Kasa constantly makes some good stuff. This one, in particular, is good because this is one of the less expensive outdoor smart power adapters. So that's pretty cool. Get your Wi-Fi Outdoor Plug here.

Other products are more worthy than this one. You can replace it easily with the Audio-Technica AT-LPW40WN if you're looking for quality or with the Crosley if you're into the retro feel. See it here.

Sonos Roam Bluetooth Speaker

Other speakers like the Altec Lansing LifeJacket XL Jolt and the Altec Lansing GVA2 Live are a more solid option than Sonos. Learn more here.
