users to control thermostats, lights, locks, blinds, music, movies, game consoles and much more, from their Harmony remotes, Smartphones or tablets.

1. Harmony Elite

The most powerful, intuitive Harmony remote for entertainment and home control. It allows users to control thermostats, lights, blinds, music, videos, game consoles and more, from the included colour touch screen remote or their Smartphones and tablets.


It comes with an IR and RF based colour touch screen universal rechargeable remote, a Harmony Hub which allows you to control Wi-Fi and Bluetooth devices, and 2 IR Mini Blasters which extend the IR signal.

With the Harmony Elite, you can use your Smartphone or tablet as your universal remote by downloading the Harmony app.  This gives you a full home automation experience from your phone!

The app comes with a soft keyboard for easy browsing when using internet streaming services such as Netflix, Apple TV, and Roku.

2. Harmony Companion

The Harmony Companion delivers the same benefits as the Harmony Elite with one slight difference:  Instead of the colour touch screen remote, users get a simplified remote.

Here's why:

It is for those who choose to use their Smartphone or tablet as their universal remote at all times. The RF-based simplified universal remote comes as back-up or a nice-to-have option.

The Harmony Companion focuses on home automation and complete control of your audio and video equipment from your phone!
