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

Amazon Echo leads smart speaker market with 76% share

Google set to introduce their second smart speaker before Microsoft releases their first

Since the inception of smart speakers, users have been waiting for more features to debut on them.

Google released its Google Home device in November. At the IFA 2017, we witnessed the first portable smart speaker with Google Assistant - Mobvoi TicHome Mini.

Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) published a new report today from its latest "home automation devices" study that shows Amazon and its Echo products with a 76 percent USA market share, compared to 24 percent for Google and its Google Home device.

WWE PPVs John Cena Main-Evented (But Shouldn't Have)
While the title wasn't defended at Summer Slam, No Mercy will see the Miz put it on the line against Jordan. Tonight's WWE RAW from San Jose is scheduled to feature a Six Pack Challenge, according to PWInsider.

Attachable batteries are not new for smart speakers though; Amazon Echo Dot has got the same product "Vaux" earlier this year from Ninety7.

Now, Ninety7 aims to bestow the same portable capabilities to the Google Home.

The Loft cleverly takes advantage of Google Home's detachable bases. It adds a battery to the speaker setup with 4 LEDs to display battery levels. The Dox looks more compact than the Vaux, and the Vaux only offered six hours of battery.

FPL plans to have power to all customers by Wednesday unless there is an unusual circumstance that is preventing them. As of Tuesday afternoon, 14,130 customers in Miami-Dade and 2,890 customers in Broward were without power.

Ninety7 now has the LOFT and DOX as portable battery bases for two of the most popular smart speakers today. You can now roam around your house with Google Home or any other place with Wi-Fi in range. Grab a LOFT for $39.95 (regular RRP is $49.95), while the DOX can be yours for $29.94 (regular RRP is $39.95).

If you've ever wished to carry the Amazon Echo Dot or Google Home around with you, then a battery pack from Ninety7 could be the right up your street. With LOFT, Google Home can easily be used as a portable Bluetooth speaker. Both need to be plugged in, however, so you typically need multiple units if you want to talk to your digital assistant from anywhere in a large home.
