If you're looking for a portable speaker for your iPad, the developers of the WOWee One claim that they have the "perfect" accessory for you. Who doesn't claim this these days?

What really separates this device from other portable speakers that utilize surfaces for sound is the incorporation of gel audio technology, which produces bass frequencies approximately three octaves lower than comparably-sized units.

Built with a standard 3.5mm audio jack, the WOWee One can be partnered with many other devices including MP3 players and mobile phones. Users should be able to squeeze 20 hours of audio playback on a single full charge. The internal battery can be recharged by a computer via USB.

The WOWee One is priced at $79.99, and it is available for pre-order on Amazon now. No ship date has been specified yet.
