Ninety7, the technology lifestyle company behind top-selling VAUX, the first battery-powered speaker designed for the Amazon Echo Dot, today announced that SKY TOTE, a portable battery base for the Amazon Echo (2nd Gen) is now shipping and available on Ninety7.com and Amazon.
SKY TOTE provides cordless freedom, letting you unplug and take Alexa anywhere within WIFI range. Following three successful launches in the company’s first year, SKY TOTE is the latest of several smart assistant accessory products Ninety7 plans to release this year for both Amazon Echo and Google Home. The SKY TOTE retails for $59.95.
SKY TOTE was designed to seamlessly integrate with the Amazon Echo 2. Its convenient carry handle lets the user enjoy the full-size, robust smart speaker with ease. Featuring a powerful, lithium-ion rechargeable battery, allowing up to eight hours of unplugged use and four LED lights on the front, it’s easy to gauge the remaining battery life of the battery base.
Installation is simple and cable free—just remove Amazon Echo 2’s original factory sleeve and the rubber nub at the base to expose Echo 2’s power pins (Ninety7 includes a tool for easy removal). Then simply insert the Echo 2 into SKY TOTE’s battery sleeve and effortlessly connect for cord-free mobility.
Now that voice assistants have been in the marketplace for a while, consumers are looking to elevate their experience, and the need for portability is a highly desired attribute. We are looking forward to expanding Ninety7’s product line as we head into Prime Day and the upcoming holiday season, and SKY TOTE is the perfect product to jumpstart us into this next chapter of our company.
