On the hunt for a grad gift or dad gift? I have just the thing.
For a limited time, and while supplies last, the Tribit XSound Go portable waterproof Bluetooth speaker is just $23.82 when you apply promo code TBINST20 at checkout. It normally sells for $36, already a pretty stellar deal. (That said, it was a tad lower — $21.44 — a few months back.)
If you’re a regular Cheapskate reader, you know that a Bluetooth speaker in this price range isn’t uncommon. But theis notable for a few reasons, not the least of which is that — and found it “an excellent mini speaker for the money.”
For starters, it’s fully waterproof. Themeans it can actually survive being immersed in water — so no problem if it accidentally falls in the pool or lake. (Just to be clear, though, it does not float.)
You also get pretty amazing battery life: up to 24 hours at medium volume. Just make sure to allow yourself a good 4 hours to fully recharge that battery.
Finally, there’s sound quality. I haven’t tested the XSound Go myself, but Carnoy put it through its paces. Verdict: very good overall, if a bit lacking in bass.
Tribit backs the speaker with an 18-month warranty, which is also above average for a product like this. This is easy to recommend at $36, but at $24? Cheapskate Seal of Approval, no question.
