The Amazon Echo Dot is the most affordable Alexa-enabled smart speaker Amazon makes. At $50, it’s a great value for anyone looking for easy access to Alexa without the need to stream music — and right now it’s on sale for $45! You can stream tunes to the Dot, of course, but the sound quality isn’t very good at all. Then there’s the VAUX Cordless Home Speaker + Portable Battery, a $50 accessory that adds portability and upgraded sound quality to the Dot.

If you want to save even more money on the Echo Dot than you will in Amazon’s back to school sale, you can buy one bundled together with the VAUX portable battery speaker for $89.99, so you’re basically slashing $10 off the price of the Dot.

Here are the highlights from Amazon’s product page:

  • This bundle includes the Echo Dot (2nd Generation) and Vaux Speaker for Echo Dot (Black/Carbon) so you can control your speaker with your voice
  • Connect Echo Dot to the Vaux speaker to play music from Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, and TuneIn
  • Enjoy up to 6 hours of portable run time with our rechargeable lithium ion battery.
  • Echo Dot (2nd Generation) is a hands-free, voice-controlled device that uses Alexa to play music, control smart home devices, make calls, send and receive messages, provide information, read the news, set alarms, read audiobooks from Audible, and more
  • Introducing Alexa calling and messaging, a new way to be together with family and friends. Just ask Alexa to call or message anyone with an Echo, Echo Dot, or the Alexa App.
  • Vaux has dual 52mm Drivers and a passive radiator for impressive sound and bass
  • Vaux is compatible with 2nd Generation Dot
