Ive heard many good things from zip lock bags to old amenity kits.

I use the packing cell like this one in the link - mind you its similar to the Ikea type.

A Jacket with multiple zipper pockets. You can organize your cables and have them with you at your seat for ready access. Plus, airlines do not count your jacket against your carry-on or personal item. If you do not want to wear it, just bungee cord it to the top of you carry on, and thus the zipper pockets to keep stuff from falling out.

I bought one of those zippered bags they sell at office supply stores for school supplies. It is the kind you put in a 3 ring binder. Got it after the back to school rush for about $2. Has a clear front and is very durable. Also bright red, so I can find it easily.

Even tough that solution works it is not very professional!

For me cables and chargers and other small stuff goes into this thing:

Travel Smart by Conair. I like it and it does its job well! I use it in my carry on and it has been designed with TSA in mind, you can arrange your stuff so that nothing is hidden so that the security personnel do not need to open anything to check what is inside. Also for me it is just the right size.

I use some old zipper pouch United business class amenity kits that are not opaque. The Delta Tumi pouches match my Tumi carry-on stuff, but being made of opaque material is why I don't use the Delta ones as much as I had once anticipated.

Here is the United type to which I'm referring:

I have zip ties which has a rectangle for labeling that I attach to the zipper pull of my DL Tumi pouches for various cables/adapter/chargers.

I had gone that route but the issue was that I had to still open the DL Tumi pouches to visually inspect if they were complete or not.

An ability to visually inspect the contents without opening the pouch is important for me, and I get that ability with those older UA pouches but not with the DL Tumi pouches.

If other factors were more important than the quick visual inspection of pouch's internal contents, then I would have gravitated toward returning to the DL Tumi pouches or some of the other airline amenity kits to use for cable storage/transport.

This is so funny--I have the exact case and have been using it for the exact same purpose! Recently though I got a charging dock for my phone that also charges a spare battery, and it's too bulky for the Muji case. So I've ordered the Tom Bihn Travel Tray because it should hold even bulky chargers and it will moonlight as a catch-all tray for the hotel room.

I auditioned the Osprey Powerhouse. I liked the interior organization--there are stretch-mesh pockets on either side, one of which is divided in half for smaller items and charging cords, and in the middle is a large undivided compartment for bulky items. I sent it back though because I didn't like the flap closure and the bag didn't really do much more than any freebie cosmetic or amenity bag would do.

I picked up a pair of these Dell branded storage pouch/case for their laptop power bricks, it's thin & light, un-zipped wide open & has inside mesh pockets to keep small items from flying all over. Has room for the adapter, cat5 cable, travel mouse, usb cables & charger - as long as padded protection isn't required.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-LOT-Dell-B.../201343819812?

When traveling with lots of cables, extensions, adapters, I also pack them into Eagle Creek pack it half cubes, that's virtually indestructible with the mesh screen, so I can usually do a quick glance to make sure everything is there & ready to go. http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Eagle-Cr.../261878000175?

For items like smartphone, wallet, in-ear headsets (and, passports) and usb drives, etc. - they go into the slim EC Pack It Sac, which has the click that I can hook onto a # of places inside the day pack, messenger bag, backpack or single carry-on ... which I used previously for cables & found it to be slightly smaller. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Eagle-Creek-.../261561181498?

That is exactly what I need. Don't tell me I'm going to have to buy an OCZ power supply to get one?! I haven't owned a PC in years.

I would post on forums like http://hardforum.com/forumdisplay.php?f=17 and http://forums.anandtech.com/forumdisplay.php?f=19

I have contacted OCZ and offered to buy a few and they sent me a few for free but that was years ago. Since the shop now has a gear section, t-shirt and stuff maybe they'd be willing to sell them...
