From BGR:
You know what? If streaming media dongles like the Roku Streaming Stick, Fire TV, and Fire TV Stick came with a compact little USB charging cable like the StarTech 1 ft Micro USB Cable instead of regular power cables with wall adapters, the companies that make them would probably save a ton of money. On top of that, they’re better for consumers because they let you connect your device to the USB port on the back of your TV for power, meaning there will be no cables at all running from the back of your TV. Until someone invents a powered HDMI port, this is the best way to power your media streamer, and it’s discounted right now on Amazon.

In addition, it also declutters your TV area by replacing long and tangled USB cables, saves plenty of space in your living or entertainment rooms, and best of all, reduces the wear and tear on cables.
