From earlier: “Sticks” might be the best thing that has ever happened to streaming. Instead of having a set-top box taking up space, these awesome little gadgets disappear behind your TV and still give you access to everything you’d find using a set-top box. The annoying thing about them, however, is that you still have to run a cord to a wall outlet in order to plug them in… or do you?

The UGREEN Micro USB Cable Power Cable Charging for TV Sticks only costs $6 on Amazon right now, and it’s probably the best $6 you’ll ever spend. Instead of plugging into the wall for power, these cords let you plug into your TV’s USB port — and they’re only 6-inches long so you don’t have all that slack hanging down like you would if you used a normal 3-foot cable. If you have a Roku Streaming Stick, a Fire TV Stick, or an All-New Fire TV, take advantage of this deal ASAP.
