    Can anyone suggest a small cable organizer for travel? (I carry an iPad charger, cell phone charger, and GPS car charger when I'm on the road.) I like the Grid-It solution with elastic straps to keep everything separated, but I want something enclosed so cables don't get snagged on other items in my bag.

    The Grid-It mini-folio case is the right idea, but at 11" x 6.5" it's just too big.

    How small are you needing it? The mini-folio is just slightly larger than a PSP. The square version is about 2 PSPs wide and 1 Tall. They aren't very big.

    Cell-phone USB cable & AC adapter, iPad USB cable & AC adapter, GPS USB cable, USB car charger adapter. Also have a Solio solar charger which has it's own cables as well.

    I was actually able to fit everything in my Maxped pocket organizer under the loops. I currently use a zip-top pouch but you have to dig for what you're looking for. The MaxP opens up flat and lays out everything organized.

    So, you're happy now with the Maxped (EDC?) as your cable organizer, or you're dissatisfied with it for some reason??

    I tried the Maxped only after I made the original post. It's OK, but not ideal. Some of the loops are too big, some are too small. I really wish someone (smarter than me) would come up with a method for adjusting the loop size.

    Still looking for a better idea.
