Sonos Roam: is its wireless charger worth buying? | Digital Trends Spanish

Sonos roam sets up as one of the best portable speakers of its kind, not only because of the clear and powerful sound it delivers, but also because of its multiple connection options. On the accessories side, we wonder if there are reasons to purchase your wireless charger (sold separately).

You will be interested in:

In the purchase package of the speaker the USB-A to USB-C cable does come which allows you to charge the Sonos Roam speaker. Only one port on the computer would have to be considered, for example, for this process.

What makes the wireless charger attractive is that it takes the hassle out of connecting and disconnecting audio equipment; It is only necessary to put it on the base so that it begins to feed on energy.

Reasons to consider the Sonos Roam wireless charger

A custom base

The Sonos Roam is compatible with other Qi certified chargers. However, experience tells us that it is better to use each base with the device that corresponds to it, especially to ensure proper operation.

The one dedicated to the Roam, in addition, facilitates an almost perfect alignment, thanks to the magnets that engage immediately. This makes the charger feel like part of the speaker frame, not a makeshift base.

Design in tune

It doesn’t matter if you have the speaker in black or white, as the wireless charger is also available in the same colors.

Also, the cable that connects the base to the power adapter (10 watts) is long enough, 1.2 meters to be exact, which makes it easy to put the system in any free space on the desk.

Finally, while charging, the speaker can continue to be used horizontally or vertically, depending on individual preferences.

Fast charge?

The dock doesn’t necessarily offer fast charging – the Sonos Roam goes from 0 to 50 percent in 120 minutes on paper. Yes, that could ensure about 300 minutes of playback or enough for a day of entertainment.

In our tests with the wireless charger, the speaker went from 20 to 100 percent of its charge in around 420 minutes (its status can be monitored from the Sonos app).

Our recommendation is to leave the Sonos Roam charging overnight. In the morning, the ideal would be to remove it from its base and use it until it reaches its low battery levels, by 20 percent. This will ensure full system performance for one day, up to 10 hours of playback on a full charge.


In the Sonos Roam purchase package is what you need to operate the speaker without problems, that is, it comes with the USB-A to USB-C cable. So, strictly speaking, the team owner would not have to worry about anything else.

As we anticipated, the attractiveness of the wireless charger is that it allows the charging of energy without much effort, just by placing the speaker on it, and it can be horizontal or vertical in the process.

The power adapter is also included with the wireless charger, so it could be used with the USB-A to USB-C cable for those times when it is necessary to take the speaker on the road.

If you have the budget, the cordless base will be a purchase that suits the Sonos Roam, especially since it keeps it on charge to respond to the sonic needs of each one without much complication.
