This cheapo works fine on Ubuntu 16.04 with kernel 4.4.0.
It does have Bluetooth low energy. It is offered by many vendors, one example below.
You have to compile the drivers though.

    Hi MarcFinns,

    Could you provide more info on the WiFi/BT chip (and drivers for linux) used by this USB dongle?

    After some investigations it appears based on Realtek RTL8723BU.
    I compiled the drivers based on these instructions (case 8 ).
    Hope it helps.
    NOTE: I did verify the functionality for both wifi and bt but did not carry out extensive testing especially on bt
