The 8 Best Travel Cord Organizers

Share

You know the drill: no matter how neatly you fold up your earbuds, their cords somehow transform into a labyrinth-like puzzle by the time you need to retrieve them. This is where the best travel cord organizers come in handy, organizing everything from earbuds to laptop chargers.

A good cord organizer does a lot of things. Mainly, it keeps the cords from becoming a jumbled mess, but it also keeps them safe and secure, and many can even protect your cords from water damage.

When looking for the ultimate cord organizer, the first thing to consider is your lifestyle. Do you fly frequently, with various cords in your carry-on bag? A larger organizer, maybe even one with extra pockets for small gadgets, would be helpful.

Or, do you just have a few cords — say, a laptop charger and the a pair of headphones — getting in your way at work or during your morning commute? If so, there are simple, clever solutions that will make a world of difference on your desk and in your bag.

These eight travel cord organizers will keep all your cords, earbuds, and chargers neatly tucked away, but easy to access when you need them.
