Favorite Little Things- Tiny Travel Cables

by Scott on January 3, 2010

One of my favorite things to take with me may seem silly but the more I use it the more I like it.  It’s a tiny cable.  The cable came with a Sansa music player that I got so I could listen to audio books from the library since iPods weren’t supported.  You can find them anywhere now.  The cable allows me to not bring a separate power brick for my cell phone.  When using an external drive it’s always right next to me anyway, so there’s no need to bring a 6 ft cord.  There’s no tangling to worry about like with those retractable ones, which sooner or later are going to fail to retract and rats-nest on you.  If you don’t have a memory card slot and need to transfer your photos, the tiny cable works as well as the needlessly longer cable.  Another cable to add would be a 7cm or 20 cm iPod sync cable which you can find at Amazon.  If you bring a laptop or netbook with you everywhere you go anyway you can cut down on clutter with tiny cables.
