New Accessory Makes Amazon Echo Portable

The award-winning Echo has successfully integrated smart home and digital assistant capabilities with high-performance audio, but until now has lacked the flexibility that comes with having a built-in battery.

SEATTLE, May 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Mission Cables announces the release of Battery Base™ for Amazon Echo. The award-winning Echo has successfully integrated smart home and digital assistant capabilities with high-performance audio, but until now has lacked the flexibility that comes with having a built-in battery. Battery Base, which seamlessly adds portability to Echo, unleashes a wide range of new applications for the best-selling device. For the first time, customers can use Echo anywhere within range of a WiFi router or a Bluetooth-enabled phone.


Easy to set up, Echo conveniently slips into Battery Base and offers up to six hours of audio playback. The patent-pending product is powered by the Amazon Echo adapter, which users unplug when ready to make Echo portable. Plus, Echo works continuously during transitions between being powered by the power adapter and Battery Base.

Brian Wengreen, President of Mission Cables, states, "Battery Base opens up a whole new set of use scenarios for Echo. Whether it is using Echo in the garage or garden, at the pool or on the patio, we think Echo enthusiasts will appreciate the ability to untether Echo from the wall and take it anywhere."

Battery Base is available for $49.99 at Amazon.com.
