How can you pair the Anker SoundCore Mini speaker with a mobile device via Bluetooth? What do the different LED colors mean? How to use the buttons?
CAUTION: Electrical Device. Read the safety instructions!
Turn on the SoundCore Mini speaker using the main switch (sliding switch) on the unit’s side. Then select the Bluetooth mode by pressing the “Mode” button which is located on the left side of the main switch. Pressing the button several times allows to switch between the different input sources: Bluetooth, AUX-In jack, FM radio and microSD card.
Switch on the Bluetooth mode on your mobile device. It will automatically search for Bluetooth enabled devices nearby. The blue LED flashes while the two devices connect (pairing). Once the connection is established, the LED turns solid blue.
The speaker will always try to connect to the last used device (mobile phone, tablet, computer) once powered up. In case a connection cannot be established, the speaker switches back to the pairing mode.
Step 4 (optional)
If you want to connect the SoundCore Mini speaker with another device, simply turn off the Bluetooth function on the first device (for instance “disconnect”) OR press the “Mode” key for 3 seconds on the speaker. The SoundCore Mini switched back to the pairing mode in order to connect to another device.
As soon as you plug in the audio cable into AUX-In or slide in a microSD (secure digital) card, these media types will be automatically recognized and the playback starts immediately.
To use the radio mode, simply plug the supplied USB cable into the USB socket of the loudspeaker. It is used as the radio antenna. You can also charge the speaker with the USB cable and connect the speaker via Bluetooth simultaneously.
The following functions can be controlled via the four different buttons.
