Pioneer has introduced the Rayz Rally, the first Lightning-powered portable speaker that plays music or turns your iPhone into a conference speakerphone
Rally is the world’s first Lightning-powered plug-and-play speaker. Unlike other portable speakers, Rally has no battery. It is powered by your iPhone.
Avnera’s LightX platform enables Rally to minimise the power used from the iPhone.
Plug Rally into the Lightning port, initiate calls from your device and music or your call is automatically transferred to Rally’s speaker.
Rally is also the first Lightning powered speaker enable talk/music and charge capability. Plug a standard Lightning cable into the Lightning port of Rally and enable pass-through charging for your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
Rally will optimise the audio for phone calls or music playback. Rally’s single button will mute/unmute calls or play/pause music depending on what you are doing. The iOS app also supports automatic software updates.
Price is £109 and is available in three finishes Ice White (only sold via Pioneer sales channels), Onyx Black (sold via Pioneer sales channels and also available at Apple stores/Apple.com) & Space Grey (exclusively available via Apple stores/Apple.com).
