I’ve been looking for a good Echo Dot Wall Mount for my new 3rd Gen devices. I’ve bought some for my 2nd Gen devices and been disappointed with how the power adapter is located/installed leaving me with a less than secure device hanging from the socket.
These Echo Dot Wall Mounts via Amazon pretty much solve all of my previous issues. The holders came nicely packaged and were individually wrapped in the 2 pack box that I received. The holders have cable management on the rear so that you can wrap up the cord on the power adapter around the back to hide all of the wires. The box has step by step instructions on how to thread the power cable through the cable management – nice touch. It does require some work to bundle up the wires completely.
It is a shame that the 3rd Gen Dot does not use the same Micro USB power block where you can substitute the cord for a shorter one but that is a fault of the 3rd Gen Dot and not this mounting solution.
Once you have figured out how to wind up the cables in the rear you simply slot the power supply into the top and you are good to go. The power supply slides in snuggly which is important as it keeps the whole holder and device securely in the wall. Other mounts I have used for Gen 2 models have wobbled and not been a good fit.
The mount looks great hanging from the socket, all wires hid – a great design and value product for the Gen 3. The Echo device is very secure both in the mount and the wall socket. I can mount this up or down with confidence.
I’ll be buying more as I upgrade my Gen 2 devices.
【Compatibility】Designed for Dot 3nd Gen ONLY,(Device is not included)not compatible with Dot 2nd Generation 【Perfect Cord Arrangement】Built-in cable storage, allows you to wrap the messy cables at the backside, which frees up counter space and provides a much cleaner look 【Easy & safe installation】You can install the speaker on the wall in seconds. No drilling in your walls or screwing required!, Great for kitchens, study, living room, bathrooms and bedrooms
