For the tech-accessorizer

It’s t he first battery-powered speaker created specifically for the Amazon Echo Dot that allows users to cut the cord and ‘set their Dot free’. It also comes in two colors, Carbon and Ash, to visually spruce up your Dot for deeper accessorizing.

I have to admit, these ‘smart’ LED bulbs are a game changer, especially with home devices to control them (if not, the apps are handy, too). Since TP-Link has the discount, it definitely bumps them up a bit for consideration.
