If you're looking to add a little old-school convergence to your mobile accessories, you might want to check out Best Buy's deal portal this weekend. The JBL Charge 2, a high-quality portable Bluetooth speaker that can also charge your phone or tablet, is on sale for a significant discount. The speaker costs $149.99 at retail, but you can grab it for just $79.99 today with free shipping.
This is a new unit, not refurbished, and it's available in black, white/grey, blue, red, and purple. The all-in-one unit includes features 15 watts of combined sound with a 1.625-inch woofer and bass port for clearly-defined lows. The integrated 6000mAh battery can recharge most flagship phones about twice (though playing music and charging devices at the same time will obviously drain that battery faster). Standard Bluetooth is the preferred connection option, but the Charge 2 includes a standard headphone jack for music sources without it.
If you'd like something with a little more bling, the original JBL Pulse is also on sale - it includes a series of LEDs around the body for a mobile light show. That speaker is $149.99 today, $50 off of the retail price, but it doesn't include the capability to charge other gadgets. Both sales don't have any particular time limit set on them, but I would hurry; that big discount on the Charge 2 means that stock online and in local stores might disappear quickly.
The deal on all 5 colors is back again for today:
