How can you pair the Anker SoundCore 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!
Ensure that the Anker SoundCore speaker is turned on and the battery fully charged. Do not separate the two devices for more than 3 feet while pairing. Turn on the speaker using the power button on the top.
Upon first start, the Anker speaker is automatically set to the pairing mode and the blue LED flashes rapidly. If you have used the speaker before, simply press the Bluetooth button. The speaker is now ready for pairing and can be connected with other Bluetooth enabled devices. – If no device will be connected within 10 minutes, the speaker will automatically turn off.
Turn on the Bluetooth mode on your mobile device. It will automatically search for other Bluetooth enabled devices nearby. Select the “Anker SoundCore” device from the list. Has the pairing been successful, the speaker’s LED will stay solid blue. – In case your mobile device requests a password, please try the combination “0000” or “8888“.
Step 4 (optional)
If you want to connect the Anker SoundCore speaker with another device, simply turn off the Bluetooth function on the first device (for instance “disconnect”) OR press the Bluetooth button on the speaker. The Anker SoundCore will switch back to the pairing mode in order to connect to another device. Follow again the above steps 1 to 3.
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.
The speaker does not support connecting / pairing with another speaker. However, if you want to run two speakers in parallel, you can manually connect both with a 3.5mm cinch cable (Y-cable).
The following functions can be controlled via the four different buttons.
