The power adapter shipped with the Amazon Alexa Generation 2 Echo Dot smart speaker is a typical medium-current USB switching power supply, that features a female A style USB connector, as shown in the next picture.
The US version of this USB power supply sports a standard 120v two prong, non polarized plug, featuring non retractable prongs, as displayed next.
Foldable prongs are not always helpful, particularly for non portable applications for the Echo Dot 2, which requires external power to operate. Foldable prongs can develop intermittent connections and loosen over time, causing unreliable operation and speaker cutouts. So for the Echo Dot 2, where the adapter is not likely to be plugged and unplugged very much, we feel that concealable prongs would offer little added value to this USB adapter, and potentially lots of problems.
