It might be the sales on big TVs and high-end electronics which get the most attention this weekend, but Black Friday is a great time to pick up smaller gadgets too. If you’ve been waiting to get your hands on a wireless way to play music, then there are great Black Friday deals on portable Bluetooth speakers this year. One speaker bargain you can pick up right now is the JBL Charge 4 Portable Bluetooth Speaker.
Normally $180, the speaker is $80 off today at Best Buy, which means it’s down to $100. The device is both lightweight and waterproof, with a IPX7-rated waterproof chassis. It’s tough too, designed to resist accidental drops and being thrown in a bag. That makes it the ideal choice for using at the pool or the beach, or taking to parties or picnics. With 20 hours of playback and a thumping, bass-heavy sound, it’s the perfect party companion to bring the tunes with you wherever you go.
The speaker comes in a wide range of colors to express your personality — from fiery fiesta red to cool camouflage, with trendy options like dusty pink, mustard yellow, and river teal as well as the classics of black, dark blue, grey, forest green, and white. The battery charges via USB Type-C and it does come with a charging cable, so you’ll get everything you need to take this speaker out and about.
An affordable alternative: The JBL Clip 3 — $30 ($40 off)
If you like the idea of a portable speaker but you’re looking to spend less, then a great alternative from the same brand is the JBL Clip 3, which is $40 off this weekend, down to just $30. This flat, clippable speaker can easily be hung from just about anywhere thanks to its integrated carabiner, and it comes in a wide range of funky colors. It’s also IPX7 waterproof and has 10 hours of playback.
There are tons more deals on portable speakers for Black Friday, including other JBL products and many more brands too.
