This explains why Bluetooth speakers usually last for many hours.
When two devices with Bluetooth technology are paired together, one of them will be the controlling party. The other device will be the passive party. If a mobile device is paired with the Bluetooth speakers, the mobile device like handphone will be the controlling party and the speakers will be the passive party. The Bluetooth speakers will stop playing music when the mobile device is not within range. The passive party usually serves the active party on a first-come-first-serve basis. The active device which is connected will stay connected till it drops out for another device to take over. Recently, some devices and phone apps allow priority setting of Bluetooth devices. For most of us, a simple first-come-first-serve basis should be sufficient for our Bluetooth speakers.
