Step aside, Stanley — fans are thirsty for this hi-tech water bottle.

The Stanley tumbler has become an unexpected phenomenon in recent months, with desperate customers causing in-store chaos while frantically trying to secure the coveted canteen.

But a water bottle that’s much larger, half the price, and fitted with slick new technology may soon usurp the Stanley.

Five Below recently released the Water Bottle With Wireless Speaker — an 82.8oz (2.45L) jumbo tumblr with a built-in bluetooth speaker.

It’s wireless, rechargeable and retails for just $15.

That’s far cheaper than the Stanley tumblers, which typically range in price between $35 and $45, depending on size and style.

The popular Stanleys are either 30oz or 40oz — the sizes that come with a side handle and straw and the slim base that can easily fit into a car cupholder.

Five Below’s bottle comes with a charging cord and the speaker is IPX 4 water resistant, so no need to worry about getting it wet by the pool or at the beach.

According to Amazon search data, the insulated 40-oz Stanley Quencher Tumbler with a side handle and straw was a top-searched product on the platform this holiday season.

One video on TikTok posted by Victoria Robino shows customers pushing and shoving to get the limited-edition Valentine’s Day Stanley — Stanley’s exclusive Galentine’s Collection available only at Target.

But Casey Lewis, a youth consumer trends analyst who writes the newsletter After Schooltold Business Insider that she thinks the hype is already dying down.

“They are absolutely on their way out. This is peak Stanley,” she proclaimed. “There’s no up from here!”

Lewis might be onto something.

Five Below’s new water bottle is more than twice the size of the Stanley and comes at less than half the price.

Plus is can play tunes — making it music to customers’ ears.
