If you’ve tried Amazon’s voice assistant Alexa you know just how powerful it is and it is available on a multitude of devices. The hottest selling device from Amazon is the affordable Dot, priced at $49.99, that is about the size of a hockey puck. It contains all of the brains that its larger sibling has, the Echo, minus the powerful speaker. The Dot lacks portability that the Amazon Tap offers, making it the runt of the bunch. But an all new accessory is looking to make it much more powerful and portable.
The VAUX, from Ninety7, is the world’s first battery and speaker combination that’s intelligently designed to set your Dot free.
Priced at just $49, the VAUX makes the dot sound like the Echo while adding the portability of the Tap. The cost of the Dot and VAUX are still cheaper than the Tap at $129, and much cheaper than the Echo which is priced at $179.99. The VAUX is designed for the Dot to sit inside of it with right-sized cables in the back. With a 2500mAh internal battery, it has up to six hours of cordless use, and recharges with the same microUSB plug that is used to power the Dot.
The sound is powered by dual 52mm active speakers with an even larger 50 x 90mm passive radiator for deep bass. If you decide you no longer want to use it with your Dot, you can always use the speaker with any portable device that has a 3.5mm audio jack. With spring and summer just around the corner, the VAUX is perfect for those who love to spend outside by the pool or BBQ. This is the best accessory I’ve seen for the Dot and expect the VAUX to sell very well with its affordable price tag of just $49.
It comes in two colors, black and white just like the Dots.
You can pre-order the VAUX now for $49 at www.ninety7life.com. Expect the VAUX to ship in early April.
