Size of Power Plug

I recently set up a 3-puck installation of eero at home.  Everything was super easy and the help info regarding how to place the pucks in relationship to my Verizon router was spot on.

The only problem I ran into was that the eero power plug does not play nice with power boards.  I have a power board that can take 6 plugs ... but a combination of the eero, vonage and another plug meant that only 3 were available ... and even then only with some careful arrangements of the plugs.

The eero power plug covers any adjacent outlet ... any change of getting a power plug that isn't so wide?

    Hi  tjp

    Thanks for reaching out and welcome to the eero community!

    We appreciate your feedback and request. At this time, we don't have any plans to produce an alternate size power plug. With that said, while it is necessary to use the eero power adapter (per our warranty), you can attach an extension cord if your eero can't reach an outlet or it doesn't fit well on a surge protector.

    Here is an example of something you could use:


     Thanks again for the feedback!

    Thx for the reply Jeff.  I have a couple of those 1' extension cables - very useful.  The only problem is that they are ugly and they will drag down the charm and form of the beautiful eero cables.

    I meant to mention in my opening post that I really appreciate the thought and construction that you guys put into the cable holder.  With care, you can unravel just the right length of cable that you need.

    Couldn't agree more! maybe have a power supply laptop-charger style? 
    a normal size plug with small footprint, 20inches of cable, a transformer, 20inches of cable and then the eero
