When first released these were $150 and way overpriced. Now get that ruggedness at a tenth of the price.

Is this deal for me?

The Braven BRV-1S ultra-rugged waterproof Bluetooth speaker is down to $14.99 with code THRFTRBRAVEN at Daily Steals. This price is at least $10 better than refurbs at sites like Tech Rabbit and, for some odd reason, Better Homes & Gardens. This is also half the price of a new speaker at Amazon.

Features include:

  • Stream your music over Bluetooth by syncing with a compatible device.
  • The BRV-1s is protected from rainfall, water jets, and water splashing.
  • It can be submerged 1m for up to 30 minutes.
  • Charge your mobile device using the speaker's built-in 1800mAh Lithium-ion battery.
  • Built-in noise-canceling microphone can be used to take and make calls hands-free.

The refurb comes with a minimum 90-day warranty, and you can expand that to a year or two if you want to pay extra. Although, $15 is basically a use-it-til-it-dies sort of price if you ask me.

TL;DR

  • What makes this deal worth considering? - When the Braven BRV-1 was first released it was praised for its ruggedness and derided for its cost. Now you can get the first without the second. This is the best price on a refurb we can find anywhere else.
  • Things to know before you buy! - This is a refurbished unit, but it comes with a 90-day warranty.

See at Daily Steals

Happy Thrifting!
