Vaux speaker for Amazon Echo Dot review

Speaker can turn your Echo Dot into something more powerful


The Echo Dot device from Amazon has undoubtedly been a runaway success for the company, but the speaker it comes with is a bit underpowered.

In comes Vaux, It claimed to be first battery-powered speaker designed specifically for the Amazon Echo Dot (second generation).

The product was created exclusively for the Dot and with its easy plug-and-play set-up, users simply pop their Dot into the top of the Vaux, plug in the internal connectors and, once charged, don’t have to worry about being near an electrical socket. Tunes can play through a more powerful speaker from anywhere in the house and Alexa can easily move from room to room.  Vaux comes in two colors to match the Dot, Carbon and Ash, enabling consumers to “dress up” their Amazon product and have it seamlessly blend in with their home environment – turning a tech product into a beautiful home accessory.

Audio quality

It features a speaker that enriches the audio quality of the Amazon Echo Dot. Whether listening to music or an audio book, or asking Alexa questions, VAUX enhances the sound quality and performance of the Dot. Additionally, users can connect their mobile devices or tablets via a 3.5mm jack and instantly use VAUX to upgrade their Dot to a portable sound system.

It comes with a rechargeable battery and is fast to set up and ease of use. The Amazon Echo Dot drops in and nests securely into the top of VAUX. It boasts Two active 52mm drivers and one 90mm x 50mm passive radiator.

It also has a Rechargeable 5000 mAh Lithium-ion battery for 6 hours of battery life between micro-USB charges.

Overall, there is a lot to like about this speaker. It is available at Amazon and Currys (coming soon to QVC and Argos) for £49.99.
