You'll need to install an AC-powered high speed USB charger outlet. This requires only a very modest electrical skill set but please ensure you have the power disconnected first. This plate and cradle are designed to replace the outlet cover only. What I like about this outlet cover plate is that it doesn't require a charging brick for the Echo Dot. It has a unique 90 deg USB connector. The plate and holder secure the Echo Dot and I don't worry about the Dot falling out. Very clean install. If you don't want to change out the plug, Spot Genie makes other plates that hang the Echo Dot above or below the electrical plug, but will still require the charging brick.

I have now ordered two and will order more, but I have made two consistent observations. The two plate screw holes don't quite match up with the standard holes on an electrical plug, so you'll have to jimmy jack around with alignment. They also send silver screws rather than the ones painted to match the color of the wall plate. I'd give this 4.5 stars if that were an option.

Great idea, with a couple bugs. The only two (small) gripes I have are these: The usb right angle plug is a hair too long, and sits a little crooked. In all honesty, I doubt anyone will notice it. And, it doesn't affect the installation or operation. Also, the faceplate is designed to sit on an outlet that is already mounted flush with the existing faceplate. If your existing outlet sticks out a bit from the faceplate it has now, expect the Echo Dot to also stick out a bit from the cradle it sits in. Again, not a huge issue. I actually put another matching white wall plate behind this thing to make it fit perfectly. Overall, a great idea that will work for most people without an issue.

If you own an Amazon Echo Dot and want to clear up room and clean up where you mount it, BUY this product. I purchased this looking for a way to clean up my installation in my bathroom. I was tired of the USB cables and my Echo Dot getting wet. This is by far the BEST solution I've found so far. The Spot USB Outlet Cover Plate eliminates all USB cables, integrates into your outlets, and most importantly allows you to keep both outlets free. It's a great setup and I recommend it to anyone who wants a clean mount for their Echo Dot.

Pros
- No more USB Cable
- Perfect mount
- Both outlets and second USB port available

Cons
- You need an outlet with USB ports (check compatibility before purchase)

Handy item, if a little overpriced, and worked fine for a while, but unfortunately the USB outlet I had it plugged into shorted out the first time I plugged a USB cable into the second USB port and that totally fried my Echo Dot. Definitely NOT the fault of this cover plate, but I have too much money invested in my other devices to ever trust one of those USB outlets again, which means I'll never be able use this cover plate again, either.

Found him through Reddit. Love the quality and the willingness to create new items. This one is amazing. It does make the sound better then just sitting on the counter. I have it in the kids room for alarm clock and music playing. Less permanent than the ceiling mount. Minimal effort needed to install.

Great concept and looks very slick on the wall. My main issue with it is I am very particular about asthetics and the white color and the gloss they use on this item is not consistent with the white color used in the industry. You can even see by the product images that the white of the frame does not match the outlet itself. If you can live with this, it is a solid item.

Rewiring the necessary outlet was more difficult than connecting this plate. Bought at a steep discount on the r/amazonecho subreddit.

Love this little space-saving outlet cover piece! It's a snug fit for the dot and looks great in our bathroom with it's minimalist design.

I took 1 star off because it lacks proper footing at the bottom (or outside edge) which allows for bending when you push buttons. It's an easy fix with a little bit of mounting tape (the thick, padded kind) to fill in the gap from the wall to the mounted dot.

VEry neat concept and nicely built. However the Dot took a slight downward hit and it broke the plate and holder.
