This deal is a rerun from earlier this month, but it's back in stock and available in more colors -- just in time for Father's Day. Woot!
Do you like music? And showers? Most speakers shouldn't go anywhere near water, but this one can: For a limited time, and while supplies last, the VicTsing SoundHot C6 5W wireless water-resistant speaker is $9.99 with promo code VICTSINGC6. That code works with the green, orange and teal blue colors.
The speaker'squalifies it as water resistant. That means it can survive splashes, like in a shower, but not submersion, like in a tub. Why you'd want to submerge a speaker is beyond me, but I suppose the important distinction is that this unit isn't guaranteed to survive accidental dunks in, say, a tub or pool. It probably can (see some of the user reviews); it's just not rated for that.
But if you want to play it in the shower, feel free. There's actually a suction cup included for such mounting options.
There's also a loop up top that you can use to attach the speaker to, say, a faucet handle or shower head -- and VicTsing supplies a small carabiner for just that purpose.
The speaker can play for up to six hours (assuming 70-percent volume) on a charge, according to VicTsing. It has a built-in microphone, so you can take calls on it as well. (Whether you want to take them while you're in the shower is entirely up to you.)
Reviews: A 4.3-star average from nearly 8,000 buyers. Don't expect miracles from a small, 5-watt speaker, but at this price I suspect you'll be pretty satisfied. Already bought one? Hit the comments and let me know what you think!
One last note: Recently I had cause to contact VicTsing support for an issue with a mouse. I received a prompt reply and, within a few days, a warranty replacement. Your mileage may vary, of course, but I just wanted to share a positive customer-service story from a brand most people probably haven't heard of.
