The Prime Day 2020 deals are coming in waves right now, and it should come as no surprise that some of the best deals are on Amazon's own devices. We just came across this crazy good offer on the Echo Flex that can put Alexa in those hard-to-reach spots around the house for just $10.
Can you believe that price? That is the cheapest you're ever going to see for an Alexa-enabled device or smart speaker! I was among the first to purchase an Echo Flex late last year when they came out, and you can be sure I'll be adding a couple more if this deal holds.
A real smart plug
The Amazon Echo Flex is an Alexa speaker that can plug into any standard outlet and is perfect for transitional or workspaces like utility rooms, hallways, bathrooms, or garages.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again, I believe that the Echo Flex is low-key one of the most important Alexa-enabled devices in Amazon's extensive product lineup. It can go places where most Echo speakers cannot, and it extends the range of Alexa's usefulness over your home. I can't tell you how many times I've wanted to listen to a podcast while folding laundry or turn on lights while walking down a dark hallway. I've definitely used the Echo Flex quite a bit while in the garage, and I'm not even that handy!
This little smart speaker can go anywhere you have a standard wall outlet, but it's not a traditional smart-plug, per se. It does take up one of the available outlets, that's true, but there is a USB port at the bottom that you can use to charge your cell phone or other small devices. You can also plug in various accessories to that port to make the Echo Flex even more useful.
For instance, there is a smart motion sensor that you can use to help trigger automations and actions like turning on lights, and there is a night light to illuminate dark spaces. You can even add a clock module to see the time, or a speaker additon to enhance the sound from this tiny built-in speaker.
If you buy one Echo smart speaker during Prime Day, I encourage you to get the Echo Flex. It may not sound the best or look the prettiest, but I bet you will get more use out of it than any other Alexa speaker!
