Amazon Echo Show Stands and Wall Mounts
Below are my top picks for Echo Show stands and mounts for the all-new Echo Show 8, Echo Show 5, Echo Show 2nd-Generation, and Echo Show 1st-Generation models. If you want to see even more stand options for the Show, check out: 13 Best Stands for Echo Show 8, 5, 2nd Gen, & 1st Gen.
1 All-New Echo Show 8 Premium Tilt + Swivel
While this stand probably won’t win any awards for flashy design, it scored points with me for its utility. Notably, it is the only stand for the Echo Show 8 available today that will tilt AND swivel. Yes, that’s right. Currently, this is the only game in town if you want both tilt and swivel for the Echo Show 8. I definitely like this “premium” option better than the default Amazon Echo Show 8 stand.
2 Amazon’s Adjustable Stand for Echo Show 5
Customers who purchased this stand on Amazon say its a necessary investment in order to view the new Echo Show 5 optimally. A raised notch on the top of the stand fits into the cutout notch on the bottom of the Show.The sturdy stand is made out high-quality plastic. It allows you to adjust the Show forward and backward for optimal viewing. There is not slip material on the bottom of the stand to keep it in place. The height is not adjustable however and the stand cannot be rotated or tilted to the side.
3 YoFew 360 Stand for Echo Show 2nd-Generation
If you were one of the lucky ones to get a 2nd Gen Echo Show despite it selling out early in the holiday season, then we would like to say congratulations. Now, why not give it a little lift and some rotating action. The YoFeW not only gets the Echo Show off your counter, but it also gives it just the right amount of tilt. Best of all, you can rotate it 360 degrees. We think it looks pretty stylish too. This is currently Amazon’s Choice for a 2nd-Gen Show stand. Take one for a spin today.
AutoSonic makes a similar stand to YoFew. Check out this handy setup video from Louie Shearon here.
4 Digital Services Stand for Echo Show 2nd-Gen
While we like the YoFew stand better, this is a solid runner-up. It consistently gets high ratings on Amazon and owners enjoy it. It doesn’t score as high in our tests as the YoFew however, for one main reason. It’s plastic, and we were expecting it to be made of a metal of some sort (e.g., aluminum). It’s all good though. If you can’t afford the higher price tag or if the YoFew stand is unavailable [it often sells out], the Digital Services stand is a solid second choice. We suggest reading some of the reviews on Amazon if you need help justifying either decision. 😉
5YoFew Stand for Echo Show 1st Generation
Like the YoFeW stand for the 2nd Generation, the YoFeW Echo Show stand for the 1st-Generation model is also Amazon’s Choice. Similarly, it is designed to fit the 1st-Gen model perfectly, give your Echo a lift off your counter or side table, and provide a 360-degree swivel. It also has a click-in-place capability to let you lock it in place, once you have found the perfect position to the latest episode of The Man in the High Castle, Mr. Robot, or Sneaky Pete. It doesn’t score as high on the awesomeness meter as the 2nd-Gen stand, because it tipped over when we were installing the Show into it. We suggest putting it in front of a wall if you plan to use this in a high traffic area.
Our thanks to Cindy Xiao for this video “showing” the stand in action.
6 HumanCentric Wall Mount for Echo Show 2nd Gen
Why would you go with the HumanCentric Wall Mount for Amazon Echo Show 2nd Generation when there are other options available. I’ll give you three reasons. First, at the time of this writing, it is currently Amazon’s choice for a wall mount for the Echo Show 2nd Generation. Second, this is, in my opinion, the most professional looking mount that you can get for the Echo Show today. Its sleek design cradles the show to give it a more natural-looking presentation than some of the other pedestal mounts. Third, it is just as affordable as the competition. The only drawback of this mount is that, while it swivels from side to side, it will not tilt up and down.
7 ATOPHK Swivel and Tilt Wall Mount for Show 2nd Gen
If you want to mount your Amazon Echo Show 2nd Generation on any wall in your home, this highly rated wall mount is the way to go. Made from aluminum alloy, it is able to not just rotate horizontally 270° but it will even let you tilt it a full 25°. The package includes everything you need for DIYers including the stands, two rotate “buttons,” and four drywall screws. The Show fits securely in the mount, so you don’t have to worry about it crashing to the floor.
8 OMOTON Screen Protector for Echo Show 1st Generation
While we typically don’t recommend screen protection for devices, we think having a little extra protection on the Show is prudent. This counts double if you plan to keep it in the kitchen, where splashing might be an issue. While there is no screen protection product we feel comfortable recommending for the 2nd Gen show at this time, customers are very satisfied with the OMOTON Tempered Glass Screen Protector for Echo Show 1st Gen. It is also Amazon’s Choice.

Stands and Wall Mounts for the Echo Spot
9 Adjustable Echo Spot Stand from Amazon
The Echo Spot is one of our favorite devices. Small and compact, we think it makes a great bedside companion. We love being able to see as well as hear our weather reports first thing in the morning. I don’t know about you, but I typically take a bottle of water to bed with me every night.Whether this is in your living room, kitchen or by your bedside, the Echo Spot Adjustable Stand gives it just enough lift to avoid inevitable spillage.
“The biggest benefit… is that it gives an excellent boost to sound quality.”
However, the biggest benefit, according to customers, is that it gives an excellent boost to sound quality. It also adds a nice bit of tilt and it looks stylish too. It comes in white or black to match the color of your Spot. Or heck, feel free to mix it up if you like a bovine look 🐄.
Our thanks to GadgetPrime for the epic stand video.
10Echo Spot Wall Mount by HumanCentric
If you would rather mount your Echo Spot on the wall, check out the highly rated HumanCentric Wall Mount. It includes an adjustable bracket and provides both horizontal rotation and vertical tilting. The mount comes with drywall screws and anchors so installation is super simple. It also makes the Spot sound better. We think this would make for an excellent smart-home control installed in an entryway. Ooh, perhaps mounted in a breezeway or even a garage? Very human-centric, indeed.

Echo Dot Stands and Wall Mounts
11Bovon Wall Mount / Hanger for Echo Dot 3rd Generation
Out of all the accessories we reviewed, this is one of the most popular and highest rated on Amazon. Customers love how easy it is to install and use this portable wall mount. Ideal for your bathroom or kitchen [or anyplace else you want to put a dot], the Bovon Outlet Wall Mount Hanger Holder Stand for Echo Dot 3rd Generation helps Alexa hang out in an Elegant fashion.
“Customers love how easy it is to install and use this portable wall mount.”
This stand helps you save space and eliminate messy cords while hiding the Echo Dot’s cords inside of a plastic case. Best of all, there are no mounting screws or tape. You just plug into an existing wall outlet. Plus, it looks cool too.
12BonFook Wall Mount / Hanger for Echo Dot 2nd Generation
Haven’t got the 3rd Generation but rather a 2nd Generation Echo Dot? Not to worry. The BonFook Outlet Wall Mount Hanger Stand for home voice assistants provides a very similar solution for your 2nd-Gen Dot. Ahhhh. No more kooky cable clutter. We like that 👍.
13Upduro-Wall Mount / Hanger for Echo Dot 2nd Generation
Another nice wall mount for the Echo Dot 2nd-Gen is made by Upduro. Wires be gone! This stand also hides that unsightly wire-y mess. The Echo Dot 2nd generation fit perfectly in our test. The company claims that the mount is crushproof and “dushproof” [dust proof…hmmm?] for the Echo Dot to boot. It comes with an illustrated step-by-step guide for installation. However, we are very confident you can figure this out all on your own.

Echo Dot Carrying and Battery Cases
14BASENOR Carrying Case for Echo Dot
15Zero Lemon Battery Case for Echo Dot 2nd Gen
If you looking to unplug Alexa and still give her plenty of juice to satisfy your demands, look no further than the Zero Lemon Echo Dot Battery Charger for your 2nd Generation Echo Dot. The powerful 7500mAh Li-polymer battery charging base will keep your Echo Dot working for an additional 8-12 hours at full charge. This should be plenty of power whether you’d like to take your Echo Dot on a road trip or even use her while working or relaxing outside. Come to think of it, you could even put Alexa in your car with this add-on [requires a hotspot internet connection]. Hurry up and make one of these for the 3rd-Gen Dot, please!
16BENTOBEN Wall Mount/Case for Echo Dot 2nd Generation
There are many cool wrapper cases [sometimes also called “skins”] available for the Echo Dot. The pink one pictured here is one of the most popular for the 2nd-Gen model, and it has to be our favorite style [in black].
17Amazon Fabric Case / Wrapper
Want to make your 2nd-Generation Dot look just like a 3rd-Generation dot with the fabric outer wrapper? Now you can with the VERY affordable Amazon Echo Dot 2nd-Generation Fabric Case.
Thanks to Brandon Hicks for the thoughtful video review.
18Angel Speaker Stand for Amazon Echo Dot 2nd and 1st Generation
I’m no angel, but I’m a fan of this cute and stylish way to dress up the Echo Dot 2nd Generation. This item has a near perfect rating on Amazon. In fact, it is one of the highest rated products we have seen there. I suppose it’s would be bad karma to give a negative rating to an angel 👼. It is hand carved and the company claims it will not interfere with Echo Dot’s sound or function. Something to be aware of…a few customers have [happily] said is larger than they expected it to be. You can check the reviews on Amazon for actual customer photos of the product. The same company makes a reindeer and a snowman holder too.
19Owl Speaker Stand /Holder for Echo Dot
If you want to make Alexa and your Echo Dot 2nd-generation OR 1st generation a little wiser, the Owl Statue Echo Dot holder is a real hoot. Ideal for a coffee table or maybe even a mantle, this decorative piece gives Alexa your home a little added animal magnetism. Word to the wise: both the angel and this owl are purely decorative holders for your Echos. That is, they don’t do anything other than look good. Still, they are hugely popular and highly rated on Amazon. The owl is also currently “Amazon’s Choice” for a decorative Echo holder.

20Smatree Portable Battery Case for Echo 2nd Generation
Another great accessory to help with Alexa on the go is the Smatree Portable Battery Base for Echo 2nd Generation or 1st Generation smart speakers. While there were problems with the previous version of this base, the manufacturer has addressed them and the new version will no longer turn off when the Echo goes into standby mode. Cool. Judging from the Amazon customer reviews, this is true. More than one owner is delighted to use the base with their Echo while sipping drinks on their deck. Cheers to them!🍸🍷.
21Chandelier Echo Speaker Stand with Crystals
Here’s a cool way to add a little bling to your Echo. It’s the Chandelier Echo Speaker Stand with Crystals! Wow, if there was ever a question about the design of the old generation Echo Dot speakers being too drab, this item certainly solves it. Decked out from top to bottom in dozens upon dozens of crystals, this wrapper for your 1st Generation Echo device gives it a more refined look. Pardon, me but could pass the Gray Poupon? LOL.SEE IT AT AMAZON
