LOFT is a $49.95 portable battery base for the Google Home

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

Then there's the Loft, which will sell for $49.95 (but is also on sale for $10 off) and adds a battery pack to the Google Home so that it doesn't need to be plugged into a wall outlet. Google Home being the first popular one, users have always portability on the device.

The new Ninety7 DOX is a portable battery for the 2nd Generation Amazon Echo Dot, created to provide rechargeable, cord-free mobility at home or on-the-go.

Now, Ninety7 aims to bestow the same portable capabilities to the Google Home. For those wondering how LOFT attaches to the Google Home, it attaches to the magnetic base system on the smart speaker. Say their respective wake words, and they'll act as music streamers, smart home controllers or personal assistants. It has 4 LEDs on the front to show how much battery is still left and a premium metal perforated sleeve that should keep the same look you're used to with Google Home without hindering the sound's quality. It can offer up to 8 hours of usage on a single charge.

While Google is working on the next version of Google Home, which will be smaller than the first version, it is good to see third-party manufacturers coming up with nifty accessories for the smart speaker.

LOFT for the Google Home provides a battery pack that let's you unplug and take Google anywhere you choose. As with the VAUX, Amazon's smaller smart speaker drops into a nook on the top, with cables plugging in at the back. Snap off your Google Home base, and the metallic Loft snaps in its place. Shipping is expected to start in early October so don't delay to bag a bargain. Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
