It’s nice being organized, isn’t it?
I enjoy having everything in its right place, a pocket for this, a compartment for that – especially while I’m on the road.
But traveling and staying organized is easier said than done. It’s surprisingly simple to be left tearing your hair out when everything gets messed up.
This can be particularly true when it comes to your electronic equipment and devices.
Because try as you might, you can guarantee that even though you neatly wound up your earphone cable, by the time you retrieve it from your pocket it’ll be more tangled than a plate of spaghetti.
And not only that, packing chargers, batteries, SD cards, power banks, and other essential kit can be a logistical nightmare – even more so if you’re short on space.

It’s easily one of the most stylish products in this field, perfect for business or more formal trips.
It’s really charming as an overall travel organizer, to keep the things you need altogether while you’re on the move. You might not use it for electronic accessories at all.

What to Look for When Choosing the Best Travel Electronics Organizer
You might just want to jump right in and pick the product you think will best suit your electronic tidying needs, but if you’d like to take a minute, here’s some useful info that just might help you make your choice.
The best electronic organizers usually have the same or similar design – a book-style zipped case with various dividers, pockets, mesh, elasticated bands, and compartments to store all your gear in.
Some designs are more like wallets or purses.
Others might be more like a pouch or in a wash bag style.
Some are very similar to packing cubes which are extremely useful items when it comes to keeping all your belongings organized on any length of trip.
The style you prefer will no doubt depend on what you need to keep organized and where you’re likely to be taking it.
Cables, wires and other knick-knacks are almost as important as the electronic devices themselves – and anyone who’s ever been unable to use a broken charger will testify to that.
It stands to reason then, that a good electronic organizer will be sturdy enough to protect all those essential items that keep us plugged into the world.
Bear that in mind if you’re thinking of saving a few pennies with a poorly made budget option.
Organizers come in a variety of materials such as canvas, leather, nylon, plastic or otherwise.
Again, it’s down to personal preference and what you like the look and feel of.
However, different materials will have their plus and minus points, such as how heavy the product is or, perhaps most importantly, its water-resistant qualities – or lack thereof.
Nobody wants a soaking wet battery pack or power bank, and if you choose to keep important documents in there too – you’re asking for trouble if you’re caught in a monsoon in Thailand with a product that’s as waterproof as a napkin.
Size & Weight
If you’ve got lots of stuff – get a larger case. Simple. But remember that some organizers can take up more space than you might think.
And while these products aren’t exactly going to break your back when transporting, weight soon adds up quickly when you’re packing for a trip.
If you’re intending to travel as light as possible, choose an organizer that reflects that. You shouldn’t have to make it a choice between this and a first aid kit if you’re climbing a mountain.
Pockets and Compartments
These things have one job to do – keep your kit in order. They should be packing loads of features for them to accomplish this.
Electronic organizers will come with various pockets and compartments specifically designed for each individual item.
SD card pouches, cable tidies, notepad or kindle holder, battery sections… it should all be there.
And the best cable organizer bag will also offer additional storage for non-electrical items such as your passport, driving license, or photo of your mom.
Elastic, Mesh or Zippers?
You’ll find that all of these organizers incorporate one, two or all of these features to keep your kit from coming loose when you’re on the go.
It’s still worth mentioning here though, as they all can wear over time.
Elastic can lose its ability to grip things in place and become loose, mesh can develop holes that allow your stuff to pass through and zippers can break easily or not open and close at all.
Make sure when you’re choosing the best travel cable organizer you take these things into consideration and do your research.
You don’t want it falling apart on you after a few uses – so look out for those made with care and quality.
The best electronic organizers for travel will come at a price, but thankfully this time, that price isn’t exorbitant.
You shouldn’t be paying any more than thirty bucks for one of these unless it’s made from 24-carat gold and diamond encrusted, and to my knowledge, they’ve not made one of those – yet.
There’s a great selection of the best electronic organizers for you to choose from, so you shouldn’t have any trouble making your decision.
To be perfectly honest, the market isn’t exactly saturated with this kind of product, which should make your task a lot easier.
At the time of writing and with a few exceptions, what you see here is pretty much what you get – or variations thereof.
Let me know in the comments which design you’re likely to go for and why. Good luck and happy organizing!
