Like if this guide is helpful
Although many portable devices such as MP3 players, tablets, eBook readers, and sometimes even laptop computers have built-in speakers, they often feature minimal sound quality. Mini speakers, similar to regular computer speakers, are smaller and generally powered either by rechargeable batteries or via an available USB port. The top mini speakers come in a wide range of sizes, shapes, and styles, and consumers can find these, and other, mini speakers on eBay or at local electronics stores. Shoppers looking for mini speakers should consider their sound quality as well as power source when considering which ones to purchase.
