Are you ready for your trip?
Few hours before your flight, everything seems to be in place inside your bags: travel documents, airline tickets and passports are in; mementos, souvenirs and gifts are carefully wrapped; clothes neatly folded and packed; personal toiletries stored already. But wait! The laptop, smartphone, iPad, mp3 player, battery chargers and other gadgets are yet to be packed. And regrettably the cables and power cords are tangled in a nasty mess, a spectacle most travelers dislike especially if pressed for time before a trip. Personally what I do is try to hurriedly extricate some of the wires but usually end up reluctantly dumping all of them in a bag on my way out.
Keeping it neat and organized
Even expert travelers have experienced going through unfortunate rush-filled moments just before a trip despite being supposedly prepared and all. But the woes of traveling can be lessened when one is organized, not only with the documents, clothes and other stuff, but more so with the travel gadgets.
The Cloop story
A clever idea was born out of the inconvenience in dealing with messy cables, especially when travelling. Thanks to the Vecchione brothers, both engineers, who felt the need to creatively find a solution and came up with Cloop, a smart yet simple cable management system.
They launched the Cloop project on Kickstarter, a crowdfunding platform, and successfully gained financial support, earning positive reviews from backers and customers. Cloop products are now available in Amazon Launchpad and the Cloop online store.
Why Cloop is a smart yet simple cable management system
Cloop was carefully designed with functionality in mind, yet it looks stylish and cool. It is a handy cable keeper made of elastic silicone band which can be stretched and adjusted to snugly wrap cables in various sizes and shapes. Cloop comes in two sizes – the small band is great for usb wires, earbuds, headphones, chargers and other small cables while the large band is ideal for laptop cables, power cords, HDMI cables, and other medium-large cables for small kitchen appliances, office equipment and other household devices.
The ends of the band are embedded with strong neodymium magnets, locking and releasing it is a breeze. The magnets also provide easy attachment to ferromagnetic surfaces. Another great feature is its cable passage in the middle of the band; this keeps the cable from sliding off and keeps it attached even when the magnetic ends are open. Cloop comes in three colors – black, white and red – to easily identify cables, sorting your cables is simpler with the color-coded bands.
Unlike most cable ties and bands, this patent-pending cable keeper is reusable, thus reducing waste, making it economical in the long run. Below is a competitive analysis of different cable keeper solutions compared with Cloop.
The Cloop Base for added functionality
Designed to complement Cloop’s functionality, the Cloop Base acts as a holder and keeper for Cloop bands with its sleek stainless steel material, mirror polished finish and nickel plated brushed finish. The base utilizes a micro suction silicone surface to keep it from being moved around.
Set the Cloop Base on your office desk, working table, countertop, or affix to a wall to organize and keep your cables and make them easily available in one place.
Make your trips easier with Cloop
Outdoor enthusiasts can readily use Cloop to secure their earphones and other gadget cables to their clothes or travel gear while on the go. For tech-savvy travelers who keep on adding the newest gadgets to their trip essentials, it’s smart to keep some Cloop bands ready for use as needed.
These handy adjustable bands are helpful for busy travelers as they keep cables quickly organized with just a snap. Having your gadget cables untangled gives you more space in your luggage and more time for packing up, keeping stress to a minimum during your trip preparation.
