This $6 adapter connects a Fire Stick directly to your TV — no messy cords needed

What is it?

Love your Fire TV Stick, but hate the mess of cables you need to watch your favorite shows? Well, hate no more. The Fire-Cable Plus Wireless Adapter is designed to minimize your cable chaos and provide all the extra juice your Fire TV Stick needs — straight from the TV itself.

This adapter connects your Fire TV Stick directly to your TV through its onboard USB slot, providing juice without the need for a secondary power cable.

Why is it a good deal?

This little problem solver is already inexpensive, but while the number of five-star reviews keep going up, the price keeps going down! At $6, down from $15 (that's 60% off!), this is the lowest price we've seen for it!

Why do I need this?

People love the Fire TV Stick, and for good reason. What's not to like? It can control your TV, smart home and even let you stream video games through Amazon Luna. The only downside is that higher-end Fire Sticks like the 4K or 4K Max require external power. That means another cable you have to comb through the rat's nest of cords behind your TV.

There's not a lot to this accessory, and that's the beauty of it. It's a low-effort, no-frills design that does exactly what it's intended to. If you snagged a Fire TV Stick for yourself during one of Amazon's blowout sales, this is a great way to give it an extra bit of juice while keeping the back of your TV nice and tidy.

If you have a Roku, good news: it also works for that, as well as for Chromecast devices. Anything that has a microUSB connection can take advantage of this adapter. The company even claims this can save you power, since it powers off your Fire Stick when you turn off the TV. It's practically foolproof, too; even the most non-tech-savvy user can figure out how to plug it in and operate it.

What reviewers say

This device is universally compatible across a wide range of streaming devices. It's a win-win; after all, who doesn't want more streamlined cable management behind their TV? The 12,000+ perfect reviews speak for themselves: "This is a FANTASTIC solution to charging your Fire Stick without having to take up another outlet or have a bunch of unsightly cords." one user said.

Another shopper echoed that sentiment: "I would often get upset with the kids for unplugging the cord for the Fire TV Stick to charge a phone or plug in some part of a game system, then I found this. It has kept the peace in my home since it releases the plugs and allows a continuous charge for the Fire Stick straight from the TV (as it should be)! I'd love for Amazon to keep the plug and add this cord in for new Fire Sticks because it is SO easy to use and gives another option for power. Device absolutely works as expected and I will be buying this again for the other TVs."

"A must-have with your fire stick," wrote another rave reviewer. "I love not having the tangles of cords or anything hanging out from the TV. I am able to tuck away the cables, which was great."
