Top critical review
Almost got it right
Reviewed in the United States on June 17, 2021
For an item that seems /o imply it was designed specifically for Echo ( it's called EchoGear) it seems to be a near miss when it comes to using with an Echo made in the last few years.
The ideal plug spot for any recent Echo with the square 15w power cube would be the top set of plugs, with the cord facing up. This configuration would hide almost every inch of cord and provide clearance to easily access the lower receptacle, as well as easy access to "Test" and "Reset" buttons on most GFCI outlets. Sadly the shelf is a couple millimeters too low, and the plug simply will not fit in that configuration for me with the GFCI plug I have. Your plug might be different and have enough clearance but mine just misses, even with the cord fed all the way up ( my picture makes it look like cord is in the way but trust me, it doesn't fit even when you arent trying to snap a picture with one hand).
I get different manufacturers plugs will be slightly different but it seems like such a miniscule adjustment on 1/8" could have made this perfect for any outlet using an Echo.
And just to be clear, i'm not saying it won't work with an Echo that uses the square plug, it definitely does. You just need to use the lower outlet or use the top with cord facing down. The issue is I can't plug the block into the ideal spot which would be top putlet with cord facing up. Depending on the plug you have you might not have this issue but i think the slightest design change could have insured no one had this issue ....
See my pictures. I was able to trim it up with my Dremel so i could get the plug in the top with cord up but when the product is called EchoGear ot should be good out of the box.
The difference between having the plug up top with cord up is so much cleaner than any other way and sonce it was designed for Echo they really should have thought of this and designed accordingly. If this was GoogleGear having to modify it for the Echo would be expected, but you are calling this EchoGear. Just saying...
