The first way of ensuring a connection is with the latest Bluetooth technology built into the speaker, seeing as most mobile devices today have a Bluetooth feature.
The other way is through the NFC feature, which is a lot easier when trying to connect with your mobile devices.

However, while most have had very minimal issues when it comes to using this speaker, other have found issues when it comes to charging, as well as balancing the orb against the base. This may be attributed to the shape of the orb as it doesn’t really have an angled edge for it to stand on the base.
