Regular readers are now intimately familiar with the Insignia Voice alarm clock that regular pops up here for $25. Guess what? Its portable cousin is on sale for the same price: Best Buy has the Insignia Voice Portable Speaker with Google Assistant for $25 shipped. Regular price: $150! 

At first blush, it's a fairly average-looking alarm clock. But smarts lurk beneath. It's also a Google Assistant-powered smart speaker. And it has a rechargeable battery, one that's good for up to 5 hours.
