Amazon is currently discounting the Ninety7 Battery Base for the Google Home, bringing the price down to $29.95 from the original price of $49.95. This makes it a really good time to pick up a battery base for the Google Home, especially if you would rather have a portable Google Assistant speaker, rather than one that needs to remain plugged in all-day.
This Battery Base from Ninety7 is a good option for those that want to have a portable Google Home, seeing as the speaker does need to be plugged in at all-times. This is due to the fact that it doesn't have a battery built-in, and because it is always listening for your commands. With this Battery Base, the Google Home does get a bit taller, but it also gives you around eight hours of battery life away from the wall outlet. There is a button towards the bottom that will be used to turn on the Battery Base so it can start charging, and not be in use when the Google Home is plugged in. It gives the Google Home a pretty nice look, and it can be taken anywhere. But it's important to remember that this does not make the Google Home a waterproof speaker, so don't take it to the pool or to the shower.
