So it will definitely work with no internet? If so that will be perfect for camping.
Yes in that situation Bluetooth automatically kicks in between the box and your tablet/phone. Useful at home to if your have a powercut. The receiver will work off one of those power bank batteries

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

The USB cable and connector needs to be a good one (assuming some 4-5W at 5.2 volts )

Correct. 2.5amp is the one supplied, changed out here though for one that fits our 3 pin mains

I can't see how it work With bluetooth for streaming, the signal finder would work.
Have you looked at whether the Tablet/Phone can connect directly to the built in WiFi, does it create a built in hotspot or something?
Sorely tempted to order one but information is lacking, checked their forum and they insist it needs internet lol.

Mine is connected to the LAN via the Ethernet adaptor supplied with an Ethernet cable. Then UDR WiFi for streaming to the phone. Not tried the Bluetooth TBH.
