How to Shop for a Bluetooth Speaker

You should check the battery life of the speaker first. A long battery is essential if you plan to take the speaker with you outdoors. Look for at least 10 hours for an optimal performance.

The next thing that you want to make sure is that the speaker is waterproof. This way you can bring the speaker with you to the pool or beach without having to worry about water getting splashed on it. There are different degrees of waterproof, so be sure to check whether it can just survive a small splash or if it can be fully submerged.

The last thing that you want to check is the sound quality. You want enough bass so that the party has life. You also want it to be able to get loud enough so that it can fill a room with sound. Read the reviews to see if the speaker matches these criteria.

Black Friday is by far the best day of the year to get a Bluetooth speaker. As you can see, there are a ton of options and choosing between them is hard.
