ThunderPower Spotlight: The THUN-150 Megaphone

A THUN-150 megaphone and lapel mic are displayed next to a school administrator using this megaphone in the hallway around students. A tagline reads,

Even if a megaphone is small, that doesn’t mean it can’t pack a punch. Case in point: the THUN-150. As the most compact member of the ThunderPower lineup, it’s often used by educational staff, parade operators, day care workers, tour group leaders, coaches, and event planners. Learn more about why we call the THUN-150 megaphone “real power in a tiny package,” as well as helpful tips and specials that are currently available for this model.

Sound and Range

All ThunderPower megaphones offer exceptional sound quality and clarity, and that includes the THUN-150. Your voice will easily be heard up to 600 yards away, and you can utilize a siren or whistle when you really need to get people’s immediate attention. An audio input is also available for connecting a lapel mic or other audio devices.

Handling

Its compact size (weighing slightly over 2 pounds) and ergonomic pistol grip both make the THUN-150 a cinch to carry and operate. Volume control and audio selection for voice, siren, and whistle are all conveniently placed above the grip so that you can quickly adjust them with your thumb. 

Durability

Made with industrial-grade plastic, this megaphone is designed to take more than its fair share of bumps and scratches that are expected from repeat use. Plus, all 150s come with reinforced-nylon, web-wrist lanyards to prevent drops and loss.

Power

The THUN-150 boasts 15 watts of power and only requires 8 AA batteries for long-lasting service. When it’s finally time to swap those batteries out for replacements, this megaphone’s design makes it fast and convenient to do so — no complicated searches or tricks to open the battery compartment required. (Consider purchasing rechargeable batteries to save on replacement costs.)

Design

Its five-inch-diameter bell and eight-inch chassis offer 90-degree sound projection that lends itself well for indoor and outdoor situations.

Warranty

All 150s come with a “full 1 year, expedited in-house express warranty” for your complete peace of mind.

Now that we’ve covered the benefits of the THUN-150 megaphone, let’s discuss some tips you can apply when using it.

Tip #1: Flip Your Batteries

We already highlighted rechargeable batteries as a way to save money while keeping your megaphone powered. You might also consider flipping your batteries in their slots when you put your megaphone into storage. This prevents the possibility of it being activated while you’re away, which would needlessly drain its batteries.

Tip #2: Add the THUN-150 to Your Disaster Kit

People often think about including flashlights and radios in their disaster kits, but they may not realize just how beneficial megaphones can be. This is especially true for the THUN-150. Thanks to its smaller size and portability, it can be easily stored for emergency use and provide long-lasting power until help arrives.

Tip #3: Speak Loudly and Directly Into the Microphone

If you think your megaphone is too loud, don’t worry about adjusting your voice by speaking softer or by holding the megaphone farther away from you. Always speak directly into the microphone and always speak loudly — adjusting the volume on the model itself will handle the rest.
