The California Roll Brings Your Party to Life with a Little Bit of Sunshine

California Roll by LEMON Technology is the first solar-powered waterproof speaker with voice recognition and portability to make it the perfect addition to any adventure

Las Vegas, NV – January 3, 2017 – When you are lounging by the pool, hiking through the hills with friends, or spending the day at the beach soaking up the sun, the last thing you want is an audio speaker that can’t keep up with you.

LEMON Technology’s newly released California Roll is a solar-powered compact speaker that can last up to 20 hours with just 7 hours of sunlight. Waterproof, shockproof and temperature proof, the California Roll is a great musical companion for even the most extreme outdoor adventurers.

Solar energy is one of the most prominent and preferred means in achieving sustainability. As everyone moves towards adapting this movement, they look for ways to decrease their carbon footprint and live in harmony with the natural world around them. Embodying this movement, LEMON has created the California Roll as the only sustainable and versatile wireless speaker that doubles as an extra battery pack for other electronic devices.

The LEMON California Roll produces the best quality sound on the market through the integration of its six internal speakers. Music flows above, below, and behind the listener, encompassing the listeners as if they were each wearing headphones.

Unlike other products on the market, the California Roll contains over 15 features that allow for a unique and sophisticated audio experience. With Bluetooth connectivity and multi-connection feature, users can connect up to 3 phones at once, allowing each person autonomy in choosing the next song from their own device. It can also be paired up, so any group with more than one California Roll can work in unison to deliver 2x the sound capacity.

In addition to its Bluetooth capabilities, the California Roll also uses Near Field Communication (NFC). This is a faster and much more reliable wireless device connection with less energy consumption compared to Bluetooth. Devices can also be directly connected to the speaker using the AUX input.

Besides delivering high quality audio, LEMON’s California Roll offers other useful features that differentiate it from competitors. For example, users can tap into the speaker’s solar power bank by plugging their device into the USB outlet at the side end of the California Roll. The power bank charges the personal device while simultaneously powering the speaker. Although optimal for outdoor settings, the California Roll can always be plugged directly into a wall outlet to lengthen duration for indoor use. On top of that, it contains a microphone allowing full voice recognition and hands-free use.

“As an on-the-go businessman, I’ve always found it difficult to lug all of the cords and cables of my electronic devices everywhere I went,” says founder and CEO Vincent Dupontreué. “So I created the California Roll as a solution, capturing sunlight and powering itself without any need for cords or hard to find outlets.”

With its stylish design and compact size, the California Roll is the perfect companion for any occasion out in the sun. With 33 solar cells lining its exterior, the speaker makes solar energy a personal experience. Say goodbye to the days when solar is used exclusively for the roofs of buildings and expansive land structures. The California Roll’s oval shape gives anyone, with big or small hands, the ability to hold solar in the palm of their hand and take it with them wherever they go.

The California Roll is available for preorder on the Lemon California website for $249 and comes in black, blue, red, silver and white in two different versions with a metal or cloth grill.


About LEMON Technology – Based in California between San Francisco and Santa Monica, and established in 2015, LEMON Technology is the brainchild of Vincent Dupontreué. With the goal to make a product that was both sustainable and fun, and inspired by his passion for music, Dupontreué created LEMON as a product for young, adventurous, and on-the-go listeners. The California Roll merges solar energy with style to provide users with a unique and high quality music experience.
