Default Retractable Cordwinder for your charger - 11-23-2008, 09:30 PM

[img][img][/img][/img]

Thought I'd share this...

I bought this for the charger when I had my EEE PC901. It's a medium Cord Manager from http://www.cableorganizer.com in clear. They come in black, clear and beige. This is the medium 3" which is pretty much maxed out with this charger so no need for the larger 4" version...although that comes in white.

Here's the link to the product on their site:

http://cableorganizer.com/cord-it/#1640

It pulls apart quickly and it easily spins around in your hand to wind up the cord. Great to just keep the amount of cord you need exposed as well.

It's only $2 and shipping is only a few bucks.

Interesting gadget. Looks like it might not fit too well in the Timbuk2 case that I got, though. The cheap man's option: I just use a twist-tie to keep the coil together, and undo only as much as I need when I plug in...

Excellent and cheap.

But 27 USD for shipping it here...
Does anyone know a way to get this in Europe ?

I like how you can just reel out what you need and keep the rest...kept.

That's a clever idea!
