'Truly waterproof': This popular wireless speaker is a whopping 70% off — grab it for $40

What is it?

When the party moves outdoors — whether you're tailgating or you're into fall camping — the kind of wireless speaker you use makes all the difference. You don't want something small and wimpy with no bass, but you also don't want a speaker that can't handle a little bit of water. For that there's no better choice than the Vanzon V40 speaker. The Vanzon is a lightweight portable speaker with a range of up to 66 feet from its connected device, so you can place these on the porch and leave them connected to a computer in the house if you want to keep your phone away from splashes.

With 24W of sound and 24 hours of play time, this speaker will keep the party thumping long into the night.

Why is this a good deal?

A wild deal, this speaker is marked down to just $40 — it was $130! That means you'll save $92. We haven't seen the price this low since mid-summer and now that we're inching our way toward fall, you never know when Mother Nature will toss some rain your way.

Why do I need these?

This is an upgraded model of a speaker we've covered previously, that comes with bigger, better sound, extended playtime and much more.

The Vanzon V40 comes with TWS technology that lets you pair up to two of these speakers together for an improved stereo sound. You can create a cinema-like experience this way — or you can just crank up the volume outdoors for an even better party. These speakers are rated IPX7, too, which means it's great for use at the beach or the pool. If it falls in, no big deal — although you shouldn't leave them in the rain or shower with them.

It's lightweight at just 1.3 pounds, and the 3,600mAh battery provides up to 24 hours of total playback time on a single charge. You can connect to it through a 3.5mm AUX port, through USB-C, Bluetooth, and much more. It's ideal for taking on the go or just for using in your home to boost your TV's audio. Whatever the reason, you'll enjoy this speaker.

What reviewers say

More than 8,000 shoppers give this speaker a perfect five-star rating. 

"All I can say is WOW! This little speaker is packed with power for its size! Paired instantly with my iPhone 11. Set up was very easy. I had it up and going right out of the box, it came with a full charge as well. It also charges pretty quickly, usually only about 2 hours," cheered one user. "The sound quality is extraordinary, with some good bass to it as well. Truly tested waterproof! Left it outside accidentally and it rained! Still works like new, had it for about 2 months now."

"I needed a Bluetooth speaker for the garage because that's where I do my exercises. When I placed the order for this particular one, I ordered it because of it's "cuteness". But underneath the cuteness, was a speaker worth that was easy to connect to, stylish, and has great sound quality! Of course, after my teenage daughter heard the music coming from it, I knew it was no longer mine or for just the garage!! It's small and MIGHTY!" said another fan.

"I use this speaker to watch movies during camping trips," wrote a rave reviewer. "We will watch movies outdoor with the fire pit going. The speaker is loud enough even if you are sitting 20 feet away with all background noise. It sounds great!!! Battery last thru 2 movies without any issues. It never loses connection either. Can't ask for more from the wireless Bluetooth speaker. It charges quickly as well."
