I bought this in hopes of keeping together all my chargers that were haphazardly thrown about my room, taking up precious space in my drawers and making my ultra-small bedroom look disheveled. When I received this it was smaller than I expected (but that's my own fault - I'm bad with visualizing measurements). However, it is PERFECT for my needs! I easily fit 5-6 Apple chargers, two different digital camera chargers, my Kindle charger, and a portable outlet extender, with tons of room to spare. It also feels very sturdy, so I don't fear my things will be crushed while traveling. It makes packing so easy - no worrying you've left a certain cord at home, since you can just grab and go! Now instead of having a bunch of chargers lying around, I have one cute little case that looks adorable AND keeps everything neatly out of sight and together! This really is such a must-have for any tech lover who wants a simple, portable, stylish storage option in her in life!

Organization has arrived
I bought some of these for gifts at Christmas, as well as, one for myself. I loaded it up with chargers, cables, iPods, ear buds, Mifi device and a reading light. Yes the elastic is snug but that keeps your items in place when you zip it closed and turn it sideways. I do a lot of air travel and when I go through security, the TSA have commented how organized the electronic cables are and visible inside of my backpack. Not to mention, when I reach in my backpack at 10,000 feet, I grab the handles and pull everything out in one shot. Excellent and definitely on the list of gifts for this year!!!

Just right for me.
I was given this bag for Chirstmas, it is in the Viva La Vera pattern. It holds my laptop cords/battery pack, cordless mouse, 2 packs of AAA battery's ( 8 total) ear buds with VB case and headphones, I have a micro cloth, and additional SIM cards as well as a couple memory cards. I still have room , but for the life of me I just can't think of anything else I need.

Not great for tech, can be used for cosmetics
I bought this with the intention of using it as a tech organizer. (I bought it on sale and I don't think it is worth the full retail price IMHO). However, when I got it in the mail I found that some of the pockets as currently designed are NOT FUNCTIONAL. For example, the medium and large sized mesh pockets: their elastic is too tight to expand easily and provide easy access to your stuff. I guess the tiny one is fine for SD cards.
The ID window seems pretty useless and also doesn't have a space for your thumb to help slide a card out. I currently have nothing in there.
The elastic for cords seems like it could work well for a PC laptop adaptor. For a Macbook adaptor, it wouldn't fit that shape.
I started using it as a cosmetics organizer for my less-frequently-used makeup. I put my eyeliners, eye brushes, and mascaras in one medium-sized mesh compartment, and my lip liners, brushes, & lipsticks in the adjacent compartment. I put my palettes flat on the other side and my pencil sharpener in the tiny mesh pocket. Now when I need to use this makeup, I open the case and hold it open on my dresser or in my left hand like a binder.
I would encourage VB to redesign the pockets and keep this item but right now I use it as a binder-style cosmetics case because I don't like all my makeup jumbled together in a wide bag.

This tech organizer is great! It holds my computer power cord with charger in the large mesh pocket on the right. I rolled up and put the small cord in first, then rolled the other cord and laid it with charger, side by side, and slid them in. I also managed to get my little camera cord in with it. I use the little mesh pocket above that one for batteries, flash drives, etc. And I still have enough room to put another charger and/or cord in the area on top of the ID Holder and Small Mesh Pocket, which I'll use for my Kindle charger and cord.
The bag is beautifully quilted with hard sides (of cardboard, I think?) and is made really well. I got the Folkloric pattern and it is so pretty. Perfect for a girly girl who likes pink!
Also, I could fit my NookCOLOR in the large pocket on the right. It is a snug fit, but it does fit. So this could be used as an e-reader or small tablet case with plenty of room left over for other things.
I'm ordering a few more for gifts and an extra for me. This bag just keeps everything in its place, easy to see, easy to take out, and I can throw it in my luggage without having to hunt down cords. It could be used for many other little necessities as well.

I LOVE my Tech Organizer
I'll bet you can find other uses of it, too!! : )
I plan on getting another one and using it for my canister-like "minerals" cosmetic containers.
What I *don't* love is that it's being discontinued!!

Mini diaper bag
I use this as a mini diaper bag. My 1 yr old carries it herself as her 'purse'. It will fit 2 diapers folded, small portable diaper wipes, and a tube of creme. I still have extra room! It also fits into the bookbag (which I use as a purse) perfectly. I need a couple more of these because it is just so awesome!

Great tech accessory but could've been roomier
I would definitely recommend this tech case. I can store most but not all of my smaller chargers in it. In one of the twin compartments, I have my bluetooth earpiece, its charger, and my camera battery charger which doesn't completely fit inside. In the other compartment are chargers for our Nuvi and handheld GPSs. The smallest compartment holds my earbuds, or it could hold SD cards, flashdrives, or small batteries but not much more. The largest compartment holds two ereader chargers, for Kindle 2 and Kindle Fire. My phone charger fits in one elastic loop, and another small AC charger under the other. There's no room left for my I-pod charger, much less my netbook charger. A laptop charger would take up most of the space just by itself, so it's not suited, and probably wasn't intended, for computer chargers. However, the case is a much better solution than having all our smaller chargers tangled in a desk drawer! It will also be great to use when traveling to hold the smaller chargers I take along.
Alternatively, it could be used as a device and charger case. I can just barely squeeze my Kindle Fire into the largest compartment. I would be afraid AC prongs in the other compartments might scratch it, though, so I prefer my ereader sleeve for carrying it. But it could be used that way.
It's a good, compact size and holds a lot, but the inside could have so easily been made a little roomier. The elastic on the mesh compartments doesn't stretch much, and the space for the ID window would be much better utilized as another mesh pocket, which would be the perfect size for a camera battery pack charger. A business card could easily be slipped into one of the mesh compartments for ID. Minor flaws but they reduce its capacity. I'm very pleased with it otherwise and might order another for a gift.
I'm surprised this item is being discontinued but maybe a new style will be introduced. If it had stretchier elastic on the mesh pockets so they could hold a little more, and if it utilized the wasted space for the ID window, it would certainly merit 5 stars. We're gadget heavy so this may be perfect for most people!
