If, like me, you opted for the compact Amazon Echo Dot but now find you want to add a portable speaker with Alexa powers what can you do? Well, now, you can get Vaux! This new speaker enables you to unleash the power of Alexa with the First Battery-Powered Speaker Created Specifically for the Amazon Echo Dot.
Vaux has been designed to enhance the Dot experience. We in the UK can now unplug Alexa and take her around the home with us, whilst gaining improved audio.
Ninety7 has announced that this, the first battery-powered speaker designed specifically for the Amazon Echo Dot (second generation), is now available in the UK on Amazon.
Vaux for Echo Dot
You can now cut the cord and set your Dot free.
The product was created exclusively for the Dot. You simply pop your Dot into the top of the Vaux, plug in the internal connectors and away you go.
It is available in two colors to match the Dot: Carbon and Ash. This allows you to “dress up” your Amazon product and have it seamlessly blend with your decor.
You are promised enhanced sound quality and performance from the Dot. To be honest, this shouldn’t be *that* difficult. The Dot is great for getting the news but I didn’t buy it for its musical ability.
The main feature here for me is that you can now unleash the functionality of the Dot beyond the reach of the power cable.
Thanks to its rechargeable battery, you now get a companion home-command center as portable as your cell phone.
Why not order pizza from Dominos while you’re washing up in the kitchen? Grab Vaux and listen to an audio book in the bath before heading to bed. Then, set the alarm and request your favorite music to help you sleep.
Finally, with a claimed average of 6 hours of cordless use, you should get extended periods of productivity, relaxation, discovery and entertainment.
Kevin Brennan, CEO at Ninety7 said:
Amazon’s Echo Dot is a phenomenal device. By improving its audio quality and facilitating mobility, Vaux elevates the Dot from gadget to indispensable home companion and allows for a different look than what is currently available in the Amazon family. Vaux improves communication with Alexa and, with enhanced portability, puts her within speaking distance, anywhere in the home. Vaux unleashes the potential of the Dot.”
