Scosche introduced at CES this week a small car charger that brings Alexa voice operation to the car.
The BTFREQ charger plugs into the 12 volt cigarette lighter and then serves as a small Echo-like device. It connects via Bluetooth or an Aux-in cable to access Alexa. Users can then ask to play music, hear the news, check weather and more. Once paired with a smartphone, the BTFREQ also works with Apple’s Siri and Google Voice.
The Scosche BTFREQ is also a dual-port fast charger for two devices at once. It charges up to three times faster than a regular charger and delivers the fastest safest charge for each device (USB-C 18 watt/USB-A 12W/USB-C 18W with Power Delivery), says Scosche. It also supports Apple and Samsung Fast Charge.
The device won a 2019 CES Innovations Award.
It will be available in the fall of 2019 and will be on display during CES in the Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall 3, Booth #31106
