Incorporating the company's phone mount on the back, this game call can be controlled entirely through the app, making it almost fully hands-free. It connects to the phone via a USB-C cable which plugs into the audio jack (or audio-jack adapter on newer phones). Volume goes clearly up to 100 dB, while the unit is powered by a 3.7-volt lithium ion battery, with an over-five-hour runtime. Despite being rated for use on rifles up to 6.8 SPC, the unit only weighs in at 9.6 ounces with battery. Dimensions are 3-inches X 3-inches X 4-inches.
