Neat freaks are delighted with Poundland's £1 bargain that hides the ugly wires from your Amazon Echo Dot.
It's always having an Alexa around but hiding her unnecessary long wires is something definitely something to consider, especially if they start getting in the way.
Users of Facebook's exclusive money-saving group - 'Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK group' - often come up with some great deals for handy little every-day items, and they've done it yet again.
On May 4, one bargain shopper from the group discovered that the 'echo dot plug-in holder' was selling at Poundland, and claimied that it was 'identical' to Amazon's £9 equivalent.
Later that day, another group member thanked that person for informing them of an absolute bargain.
"A big thank you to the person that put this on here! Now it’s up on the wall out of the way with no annoying wires!" they wrote.
"For those of you that don’t know it’s to hold your Amazon Alexa/echo dot!
"Yes it was only £1. They have it in black and white.
"The wires are wrapped around on the inside.
"For those of you who are concerned with the height of the plug socket: I live in a rented property and have no choice where plugs go, the plug socket is high on the wall for a tv (Ariel plug kinda give it away)."
The official description for the product, which is called the Vido Office Echo Wall Mount, reads: ''Designed specifically for 3rd generation Echo Dot smart speakers, this wall mount is ideal for saving you space around the home and hiding messy cables.
''There's no need for drills or screws either as the mount attaches to your Echo and is then held firmly in place when the Echo is plugged into the power socket.''
Despite there being a number of people who were looking to get their hands on one, some users warned that the quality might not be what you're looking for.
"Gets a bit loose on plug after a while so watch just don't fall out they are good though for price I just put bit double tape on it," one person said.
While others were just rather gutted for not picking up one sooner.
One person said it was 'the same' as the one they'd got from Amazon for £15 a while back, adding: "Good find.''
Another added: ''Poundland ??? No way paid 25 for mine, well done whoever gets this bargain I have 3 and they are well worth it,''
And someone else said they 'hated wires' and called the product 'brilliant'.
