    Question Portable or portative

    Hello

    talking about a small loudspeaker one could either put in some place or clip to it's clothes, would you say that it's portable or portative?

    thanks very much

    Why? What is the difference between both? Doesn't seem so clear when looking at the dictionary

    thanks

    They are synonyms but "portable" is more used with modern devices[radios, computers, etc.]
