We’re willing to bet that many people who purchased the Echo Dot — Amazon’s adorable hockey puck of a personal assistant — did so under the assumption that they’d be able to take it anywhere. It’s so small, so why not move it around the house or put it in your pocket and bring it outside, right?
Surprisingly, the Echo Dot doesn’t run on battery power, so it must be shackled to a wall socket in order to work.
But all is not lost, Dot devotees.
The Amazon Echo Dot Smart Battery Case lets you cut the cord and convert the diminutive device into a mobile Bluetooth speaker so you can take Alexa on the go. Add this accessory to your smart home setup now and take 32% off the regular price.
By nestling your Echo Dot in this battery case and connecting its ingenious little adapter into the device’s power port, you can go mobile with your Echo Dot for up to 15 hours. And as long as you can connect to a Wi-Fi network, you’ll be able to use the Alexa personal assistant. Carry Amazon’s digital assistant all around the kitchen as you cook and ask for help with timers or music. Even when you can’t connect to Wi-Fi, the case makes the Echo Dot into an awesome mobile speaker; simply connect a smartphone or other media player via Bluetooth and you’ve got a portable party just waiting to pop off.
Though it’s designed to house the Echo Dot, the case doesn’t discriminate. It can also accommodate the similarly-sized Google Home Mini, and act as a power bank for nearly any other device thanks to its USB-C charging port. While connected, its LED indicators will let you know how much juice is left, and its intelligent battery management system will safeguard against overloads and charging fatigue.
Upgrade your Echo Dot to the untethered mobile device it was meant to be. You can buy the Smart Battery Case today for $26.99, reduced from its regular price of $39.99.
