This Accessory Organizes Your Charging Cables

Until you acquire a cordless charger, you will have to contend with cables of various sorts to feed your digital devices. This can be a real problem on the road. Here’s some help. The Aviiq Portable Charging Station ($59.99) is a nylon-zippered case that's 11 inches by 4 inches by 2 inches that has everything you need to keep charged and organized.

It has an AC power supply that plugs into the wall with a cable that plugs into a four-port USB hub. You can plug your device cables into the hub for charging. The prongs fold out of the device and fold back in and out of sight. The hub also has a male USB plug that tucks into the back out of the way when not in use. You can plug this into your computer or laptop as a power source too.

The power supply fits securely into the case under a band for storage. Next to it, the hub slips into a pocket for storage too. Normally you would remove both units when in use. There are four pockets on the same side of the case meant for storing cables. On the other side of the case is a large net pocket secured by Velcro at the top.

My advice would be to keep a spare set of cables in the wallet ready to go at a moment’s notice so you don’t have to worry about taking the right cables along with you.
