I am basing my 5 star review on this being exactly what I needed it to do. Be a portable battery for me to take Alexa outside and listen to my music and ask Alexa questions. I had bought another base type but it did not secure the echo could of easily broke, by sliding off the base. This comes with a ring to go around the base of the echo and locks it in place. The ring did not sit flush in the base but it does the job of what I needed it to do, which was secure it in the base and not let it fall of the base. I even turned it upside down and shook it and still no budging out of the base, which is again what I was looking for (pic showing the turn over). The battery life is great, but I haven’t tested it to the whole 6-8 hrs, it has been 2-3 and the lights in the front was still lit up at 3. This thing is great and would recommend it to anyone looking for a portable speaker and if your wifi extends out to be able to use Alexa as you do in the house. I did not see any loss in volumeor base since it is not plugged directly in a outlet.
Works great, battery lasts long time. I had it on outside for 13 hours one day and it was showing power was 1/2 used. Very happy with product.
Used it for Echo 2nd generation. Was holding charge about 3 hours for beginning. Two months later was able to hold around an hour. 4 months later turns off as only I unplug it. Two stars for temporary solution))))UPDATE: After contacted the seller they agreed to send me another battery. Seller is very responsive and keeps me updated on delivery details. So on the part of customer service seller is great! That's why rating changed from 1 out of 5 to 4.UPDATE 2: The new battery base arrived earlier than expected. Product works great! Left the speaker with fully charged battery playing for overnight. It was still playing when I woke up! So far the battery holding the charge for over 8 hours.
This device does exactly what is says. However I had to read other reviews to know what plastic piece, there are 2 for different models of echo, to use. There we're not instuctions included.
Doesn't impede sound quality and the battery last a very long time. It also charges rather quickly. Its good to move around the house and bring my Echo with me. The base fits snuggly (use the proper band that comes with it). I can literally hold my Echo up side down and it does not fall out.
I like the fact that I can take my echo outside without having cords. Have had this unit for two months and I’ve had no issues with it. Charge life seems to be pretty decent. I’ve played 2+ hours without any skips or dead time.
Works great! I always wanted Alexa to be portable. I just keep it on all the time. My only criticism is that the plastic ring that fits the device on the Echo is clear not white. This was confusing at first because the ring looked like part of the packing. When I couldn’t get the battery to stay on I tried the clear ring and it worked. Instructions should be changed to clear ring not white.
Does EXACTLY what its designed for. Makes the echo very user friendly. Take it with you. Solid design. Only flaw it seems the echo power cord falls out easily. But, if its charged thats not a problem. Lol
