Yeah, but the crutchfield one doesn’t seem to have the battery power that this one has..

I suspect they’re exactly the same re-brand from an Asian parts vendor, the battery indicator is too similar to be coincidence, and the only difference in battery life is that the DLO is being more honest with 15 hours in the general whereas the Kensington says 30 hours and then puts (nano only) in small print.

The DX001 from is very simular. I have not been happy with it.
