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

Echo Show

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?

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. Google Home being the first popular one, users have always portability on the device.

Now, Ninety7 aims to bestow the same portable capabilities to the Google Home. It weighs 400g (14.1 ounces) and attaches magnetically to the Google Home so it should technically be a seamless transition from your current base. It adds a battery to the speaker setup with 4 LEDs to display battery levels.




Like the Dox, the Loft makes the Google Home appreciably bigger. It can offer up to 8 hours of usage on a single charge.

Similar to the Amazon Echo Dot, Google Home Mini will be a smaller version of the company's Home smart speaker.

Large households typically require multiple Google Home units if their owners want to talk to the Assistant from every room in their home, but with LOFT owners won't have to spend more cash on multiple speakers. 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). Snap off your Google Home base, and the metallic Loft snaps in its place. As with the VAUX, Amazon's smaller smart speaker drops into a nook on the top, with cables plugging in at the back. Shipping is expected to start in early October so don't delay to bag a bargain. If yes, then will you be interested in buying LOFT for it?
