Great price for the bigger home, I have one bought off Amazon US and it's very handy to take mine to the backyard when doing garden work and relaxing in the evening with BBQ.

For the old mini yes as it's micro usb. New mini is not usb.

Not for the full size, unless your power bank has the right plug.

Exactly my use case. Really like it. Picked up another for my other Google home.

For Home mini (not Nest mini), yes. Might as well instead of using this base with only 5000mAh.

These still need to be hooked up to a wireless network right? Can't bring it to the beach? Or does GHM work on bluetooth or connected directly to a phone's wifi?

Interesting! This would be good if you're ever concerned about a power failure at night, and still need the alarm to wake you up. I had no idea they even sold these. Thx
Why can't we all just get along?

How long can you play music for with this battery say at medium volume? (Assuming wifi is connected )

Just curious why not use your phone for alarm?

I don't think alarm works without internet connectivity. Presumably, in case of power failure your wifi would be off. I'm basing my hypothesis on the time my GH mini lost connection to wifi and then the alarm didn't go off.
Be a nice person and enjoy life

The power failure would need to persist through the wake up time for it not to wake you, but these would help in the rare case. I usually set my phone as backup for critical alarms.

I read it still plays default alarm tone even if your wifi is out.

You need the wifi to setup the Bluetooth connection but once you do that you are good to go. I bring it to work with me often.

Isn't it literally cheaper to buy a separate alarm clock than this stand for your google home?
