We get sent a lot of free tech at Android Authority, but I just bought the JBL Flip 5 Bluetooth speaker myself. It arrived yesterday and I already love it, although if I were in the US then I’d be kicking myself because it’s now on sale at a much better price from Woot. While stocks last, you can pick it up for just $79.99 ($40 off).
The JBL Flip 4 is first on our list of the best Bluetooth speaker for under $100, but the Flip 5 doesn’t usually fall into that category. The latest model in the line maintains the same powerful 12-hour battery and tough build while adding improved charging and an all-new racetrack-shaped driver.

The sound is fantastic from my new addition, especially the bass that’s packed into the compact unit. While I’m not planning to throw it in a lake any time soon, the IPX7 covering means that it’s completely water-resistant down to three meters. The JBL app also allows you to pair your speakers together — up to 100 at a time — and synchronize the music.
This deal isn’t as fleeting as many Woot sales, but this is a popular Bluetooth speaker so we expect stocks to move pretty quickly. Hit the widget below to check out the offer for yourself.
