Anker makes so many of our favorite tech accessories that we rounded them up in one shoppable story. In that story, among the brand’s portable charger and 10-foot-long lightning cord, is this Soundcore portable speaker, which also appears on our list of the best-rated portable speakers on Amazon. The fully waterproof speaker has a 12-hour battery life, so a single charge is all you need to start the day with a favorite podcast before switching to some light news and then turning on a playlist while you cook. In addition to volume controls, the speaker has a button you can use to adjust its bass, which can also be adjusted via Anker’s compatible app that’s free to download. (The app allows you to tinker with even more stuff, like the speaker’s equalizer.) As one reviewer puts it, “I think you would be hard-pressed to find anything at this price point that comes anywhere even remotely close to the awesomeness you get with this speaker.” In other words, the only thing that could make this speaker better is if it were cheaper — and today, at just $45, it happens to be the cheapest we’ve ever seen it.
