I got sick of constantly untangling the rats nest of cables and electronics accessories that kept developing in my daily bag. Organizers to the rescue!
I’ve been a big fan of the AmazonBasics Universal Travel Case in the past, but I stopped using it on a regular basis because it was bulky and wasted a lot of space in my bag. Still a solid case for the price, but not daily carry material.
I have since moved to the ProCase Travel Gear Organizer supplemented by a Cocoon Grid-It. This system is more compact and flexible than before and I really like how the ProCase is laid out. The items within are potentially less protected than with the hard-sided AmazonBasics case, but considering it’s already in a padded bag (and I don’t put anything breakable in it anyway), I’m willing to make that sacrifice. Organization efficiency trumps raw protection in this case.
The Anker SoundCore is my favorite. Dual drivers, solid sound and build quality, great battery life.
I also use the Cambridge SoundWorks OontZ Angle in places where I need some water and dust resistance (it usually lives in my kitchen).
There are much more expensive options out there, and some do have superior sound quality, but these deliver the best price to performance.
Looking for a great way to organize all your rechargeable batteries?
This ammo box is a very cheap ($2.69) and surprisingly effective solution.
Panasonic Eneloops are the best rechargeable batteries by far in my experience. They go on sale often, so if you don’t need any immediately it might be worth waiting for a cheaper price.

Which one you specifically choose depends on your max discharge current and/or budget requirements.
I use the CP1500PFCLCD from CyberPower as my main uninterruptible power supply. I’m currently searching for another smaller option for my network hardware. I will update this when I find the best one.
Looking for a good pocketable charger for your flashlight or vaporizer batteries?
I like this one from ThruNite. It even includes a 3400mah cell and can act as a battery bank in a pinch.
