"Spot" on clean installation
on January 19, 2018
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.
