From BGR:
Last week we told you about the MegaBoot, an awesome accessory that transforms the Amazon Echo into a portable Alexa speaker. The MegaBoot provides a whopping 18 hours of battery life, which is clearly impressive. It’s priced a bit steep at $90 though, and people have asked us if we know of a more affordable option. Well, the answer is we do. Check out the Smatree Portable Battery Base for Echo, which is about half the price of the MegaBoot and offers 6 continuous hours of playback per charge.

The Smatree AE9000 is with 5V/2A output for your cell phone or tablet, so that you can enjoy your music and charge your phone at the same time. It’s also designed with two different charging ports, allowing you to charge it with original AC adapter, power banks or laptops at your convenience.
