A powerful speaker that has a 12-hour battery life, USB port for charging your phone, and mic for speakerphone calls.

Amazon has the Beats Pill+ Bluetooth Speaker listed at just $109.90 right now in black, with the red version version also on sale at $109.95. If you want the white model, it is discounted too (although not as steeply) at $129. These speakers regularly sell for around $180 when not on sale and today’s prices are among their best ever.

The Beats Pill+ is a portable speaker that packs a level of sound bigger than its compact form factor suggests. Improving on its predecessor, it features a new stereo active two-way crossover system to create an optimized sound and dynamic range for all musical genres with a 12-hour battery life. It is recharged via its built-in Lightning port — meaning you can plug it into your iPhone’s charger and don’t have to carry an extra cable — and it also has a USB-A port that will let you charge your phone directly from the Pill+.

As well as connecting via Bluetooth and streaming from your phone as usual, you can alternatively use the Pill+ app that allows you and a friend to control the playback of one speaker from two devices, or use it to pair up two Beats Pill+ speakers stereo sound.
