Outdoor Use and Care

Though Glow Rocker TM Pair is water-resistant and able to tolerate splashing water, please review these tips to get the best performance from Glow Rocker TM :

  • Bring Glow Rocker TM indoors during extreme cold, heavy rain, or melting snow.
  • Please do not place Glow Rocker TM in standing water.
  • Please do not connect the charging adapter to Glow Rocker TM in a wet environment.
  • Keep any non-water-resistant devices (phones, music players, etc.) in a dry place where they will not be affected by water and cause a risk of electric shock.
  • Make sure the charging port door is securely closed when using outdoors to ensure the IPX5 rating.


A. Bluetooth® LED: The Bluetooth LED will flash blue when in pairing mode and light solid blue when paired. See the Bluetooth Connecting with Glow Rocker ® to learn more.

  2. Navigate to your device’s Bluetooth setup screen, find Glow Rocker, and connect. When connected, the Bluetooth LED will be lit solid blue and you will hear “Connected”.

  3. To disconnect, turn off Bluetooth from your device’s Bluetooth settings.

Stereo Linking Two Glow Rocker Speakers

  1. With the first “primary” speaker powered off, press and hold the Power button for 6 seconds until you hear two short tones. The speaker will power on and enter stereo linking mode.
    Note: The first speaker will be the “primary” speaker, and play the Left channel. The second speaker will be the “secondary” speaker and play the right channel.
  2. Press and hold the Power button for 6 seconds to power on the second “secondary” speaker. The two speakers will automatically link together. A successful link will be indicated by a solid green LED on the primary speaker, a solid red LED on the secondary speaker, and you will hear “Connected” from the secondary speaker. The LEDs are located next to the input ports on the speaker’s side panel.
  3. On your Bluetooth device, navigate to your Bluetooth settings menu, find Glow Rocker, and connect. Once connected, you will hear “Connected” from the primary speaker.
    Note: The Bluetooth range will be determined by the distance that your Bluetooth device is to the primary speaker. Glow Rocker TM TM Pairs should be within 32’ (10 m) of each other to properly link. See Technical Specifications for Bluetooth and Linking ranges.

Light Modes

Quickly press and release the Power/Linking button to cycle through the available light modes:

• Solid White
• Active White
• Solid Red
• Active Red
• Solid Green
• Active Green
• Solid Blue
• Active Blue
• Off

For each active state, the LED will slowly fade in and out, and if music is playing, the LED will flash to the beat of the music.


If the unit is not charging: Make sure the micro-USB cable is properly connected to the power input, the power adapter and the power outlet.
If the sound is distorted: Try lowering the volume control of your sound source.
If there is too much bass: Try adjusting the tone or EQ control on your sound source to lower the bass level. This will allow you to play the music louder before clipping (distortion) occurs.

If you cannot connect your audio device to Glow Rocker via Bluetooth:

  • Have your audio device (e.g., smartphone or tablet) and Glow Rocker TM TM as close together as possible while trying to connect. Make sure both the audio device and Glow Rocker TM are unobstructed by walls, furniture, etc.
  • Reset the Bluetooth connection on Glow Rocker TM to disconnect Glow Rocker TM from any other audio device and restart the search process. If this does not work right away, power off Glow Rocker TM and then power it back on. See Bluetooth Connecting with Glow Rocker for more information.
  • Reset the Bluetooth connection on your audio device by turning Bluetooth off and back on. You can find this under the Bluetooth menu in the Settings for your phone or another audio device. If this does not work, and you have connected to Glow Rocker TM TM before, find Glow Rocker TM in the list of available or previously connected devices in your audio device’s Bluetooth menu, tap the “gear” or “i” icon located next to it and then select Unpair or Forget. Turn Glow Rocker TM off and back on and try pairing again once it reappears in the list of your available devices.

Note: If Glow Rocker TM has been paired to another audio device recently that is still within range, you may need to repeat this process with that audio device to fully disconnect.
