Big Jambox Firmware Update Add Two Hours Battery Life, Better Everything

Owners of the Big Jambox are in for a treat. Just head over to the MyTalk page and administer a new firmware update. You ill be treated to two whole hours of extra battery life (in addition to the 15 you already enjoy) plus a host of genuinely hand new features.

AAC support gives a bigger range for anyone using an iDevice running iOS 6.1.x (and is what allows the extra battery life). You also get synced volume control (the buttons on the Jambox and the sliders on the iPhone both control the same absolute volume level) so you don’t have to crank the dial on both the iPhone and the speaker.

There’s also a new silent mode, accessed by powering up the talk and minus buttons pushed down, which mutes all annoying bloops, beeps and voice announcements.

What are you waiting for?

    Could the engineers who worked on this pop into the Microsoft Surface Pro offices on the way home please? Any extra battery life you can get out of that would be most welcomed! Plus they are almost the same shape so it should be familiar to work on :-)

    This is my absolute favorite Mac/iOS accessory. I’ve been more than pleased with the current battery life, but this makes it all the sweeter.
