The built-in mic carries on your side of the conversation, while the other party is heard through the VG3 speaker.

- Simple Control: The Soundcast VG3 features a capacitive touch interface to power the speaker on/off, adjust the volume, and control basic playback function. A fuel-gauge LED array shows power, battery and volume. Both are found on the top of the speaker.
- Rechargeable Battery Pack: The included rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack (5700mAh) provides up to 15 hours of playback (varies by volume level). The included battery pack can be recharged by plugging the supplied microUSB-to-USB cable into the microUSB port of the VG3 and a USB/AC power adapter (sold separately). The microUSB port is protected by a rubber cover. A full charge takes about 5 hours. A LED indicator will light red when charging and will turn orange when fully charged. When low on power, the LED indicator will blink red.
