Brilliant item, echo fits in well. So great to be able to carry around the house and garden.
I’m loving my echo show but the biggest drawback is that it needs to be charged up via a specific lead so not as portable becsuse it needs to be close to a power socket. I was looking for a portable kind of power bank for it when i came across this battery base by smatree. The battery base arrives in two parts consisting of the base and the carry handle. It was really easy to pop my echo show onto the base. It sits into the alcove neatly and perfectly and is protected from sliding out by the raised edges. There are rubberised pads underneath the base to enable it to grip the surface of wherever you might place it. The handle has protective rubber inserts on the inside to prevent any damage to the device and slots into each side of the power base. It locks firmly into place and can only be unlocked by pressing the release button on the side. Having said that i would still exercise caution when carrying it around. All you need to do to start this off is plug the power cable on the bottom back of the base into your echo show.
It met all requirements and more. Came with handles to move around with easily.
Perfect for moving from room to room.
Well works good but there is no way you get 8 hours from one charge.
Love it does the job get one.
- Great concept almost perfectly executed – overall, really useful item
- Smatree Battery Base
- Well done again Smatree a great Battery Base
This stand does basically what it says on the tin. It allows you to leave your echo show plugged in all the time but, when you want to use the show around the house (or when away on long weekends if you pair it with a 3g / 4g mifi), you just unplug it and go – perfectthe reason i say ‘almost perfectly executed’ is because they have copied the power mechanism of the echo show itself. With the ‘show’, the base premise is that you’ll put it onto a table and it will stay there permanently. The designers therefore made the mains connector cable recessed into the body of the unit to allow it to present a smooth profile at the back, and they have achieved that aim. The designers of this battery pack therefore copied that mechanism, and the only way to ‘unplug and go’ is to grip the cord itself and pull it, since the plug is recessed into the body. That’s okay for a permanent fixture, but raises major red flags over the longevity of the mains cable when the mechanism is used for a device that’s meant to be regularly plugged and unplugged, and that becomes a big deal when you realise that amazon don’t even list a replacement mains power supply unit (psu) for the echo show on their sitehaving said that, i compared voltages / currents for my echo v1 psu and the echo show psu that i got when i bought the show, and they seem identical (15 volt, 1. 4 amp), so that psu should work even though amazon doesn’t say it does, so it may be that tearing the cord out of the plug will only cost you £18. Overall, the battery base is a really useful item, and i’ll keep it and use it, it’s just a shame that the designers didn’t put 5 minutes extra thought into the mains input issue.
I just love my amazon echo show smatree battery base it makes my echo truly portable, this is my second smatree echo battery base as i bought one before for my echo to make that portable. This base was easy to install and i’ve taken a photo of the front and rear of it so you can see where the wiring is etc. The base itself is very sturdy. I haven’t tested how long this can go without having to put the power lead back in, as i use it for playing music whilst i’m in my lay-z-spa or sunbathing, in the second picture if you can see it or not you have a lights indicating how much power is left before having to put the power cord in. You can also turn the base on and off. All in all i well recommend the smatree bases for any of the echo devices.
Excellent product gives the echo show portability.
This is how the echo show should have been made right from the start. It is a fantastic addition to your device and makes it totally portable (within your wifi range) around your house. Just plug it in and charge it up, ready to go. The good thing is that you leave it on charge and it’s ready when you want to go into the garden or shed or greenhouse, whatever. Buy one, you won’t be disappointed, and if you have the echo 2nd gen, buy the unit by smatree for that as well, i have.
Lovely for taking your echo to different rooms.
