Looking for specific info?

Is this necessary? I have a fire stick 4k that i use a generic micro usb cable to power directly from the tv. What does this product do?

Here is a way to get constant power to the fire tv stick 4k. It works if your tv is a long distance from a power receptacle or if you are running cables through walls:

1. Add a y splitter for your tv power cord at the tv end of the power cord.
2. Add a nema 1-15r adapter for the fire tv usb power adapter to one of the splitter outputs.

Here is an example:
many newer tvs use a 2 prong male to figure 8 female (nema 1-15p to c7) power cord.

For this power cord you will need 2 parts:
1. A c8 to 2x c7 y splitter (figure 8 male to 2 figure 8 female y splitter)
2. A c8 to nema 1-15r adapter (figure 8 male to 2 prong female adapter)
both are available on amazon. Combined price $15.98.

Installation:
1. Unplug the tv power cord from the wall outlet.
2. At the tv (c7) end of the tv power cord attach the c8 (male) end of the c8 to 2x c7 y splitter.
3. Plug one y output of the splitter into the tv.
4. Plug the c8 to nema 1-15r (figure 8 male to 2 prong female) adapter onto the other y splitter output.
5. Plug the fire tv usb power adapter into the 2 prong female adapter (nema 1-15r).
6. Plug the fire tv usb cable into the usb power adapter and then into the fire tv stick.
7. Now plug the tv power cord back into the wall outlet.

Notes:
a. Nema connectors: nema 1-15p/nema 1-15r are 2 wire 15 amp ac adapters. The male (plug) version is nema 1-15p and the female (receptacle/outlet) version is nema 1-15r.
Iec connectors: c7/c8 are 2 wire iec connectors. The female version is c7 and the male version is c8.

Other than the shape, what is the difference between this and the fatter-looking one for fire tv stick?

The stick model has a 500mah battery, this model has a bigger 2000mah battery.

Ya viene programado con los canales?

Es solo un cable que te permite conectar el fire a un puerto usb de tu televisor y así darle la corriente necesaria para funcionar. No cumple otra función que esa. El fire max es quien te da la posibilidad de ver peliculas y series a traves de netflix, amazon y otras similares. Saludos

Ya biene con internet

No, y no lo necesitas si lo que estas buscando es el fire tv de amazon. Esto es solo si detras de tu tv no tienes el conductor de electricidad. Yo devolvi las mia por que el fire tv se conecto sin esta pieza

Hiw long is usb wire ?

Hi there. This cable is 12” long.

Does this work with echo auto?

Hi! This is made to work with the amazon fire tv 4k.

Will this work witb firestick light?

It works but i returned it because it does not switch on with the tv. You have to switch it on every time you turn on your tv separately. It just a pain to use.

This product does not work nor has it ever worked i plug it in just like it says the ‘power’ last 4 mins then it just restarts every 1 min?

I’m not a very technical person, but i installed it on my tv in less than a minute and it worked first time out and has continued. Sorry

Se puede cambiar para otro tv

Thank you for your question. Yes, it can be used with amazon fire tv on another tv.

Does this cable product come with lithium batteries? If so, can i remove them prior to shipping to relatives in hawaii?

To those who answered that there are no batteries, the seller states ‘by storing excess power in the embedded battery and then releasing it when your amazon fire tv 4k demands more power than your usb port can handle…’ i am not responding to mailing it to hawaii.

The micro usb doesnt fit into the firestick power usb port its a different size than the power cord usb whats going on ?

Look at the hdmi 1 port (usually found on the of the tv). Inset fire stick connection into hdmi 1 port. The wider connection of the mission cable inserts into tv’s usb port and the smaller connection inserts into side of fire stick. All ports on tvs are standardized such that streaming device connections are compatible with all newer tvs. One of my tvs is probably 8 years old the other is much newer yet the mission cable is compatible with both tvs.

Is this antenna for local channels?

The usb power cable, made for the amazon firestick, is not an antenna. It is solely a power source. It was designed to handle peak times when a normal usb plug/connection cannot handle the extra power demands. The usb power cable is basically a battery that can supply more power than the typical throughput of the usb when the firestick needs it–so you therefore don’t get freezes or hiccups when streaming/loading programs using the amazon firestick.

If the fire stick 4k needs 5v1a and my tv’s usb ports supply 5v1a what exactly is the point of this cord?

Chances are you don’t need it if your tv really does supply a full 1000ma of current. A lot of them aren’t even rated that high and some that are rated 1a don’t quite deliver the full rated power all the time. I’ve seen quite a few 1a ports that only deliver 900-950 ma reliably. If your fire stick behaves normally all the time plugged into your tv’s usb port, you don’t need this. If it is unstable and unreliable when receiving power from the tv but rock-steady stable on the included ac wall outlet adapter, this device might be just the ticket for decluttering behind your tv.

Even tho i see the new 4k firestick in the picture…are we sure it will run it? It will not run on my usb ports…apparently different from firestik

You need to make sure you also have a 4k tv to get the effect of the enhanced screen. You won’t see it on a tv that does not have 4k. But i’ve been using the power cable and find that it works as it should. I actually forget that it’s not plugged into the wall.

Does this work with roku sticks?

No it wont ..sometimes i think people dont even take the time to read the descriptions of the items that they ask ? About instead of asking here if they read they will find there answers alot faster .but the roku and the firestick have 2 different power and amp requirements so even though both have the micro charging port on them . This won’t work at all and could end up damaging your roku if you tried it because if it gives it to my h power the roku cant handle it and i’m only talking about the roku stick not the base models

What is the full specs for this battery in the unit please?

The battery is 2000mah.

Will it work for roku stick? I think roku requires 5v 1.5a

The current (late 2019) versions of all (non-ultra) roku products specify a power requirement of 5v, 1a maximum and 2.2w nominal, which works out to about 440ma. Therefore, this device should work quite well for those devices, even on tvs that only output 500ma on the usb port. I can’t figure out for the life of me why this vendor markets separate versions for devices with identical power requirements, unless it is to avoid confusing the tl;dr crowd.

How long can this product be used, is it easy to be damaged by water?

This item isn’t intended to be used near water, it’s an electronic device…

Para q es ese cable

Este adaptador sirve como convertidor de corriente desde cualquier puerto usb del tv (que por lo general no se usa) y con ello se evita conectar el firestick a una fuente de corriente en la pared. Es muy útil ya que los puertos usb del tv no pueden proporcionar toda la energía que requiere el firestick cuando funciona a full capacidad.

Cat proof

I love my cat, but the furry little bugger has cost me far more money than i’d like to acknowledge in chewed cords. Cell phone charger cords and headphones are his favorites, but really no cord is safe. It was a bridge too far though when he chewed through the cord on my firestick. When i said i was cutting the cord on cable, he decided he was going to chew the cord on my streaming as well. Yes, you are correct cat, i watch too much tv, but you are not the boss of me! So i needed a replacement fast, i can only go so long, my tv addiction must be fed. But how to prevent it from happening again? This little beauty has done the trick. No dangling cords to temp my furry satan. My tv is now uninterrupted and i can claim victory. At least until he decides to leave hairballs on my pillow in retaliation.

Works perfectly! Very happy with the purchase and features.

I bought it on prime day at a discount several weeks ago after it was suggested by amazon to power the fire stick 4k using the tv’s usb port. Both the hdmi and usb ports are very close to each other on my tv so the cable lengths were long enough. The internal battery within the cable provides any peak power demands of the fire stick. The fire stick never drops out while watching it. Great investment. 5 stars!

Dump some wires

Works well. Removes some wires and frees up an outlet. Clean looking. I haven’t noticed the lag mentioned in some reviews.

Solved my power problems

The ac adapter was the source of my issues with the fire stick. I was told they begin to somewhat fail over time giving inconsistent voltage. Plus it cleans up the cable situation behind the tv and frees up an outlet.

Good device but a firestick is best powered constantly

The usb power device works perfectly but the usb power from a tv stops after shutdown. Firestick is designed to stay on, especially if you are using other echo speakers for the new firestick home cinema (which is spectacular).

This product would work best for a standalone tv setup, where you don’t mind waiting for the startup to complete or access to power is an issue.

One less cable

This one works. It lets me have one less power cable hooked up to the power strip. Fyi: i have an older 65′ sony non-fire tv, very high tech for its time 8 years ago. The only down side is that you give up 2 ports instead of one in connecting the fire stick. You also loose and another port, because the power in connector goes into the side of the fire stick and not the end, blocking another port. Ref: photo above. On the up-side, the older tvs have a lot of ports.

Must have when traveling

Must have when traveling and don’t have an outlet or need to save space on an existing outlet using your fire stick. Immediately goes to fire tv when powering on television.

Works but has limitations

This will allow a weak usb port to power your fire stick with an extra little battery. Don’t be fooled by the ‘premium cables’ that say they will help push your firetv amperage up over the hill. Those don’t work. This one does.

But the problem is that the usb port (on my tv at least) turns off when the tv is off, so this doesn’t get charged when the tv is off, and the firetv has no power when it’s off, so you can’t turn on the tv with hdmi-cec, and the firetv will.have tomgo through the long bootup process every time you turn it on. You’re better off splitting real ac power from the tv’s power line and running real separate power to the firetv stick. If you buy the right short cables, you can do this cleanly behind the tv. It’s not as simple as using this device, but you get a better setup and don’t spend time waiting for the firetv to boot up every time you turn on the tv. It also can’t do background auto-updates and such in the background when the tv is off, so you end up spending time waiting for updates instead of watching tv.

Works if you use your tv a lot

So i got this for my bedroom because i didn’t like seeing the cord for my fire stick dangling down my wall. It does work so when you first plug it in it hass to charge up the little box and then it’s able to cut the fire stick on and off by using the power from the television but it takes about 5 to 10 minutes. With that being said it will stay charged for a good amount of time so you can just cut it on and off as you want to and it charges as it’s on. But if you’re like me i only use the television in the bedroom at night which means it’s off usually all night and during the day so it loses the charge so every time i have to use it i have to cut the tv on wait 10 minutes cut it off and then cut it back on so it’s a great product but it’s more beneficial for those who use their television more often.

Good. But…

Good thing. The only problem i found is in the start of the tv. Because the electricity stop when you close the tv, its take time for fire to get started
