Recommended wall mount for Echo Dot v3
« on: November 16, 2018, 04:07:05 am »
Hi all,
Any recommended wall mount for the Echo Dot v3 ?
(so that it's vertical I mean, such as the Dottie for my Echo Dot v2)
thx

Something like this?

I had seen that one indeed.
They don't show how it looks once plugged though  :-\
And I was thinking more of something holding thanks to the power outlet (like the Dottie) instead of the sticky pads which I don't trust too much...

I went with that one (there was not much choice for 3rd gen anyway on the French site)

The whole thing looks fine but it's pretty massive compared to the Echo Dot 2 + wall mount.
I have mine hanging up (ie Echo Dot is above the socket)
Due to the weight of the Dot 3 and probably the shape of the socket, the whole installation slightly tilts forwards.
I had to insert a discrete tiny piece of cardboard below the base to set the mount perfectly vertical.
You might not face this issue if you plug it with the Echo Dot below the socket.
Your mileage may vary depending on the shape of you socket too.

there are pictures that shows it on the wall.  also look like there are a couple of screw holes so you don't have to use the sticky pads except to hold it in place till you screw it on. 

it addition there are many holders for the third generation dot on amazon that shows it below the outlet but I did not see any over.   if you are good with a screwdriver, you can always turn the outlet upside down so the dot will be above.

Clear the kitchen countertop for instance.
