carrying the soundlink mini

• Stand the speaker on its base. Standing the speaker on any other side may cause damage to the speaker and affect sound quality.•

 

This is posted in the instructions for the soundlink mini. While I assume they mean when playing, perhaps this applies to when it is off as well. Ambiguous at best. For instance when traveling and the mini is in your suitcase being jostled around by the baggage handlers! Are you damaging the unit that much? Is it really THAT delicate?

According to Bose, the warning about not standing the mini II ONLY applies to when the unit is ON. Also for extra protection they suggest placing the unit in "ship mode" (not included in their online manual). While the unit is plugged in to a power source, press and hold the power button for 10 seconds, then unplug the unit while still holding the power button. To release or turn the unit on again, plug the unit into a power source and hold down the power button for 10 seconds.
