I usually have at least 3 different charging cords loose in my backpack. Inevitably they get all tangled up along with a pair or two of ear buds. I'm looking for a way to keep everything separate and from getting tangled up.

Any good ideas? I'm considering trying to find some sort of heavy duty twist ties I can use to keep them all wrapped up.

Thanks

I put them in a small zippered pouch. works great. I keep chargers, an ethernet cable, spare earbuds, etc in it.

Empty toilet paper rolls, or old sunglasses cases.

I roll and tie mine just like they're microphone or speaker cables. Roll and then tie one loose end over the bundle. After having rolled miles of cable, I can do it without even thinking.

Good ideas. I'm trying to keep them accessible, I would rather not have another bag/pouch in my bag. The rubber band idea is actually not bad and very simple. Maybe I can find some heavy duty rubber bands.

I also saw on google people using cloths pins to keep them wrapped up and clipped.

Use a small pouch which is dummy corded to the inside of my backpack. and a zip tie all of the USB ones together.

Phone, speaker, IPOD - white. Get a double USB charger for a few bucks.



IPAD uses a green cord found at Walmart. Label maker makes everything nice nice.

The toilet paper roll idea is cool. Would take up to much space tho I think. I might try it with smaller tubes of some sort.
