Tips are very handy. Where to buy would also be helpful. Have seen the gear ties but not the clear pouch. Thanks

You can get gear ties at most Lowe*s stores. Please check your area. Or home depot??

hi! 🙂 are cable wire charger allowed in carry-on bag?

Earl Woode · July 31, 2019 at 8:27 am

Do those chargers charge as fast as the originals? Or do they take a lot longer like using an iPhone charger to charge an iPad?

Thank you great tips

Your best attribute is your calm voice, that is what makes the review more enjoyable. Also the videographer does a fantastic job of bringing things into focus and out of focus back on forth to align with the commentary. Superb.

I just dont understand you people. If you have a laptop with usb's you can charge simutaneaously as a minimum, your phone and your watch while charging the computer at night when sleeping. To transfer files from your camera to your computer, just remove the card, load it in the computer and save them, you dont need a cable for that. Etc. etc. etc…. I never travel with more than 2 or 3 cables and only because my camera doesnot charge if plugged to usb do I have to carry its charger ! Minimal weight and stuff is the rule, not more bags on bags !

Ta ta lol

Holli + Huckleberry · July 31, 2019 at 8:27 am

Ok ok I've subscribed thanks the help I need it I'm a travel noob 😂 but I'll get there!!

chris 1 · July 31, 2019 at 8:27 am

You've worked hard finding that stuff. Brilliant, so here's on for you. Try the Mogics Doughnut Adapter. Perfect design although it's a little fragile…

PixelFever42 _ · July 31, 2019 at 8:27 am

Lexi’s LPS · July 31, 2019 at 8:27 am

I just use a ziplock bag 😂😂

Jeric Roi Ferrer · July 31, 2019 at 8:27 am

Hi! Question. Can you put the belkin adapter thingy in your carry-on luggage? Will the security be okay with that? Thank you! Love your videos ❤️

ay300000 · July 31, 2019 at 8:27 am

Here is a suggestion for you (for this clip, and other clips you posted re packing) — Try to stay away from all these PVC bags! Not good for you, not good for the environment. There are plenty of other bags you can use, plenty of materials, safe and sound, even feel better (texture) and even cheaper. Good luck

Sandy Koong · July 31, 2019 at 8:27 am

I use the Cocoon Grid It.

Wally WB · July 31, 2019 at 8:27 am

I just found this and it looks a bit like your clear pouch. I think the elastic bands are not very good or useful. But it might work still: https://www.amazon.de/BUBM-Rechteck-Transparente-Reisetasche-Organisator/dp/B01716YOTS/ref=sr_1_171?ie=UTF8&qid=1478513868&sr=8-171&keywords=bubm

Clive Sumang · July 31, 2019 at 8:27 am

Just use rubber bands if your cheap, like me.

I personally do it a bit different when I travel. I almost always bring my laptop. So I have this one pouch that has my laptop charger, a wireless mouse, and an external hard drive inside. It goes with my laptop. I have another pouch that has my lightning cable, a micro usb cable, my powerbank that can give about 2-3 full charges on my phone, and some earphones. So these generally go with my phone and ipod. So if I'm just going out somewhere, I just carry this pouch, and if I'm going to some cafe to work on stuff on my laptop, I take both pouches.

I love your video!!!! Soooo helpful, but a tip, you sound a little like a robot. Add more feeling, I know you have compassion, so go ahead and spruce it up😂!

Martha Anderson · July 31, 2019 at 8:27 am

If you take your. Laptop where do you store it for safety?

Rose Macdonald · July 31, 2019 at 8:27 am

Marina Sem · July 31, 2019 at 8:27 am

I like to use hair ties to keep my cords organized. It also comes in handy when you lose a billion hair ties, like me!

packing…the ocd way

FlyingMonkies325 · July 31, 2019 at 8:27 am

Or you could roll up all the chargers, put them together them put 2 wire tyes or gear tyes (whichever you prefer), around all of the chargers, make sure that all of the USB ends are on 1 side and the parts you plug into your electronics is on the other side, label the USB sides with some sticky labels so you know which one is for which electronic, the other side you plug into your electronics is easy to recognize because they are all different shapes and sizes so you already know which is which, just the USB ends tend to look the same. Adjust them while holding them so that they hang a little so you can easily put stuff on charge and the rolled up part doesn't get in the way.

Once you have done that it will be neat and your not fishing for chargers inside your backpack because they are all together in 1 place :), so much easier to find. I like that Scooba organizer though it's nice and compact, i'm satisfied with just putting all my wires together and labeling them then putting them inside a leather pouch that is from my Shure microphone, i never use the mic so i put the pouch to good use, i can put anything i want on charge from my laptop neatly.

Linamaria · July 31, 2019 at 8:27 am

Hello Sonia! Have you ever tried "grid it"? Is a wonderful alternative. Thank you for your videos 🙂

Angelica Desautels · July 31, 2019 at 8:27 am

I recently found 2 pouches by a company called Monoprice. If you don't bring a lot of cables I suggest the mini universal electronic organizer. If you bring a lot of cables then I suggest the universal electronic organizer.

Klaree · July 31, 2019 at 8:27 am

What camera do you use? =) 

oftheaprilbirds · July 31, 2019 at 8:27 am

I found the clear bag Sonia shows in this video. http://www.amazon.com/Travel-Smart-Conair-Sundry-Bag/dp/B005XH1EJG/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1420571435&sr=8-6&keywords=travel+smart

As a motorcyclist I got to know an excellent british brand called Kriega. Their backpacks are EXCEPTIONALLY comfortable to wear, specially if you're using bulky motorcycle jackets – but if well set up, they fit well over casual clothes too. They have this organizer called "Kube", which I'm going to buy for this purpose (oganizing cables) and check out if they're up to the task. Also, Eagle Creek has some very lightweight stuff, but it's a pitty they're kinda expensive and only sold in "sets". Nice video, btw.

Priya Salve · July 31, 2019 at 8:27 am

where did u buy the clear pouch?

Raquel B. · July 31, 2019 at 8:27 am

Where did you buy the clear pouch I can't find one that is as big as that one

Darcy Parker · July 31, 2019 at 8:27 am

Have you tried a Grid-it? I've been curious about how well they work.

autum paris · July 31, 2019 at 8:27 am

Eh..you talk too dramatic..over acting.

Giovanna Giovanna · July 31, 2019 at 8:27 am

Like the fact that you give several choices for each problem.
