Easily plug in your Dot device to any socket without having to trail the power wire from socket to location. have ordered one myself to see if it works fine but looks like it will do the job if I need to move it around etc.

..trail the power wire from socket to location...And how many locations, …..trail the power wire from socket to location...And how many locations, eg on the coffee table, on the nightstand, have a wall socket right there to use?And apart from the kitchen, most wall sockets are at floor level, so how useful is this?I don't have many wall sockets out in plain sight, they are behind the tv/sideboard/chair/lamp, so microphone effiency might be a bit limited.



Sort your house out then.

Compatible with dots before November 2017?

think is should say after Nov 2017 ?
This is a good deal as the item is €12.99 on Amazon Germany where youd expect it to be cheaper as its made there.
Looking at the picture the key is does your powersupply fit in the gap at the back of the holder.

So how many are you buying then?
The other solution is to use the usb supply if you have one built into your wall socket and use 3M tape to stick the Echo above it. If you havent already upgraded your wall sockets ,they are cheaper than this anyway.
Interesting idea, not sure if the reality will be as good though
Really cool product

It looks like it's only designed to use the Amazon 2nd gen's power supply.
Good idea. £10 though, I think I'll pass.

Yep, this was designed to work with the first version of the Echo Dot gen 2 power supply with the flare at the base but the current gen 2s, like the one I got in Black Friday week, have have a different power supply that doesn't have that flare.

None, If I ever want to set the house on fire I'll buy a box of matches. That thing will probably take about a fortnight to burst into flames
I know you're just baiting mcek for his narrowmindedness but this thing doesn't have any electronics in it so that's unlikely

Well, a bit of that, but it'll make the power-supply run warmer. How much warmer, I've no idea.

Actually I did just have an idea. I bet the Echo Dot does have a temperature sensor somewhere, on the board or on a chip I couldn't say.
I wonder if anyone has found a way to get the device to report its temperature. That could be a useful thing

Like your thinking
I like it. Ordered. Heat!
Would look better with the cable on the bottom

Easy, mount the Dot just under your Hive thermostat and say "Alexa, ask Hive the temperature of my house".

*Warning, the rest of your house may end up a little colder than you intended!

And why would you assume that this "thing" will probably burst into flames? Let me remind you that 1st gen Echo Dot consumes small amount of power therefore amount of heat it generates is also fairly small.

And let me remind you that 1st Gen never sold in the UK, so you've probably never been close enough to tell if it gets warm or not.

Plus, guessing Amazon had decent psu's built, not like the average Chinese fire cracker you get with stuff

Yes, I am sure it will set itself on fire even before you plug it in. Please, be realistic.
Got mine this morning.... it's mint, perfect for the job, however it appears the problem lies with the PSU, the newer dots come with a revised psu which is slightly bigger (black case/white bottom hence, won't fit!) I've got 2 dots, the older one had the small psu (all black) and it worked a treat...
