Great sound and spot on to use.
Firstly i should say this does everything it promises. The echo dot fits easily and neatly into it and the build quality is excellent. The sound is good and certainly better than just the dot on its own. Overall i am happy with the unit, with the following caveats:it says it takes three hours to fully charge when you first get it. It actually took about seven hours and i thought at first it was faulty. The sound quality is not as good as a full size echo. The usb connection is underneath the unit and quite tricky to fit, though it is a very secure connection. This would not be an issue if you are leaving it permanently in place, but if you want to make use of the cordless function it is a bit of a hassle. The response from alexa does not seem to be as good with this, i seem to have to repeat myself several times. Basically i made two mistakes relating to this.
The echo dot speaker not the best but with this speaker you will get an acceptable sound and the best thing you can carry alexa wherever you want , because it has a built in battery.
A good buy, well worth the money. Only complaint is that the sound could do with more bass.

Pleased with the speakers performance but i seem to be always charging it and of course the battery goes flat just when you want it. Ideally, it needs a power lead that you can plug in for use around the house. It doesn’t do what i had hoped for but works well enough with limitations that i hadn’t expected.
I just made my amazon dot battery powered and sound 100 times better, sweeti really like the form factor of this speaker, its very similar to a sonos 1 in size and shape. I like the way the dot2 sits flush inside the speaker, very tidyi’m going to use this in the garden this summer, making the dot2 battery powered has really freed up where i can use it. This doss powerbox bluetooth speaker with amazon echo dot 2 dock will hold and power any version 2 amazon echo dot, it has a built in battery to power the dot2 or you can power it using the usb charge cable that came with your dot2 or any micro usb cable and power source. The dot2 simply drops into the hole in the top, it does not clamp or hold the dot in, it simply stays in place once the two cables are connected, these are accessible via the little rubber hatch on the side, there is a micro usb cable for power and a stereo 3. 5mm jack plug for connecting to the dot2 aux output socket. Underneath the speaker are a micro usb and aux input socket, and the cables for both are also supplied, usb to micro usb and stereo jack to stereo jack 3. 5mmthe manufacturers state 8 hours battery life per charge from its built in 2,200mah battery, i have used mine for over 6 hours so far, streaming an internet radio station, and it is just now starting to sound the low battery audible warning sound so i guess it will need charging soon, still this is plenty of time for most people on a day out, an external usb battery pack will charge and power it up if it needs a boost. I can also connect the speaker to my phone via bluetoth using a simple voice command which is cool. The verdict – the speaker outputs clear sound with plenty of high and mid frequencies, it lacks somewhat in the bass end but that is to be expected with a speaker of this size, even my way more expensive sonos 1 speakers have a problem with low frequencies. Battery life is ok and it holds the dot2 in place perfectly so it looks like one device instead of two.
Much better than echodot alone obviously not meant to be high end speaker but still good quality for the money.
My sister in law is very happy with the sound and quality of this speaker. Was simple enough to set up and works well with her alexa. I therefore recommend this item and give it 5 stars.
Ok product does what it says. Its well made and easy set up. It looks good and makes my little echo dot sound so much better. If i had to be picky it could do with a little more bass. But that aside i would buy another. Great little product , nicely priced , just a little more bass required :).
Turns our garden echo dot into a boom-box, and has great battery life.
Better than the vaux speaker for bass, treble not as good, but i liked the light being on the front not back as the vaux speaker and 8 hours run time, all in all it’s a better speaker but only just.
