Portable loudspeakers are always a tricky proposition. Generally, small speakers produce an equally small sound. If you do try to pump up the volume then the sound tends to become distorted.

Seem to have missed the two best portable speakers...

Saitek A200 for long trips where you are sure you have power and a bit more luggage space. (It really needs mains power.)

Sony SRS-T70 for short trips with only hand luggage. (Also allows un-amplified audio when you run out of power.)

What I need for talking newspaper playback use is an active speaker with a USB socket and which can play MP3 files from USB flash memory.
