Ever wish you could free your
Amazon Echo Dot
from the confines of its power cord? Maybe take it with you to the backyard or even the beach? You can, with a battery-powered speaker dock (and, of course, a Wi-Fi hotspot provided by your phone).
The Dot (second-gen only) drops snugly into the top of the speaker, which then becomes the Dot's power source. You can easily move the setup to another room in the house or even take it out with you. Mokcao doesn't specify how much play time you'll get from the 5,000 mAh battery, but it does allow you to recharge your phone via the rear USB port.
So, yeah, it's a portable Echo Dot speaker and a mobile charger. Not bad for $24, especially considering that many similar products sell for $50 and higher.
