Amazon keeps expanding its Alexa smart device lineup further and further. After all this time, however, the Echo Dot is still the best Alexa device Amazon makes. It’s a great affordable way to put Alexa in any room of your house. It’s also so popular that there are tons of great accessories for the Echo Dot. So, for example, if you want to make your Echo Dot portable you can just pick up a VAUX Cordless Home Speaker + Portable Battery for Amazon Echo Dot (which happens to be on sale for just $39 right now). Or if you want to install Dots flush in your walls or ceiling, you can grab a Mount Genie. Amazon’s mini Alexa speaker is awesome and versatile, and it’s on sale for Memorial Day 2018.
