With Memorial Day weekend in the rear-view mirror and a summer full of fun and sun ahead of us, this is the one pool essential you never knew you needed. The ION Audio Party Float Bluetooth Speaker will not only play your favorite music (98PXY on the app, duh) with your phone safely outside the splash zone, it also functions as a drink holder for up to 10 drinks at a time—conveniently arranged in beer pong formation. It also has a built in mic so you can answer phone calls hands-free, plus an FM radio. Each box comes with the Party Float, a pong tray, ping pong balls, a power adaptor for the rechargeable battery, and a stereo aux cable. The whole thing costs $100 with a Sam's Club membership and comes with free shipping.
