Ninety7 intros portable battery cases for the Google Home, Amazon Echo Dot

Echo Show

CIRP also estimates 15 million Amazon Echo units sold across the US, which is up from 10.7 million in March and 5.1 million this past November, according to data from CIRP.

Ninety7 now has the LOFT and DOX as portable battery bases for two of the most popular smart speakers today. The accessory which was introduced by the Ninety7 startup back in March, could turn the Echo Dot into an Alexa-powered portable speaker. At IFA, we saw upcoming portable speakers with Google Assistant built-in, but what if I already bought a Google Home and don't feel the need to buy another speaker? Not anymore. Snap off your Google Home base and add the metallic LOFT instead and voila! you won't have to leave your Google Home behind as you move from room to room inside your house. It is priced at $39.95 but for a limited time and when you pre-order from, you can have it for only $29.95. It also has the added benefit of making Google's smart speaker look even more like a little Dalek.

Manafort offered to give 'private briefings' on 2016 campaign to Russian billionaire
The Clinton/Obama-friendly media went ballistic over President Trump's tweeted accusation that President Obama had wiretapped him. At this time , there is no evidence to confirm that Deripaska received Manafort's offer or that any such briefings took place.

LOFT is available in a choice of Carbon Black, Snow White and Copper Fabric with metal trim for the base.

LOFT attaches to the bottom of the Google Home, clinging there via magnets in a similar way to how Google's own interchangeable speaker covers fit. The introductory price of the Ninenty7 LOFT is also lower at $39.95 from the $49.95 retail price. 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. Ninety7 will start shipping the product this October. If yes, then will you be interested in buying LOFT for it?
