To prevent your cables, chargers, SD cards, batteries and other accessories from getting lost in the bottom of your bag, you need a system to organize them. Let's look at our favorites.
In recent years, I have noticed a kind of cable disturbance. I used to travel with my Nokia charger and that was just about everything. So it's no surprise to see someone lugging a multitude of USB cables, three charging bricks, an external battery, a computer charger, a Chromecast, a camera charger and who knows what to do. ;other. I am one of those people. Personally, I have to pack all the technological extras for my iPhone, Kindle, MacBook and DSLR. it adds up.
There are many different systems that claim to better classify all your technological equipment. That's why we are going to pin down the best. There is something that will suit all technology users.
Ideal for many things: BUBM Double Layer Electronic Organizer ($ 17)
If you bring everything, including your HDTV – or just have a clan of kids crazy gadgets – the organizer BUBM Electronics double layer is exactly what you are looking for. This 10.7 "x 8" x 1 "gadget bag is big enough for an iPad and has an extra internal splitter allowing you to store even more stuff.
The BUBM uses a combination of elastic loops, pockets and zippered compartments to allow you to carry all combinations of cables, chargers, flash cards, thumb drives and other technology equipment. The only problem is that, with an inch thick, larger charge blocks, external batteries, camera chargers and some international plugs do not fit or become annoying and blocking.
Ideal for cables: Cocoon Grid-IT! Organizer 5 "x7" ($ 11)
If you just want to tame your unruly cable knot, a Cocoon Grid-IT! The organizer is the best option. The Grid-IT! uses a band of elastic straps that allows you to secure your cables as you wish.
Cocoon claims that you can also use it to organize chargers, USB sticks and other larger objects, but in reality, after trying to do that, it's not quite true. It's possible, but it's not practical and I ended up not worrying about trying to squeeze my camera charger into a strap that would not hold it anyway.
That being said, Grid-IT! is great. There are a few different sizes but we love the 5 "x 7" format. It's small enough that you do not even need to think about wearing it, but still big enough to attach all the cables your technical equipment needs.
Ideal for throwing objects into: maximum design technical pocket ($ 59)
At the magazine Geek, we are big fans of Peak Design . Their products often make our Best Of lists with good reason. However, they still have the same caveat: The Peak Design hardware, though unbelievable, is normally one of the most expensive in the category. The Peak Design Tech Pouch priced at $ 59, is no exception to the rule.
The Tech Pouch is distinguished by the fact that, instead of using elastic straps or straps, it is provided with flexible internal dividers. At 9.4 x 5.9 x 3.9 ", it is also much thicker than all our other choices. The combination of a larger bag and flexible compartments means that the Tech Pouch pouch is far more apt to carry bulky items such as laptop bricks, hard drives, chargers and more. cameras, etc. It can really carry all your technical accessories.
It's also much simpler to use: you will not have to worry about putting something back on an uncomfortable elastic strap, you can just throw it into any empty compartment. I found out that I was actually using the Tech Pouch more than any other solution, especially when I was in a hurry.
If you have a lot of bulky gear and you pay double the price of our most expensive option, the Tech Pouch is the best in its class. If you just want to keep some cables organized, it's probably a bit too much.
Best Versatile Player: Skooba R750-300 Cable Stable DLX ($ 23)
In our view, the best balance between storage capacity, ease of use and price is the Skooba R750-300 DLX Cable Stable . At 12.2 "x 9" x 1.6 ", it's a little bigger and, more importantly, a bit thicker than the BUBM. Without the divider, it has a lot less pockets and elastic straps, but unless you're carrying an underwater USB cable, you'll have no trouble keeping your charger somewhere.
A good contact with Skooba is that there is an extra zippered compartment on the front of the cover. This is the ideal place for the cable that you should always grab.
Although I adore my technical pocket, at this price, I can really recommend it only to people who travel a lot or who absolutely need what she offers. For all others, the Skooba Cable Stable DLX is the best choice.
