If you want a portable speaker that has an internal battery and able to withstand some splashes of water (IPX5), check out the LG XBOOM Go PL7, PL5 and PL2. They are currently available now.
With competitive pricing of S$299 ( PL7), S$209 (PL5), and S$109 (PL2), and with their specs, I think they are value-for-money. Have not heard the sound quality yet. Hopefully, the bass and treble are distinct enough. Check out their specs.
