Speaking of spring and picnic weather, JBL’s Charge 5 is down to around $140 at Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart right now.

What’s more, the IP67-rated speaker is conveniently outfitted with a USB-A port, which means you can use it to top off your smartphone, tablet, and other external devices without having to step inside.
