Amazon's ecosystem of Echo devices (or Echosystem) has helped turn average homes into modern smart homes. We love how convenient Alexa makes it to control devices, listen to music, check the news, find shows, and do so many other things. Enhance your Echo experience further with one of the many useful accessories available for the varying Alexa units. We begin our list with accessories that work with multiple Echo devices and then transition into products for specific Echo devices after that. Let's get to it.
- Wireless charge: Caramote Portable Battery Base
- Ding Ding: Echo Buttons (2-Pack)
- "Alexa, do you copy?": Alexa Voice Remote for Echo

- Boom!: Echo Sub
- Mount up!: HumanCentric Wall Mount for Echo (3rd Gen) and Echo Plus (2nd Gen)

This portable battery base allows you to use your Echo (3rd Gen) or Echo Plus (2st Gen) wirelessly for 6-9 hours. It's great for playing music at parties or events where you don't have access to outlets. On the back, you'll find a USB port, DC input port, DC output cable, and LED battery life indicators.
If you'd prefer to have more physical control of your Echo device from a distance, you'll like this remote. You'll find a microphone, play, pause, previous, next, and volume buttons to make your Echo easier to use. It works with all generations of the Echo, Echo Dot, Echo Plus, Echo Studio, Echo Show, and Echo Spot. Just keep in mind it can only work with one Echo device at a time.
Pitched as an interactive nightlight for kids, the Amazon Echo Glow can add a pop of color to any space. Set colorful timers or sync to the music on your Echo for a homemade dance party!
Replace your boring old basic clock with this sophisticated design by Citizen. Of course you can use it to keep the time, but you can also see the status of your Alexa timers when paired with your Echo device.
One of the best things about Echo devices is that you can access music from Spotify, Pandora, Amazon Music, or a number of other streaming services. This particular subwoofer is designed specifically for use with an Echo (2nd or 3rd Gen), Echo Plus (2nd Gen), or Echo Studio. It looks beautiful in your home since it's designed to match the look of other Echo devices.
Take advantage of the Echo (3rd Gen) or Echo Plus (2nd Gen)'s superior sound quality by mounting it on a wall in your home. Don't worry, your expensive Alexa device is secured to the mount via a screw so it won't fall off and break. Additionally, the mount itself secures to the wall with the help of two screws.
Spice up your 2nd Gen Echo speaker with a unique covering. There are six colors to choose from to help your Alexa device better match your home decor. One of the skins is even Christmas themed and would be a great gift. The shells range from fabric covers to wood veneer finishes.
Attach your Echo (2nd Gen) to the wall like you would a wall lamp. The holder is just large enough for the Echo and keeps it from falling over. You'll also receive two drywall screws and anchors to help with the mounting process. Makes sure you find a stable stud before installing it.
This outlet mount works with every Echo Dot made to date. The smart design saves you space in your home and reduces the length of the Echo Dot's cables on your wall to keep your rooms looking tidy. Unless Amazon drastically changes the look of the Dot, it should be usable for several generations to come. Get it in either black or white to match your Dot.
Give your Echo Dot (2nd Gen) some oomph with this alarm clock and speaker duo. It's perfect for use in your living room or bedroom since you can adjust the brightness of the clock, control Alexa enabled smart home devices, and listen to music. You'll find an auxiliary-in connection and two USB ports on the backside.
This cute piece of decor doubles as a holder for the 1st and 2nd Gen Echo Dot. Plug your Alexa device in using the hole in the owl's backside. This also helps hide cables and keeps your room looking tidy. The bottom of the holder is lined with a soft cushion to protect surfaces in your home and keep your Echo Dot from sliding around.
The neutral colors of the various Echo devices can be pretty bland. If you're looking to spice up your 3rd Gen Echo Dot, this is the case to consider. It comes in four bright colors: hot pink, Bahama blue, candy red, and Irish green. And of course, it will protect your Echo Dot from scratches, drops, and bumps.
If you'd like a more modern look to your home or would prefer to have your Echo Dot (3rd Gen) out of site, consider mounting it into the wall or ceiling using this kit. It's designed to let you see the ring of light through the grill and you can even press Echo Dot buttons through the plastic if you want to.
If you're buying the new compact Echo Show device you'll appreciate having an adjustable stand to go with it. The Alexa device is held in place using the stand's magnetic base. Tilt the screen up when standing close or angle it down if it's on a higher surface than you and you'll always have a good viewing angle.
Sold as an accesory for the Echo Flex, this handy plug-in can light the way in a dark hallway or garage. It can be set to routines or timers, and you can even change the color of the light.
Another accessory for the Echo Flex, this motion sensor is a great way to trigger actions or routines that you set up in your Alexa app. Turn on lights, set alarms, or reorder supplies just by walking by!
If you own an Echo Spot, this would be the ideal stand to purchase for it. It swivels 360-degrees, tilts up and down, and happens to be one of the least expensive Echo Spot stands on the market. It securely keeps your Spot in place using a magnet and comes in both black and white.
Some Echo devices can be pretty expensive, so you'll want to take the necessary precautions to protect them as much as possible. We recommend this screen protector for the Echo Show (2nd Gen) since it's inexpensive, scratch proof, and will shield your display from dust and fingerprints.
The Echo Show (2nd Gen) is much easier to use when you can adjust the screen up and down to face you more accurately. This stand allows that to happen and matches the color of the Echo Show (2nd Gen) beautifully. Just point it in the direction you want to use it and your viewing experience will improve.
If you're one of the few souls who have been invited to purchase the Echo Auto, you'll want to take advantage of this vent mount. It keeps the Echo Auto in place via magnet and rotates to fit a number of different vent shapes. Best of all, it holds your cables so they don't go flapping about and get in the way of your dash buttons.
Applaud to the Echo
Whether you're looking for something to help you better control your smart home or simply trying to spice up how your Echo devices look, there are so many fun and helpful accessories to use. Before making any purchases, you'll want to make sure the accessory you're interested in works with the specific generation of the Echo devices that you own. Echo devices tend to change in size and shape with each new version.
We highly recommend the Caramote Portable Battery base that works for the Echo (3rd Gen) or the Echo Plus (2nd Gen). You'll be able to take your Echo outdoors or use it anywhere wirelessly for 6-9 hours. If you'd rather get something a little more universal, the Alexa Voice Remote (2nd Gen) works with all current Echo devices including the Echo (1st and 2nd gen). Echo Dot (1st, 2nd, and 3rd gen), Echo Plus (1st and 2nd gen), Echo Show (1st and 2nd gen) and the Echo Spot. It'll help you to make Alexa commands from a distance as well as manually pause, start or adjust the volume of your music.
