The treVolo S comes packed with a nice array of features, and some I know don’t make any sense, but I will go through them, so bear with me. Let’s check out an unboxing to see everything that comes with it.
Not a lot is included but the basics.
First off, it comes with a AC adapter.
A close up, so that you can see all of the certifications, input and output ratings.
The adapter comes out to a micro USB connection that plugs into the back of the treVolo S.
The adapter I showed previously did look a little odd but it’s only because the outlet portion is not attached, it actually slides into the adapter.
Pop in the adapter here, and slide it in place.
Pretty nice, if the prong breaks, you don’t need to buy a new adpter, just buy the prong insert alone.
Along with the adapter is a Quick Guide. The guide goes over what’s included in the package, specifications, how to connect and some recommendations, in a few different languages.
With the Quick Guide, also included is a Warranty sheet to help you if you run into issues.
A handy little inclusion into the package is this treVolo pouch to help you keep this speaker portable and still looking nice when you have reached your destination and settled in.
Last but certainly not least, the trevelo S itself in all its glory.
In this next chapter, we will dig a little deeper to see what this speaker is all about. Trust me, looks can be deceiving.
