Okay seriously, why on Earth hasn’t someone invented a powered HDMI port protocol yet? Media streaming dongles are insanely popular right now and they’ll continue to be insanely popular for the foreseeable future. It’s awesome that they’re so compact, but what’s the point if you still have to run yet another power cord to the back of your TV? Luckily, there’s a solution: just pick up a Cable Matters Combo-Pack Right Angle USB Cable.
Connect a cable from the power port on your Fire TV Stick, Roku Streaming Stick, or Chromecast to the USB port on the back of your TV. Then throw the power cable and wall adapter that came with your dongle straight into the trash. This multifunction item is also great for reducing and managing clutter cable in your home and is even equipped with a micro USB to charge windows tablets and other devices.
