The new Ninety7 DOX is a portable battery for the 2nd Generation Amazon Echo Dot, created to provide rechargeable, cord-free mobility at home or on-the-go. The company must have realized the Vaux certainly has a market so it's releasing alternative options for the consumers. Featuring a sleek form factor, Google Home was created to fit in nicely with most any living room and performs the type of tasks you'd expect from a smart speaker. It has 4 LEDs on the front to show how much battery is still left and a premium metal perforated sleeve that should keep the same look you're used to with Google Home without hindering the sound's quality.
The Ninety7 DOX lets you enjoy portability all the time. I'm also not entirely sure what you'd use this for, since the Dot isn't exactly stellar as a music speaker, and you could buy a better Bluetooth speaker for $40. For those wondering how LOFT attaches to the Google Home, it attaches to the magnetic base system on the smart speaker.
First up is the Dox, which will sell for $39.95 (but is launching on sale for $29.95) and adds a rechargeable battery to the Dot that's supposed to let Amazon's tiny speaker run on its own for 10 hours. At the IFA 2017, we witnessed the first portable smart speaker with Google Assistant - Mobvoi TicHome Mini. Meanwhile, the Dox can give the Echo Dot ten hours of battery life on a single charge. Instead, it relies exclusively on the Echo Dot's own speaker, though Ninety7 says that the ash or carbon mesh fabric that wraps around the device won't interfere with the audio quality.
