“Delivered:” is a series in which we look at crowdfunded ideas that have successfully shipped to their supporters. We dive into the final product, after its long journey from concept to fulfillment.
Anytime I put cords in a bag, they go in separated and always come out tangled. This is apparently so common that a paper has even been written on the matter. Seeing and experiencing this problem, the creators of the Side Winder Kickstarter decided to fix this once and for all, for MacBook chargers.
The Side Winder is well built and designed. It's so simple yet effective, that it feels as if it was designed by Apple. It can handle almost any MacBook charger, and solves the problem with having those long charger cables laying around your bag or on a table. It also comes with adapter pieces so that as your MacBook and their chargers change over time, you can use your Side Winder to manage your new cables too.
To use the Side Winder, find the approperiate adapter for the power adapter size. Place the power adapter in the device, close and twist. The power adapter and cable are now organized neatly within the Side Winder. When you need to use the power cable, just pull out the length you need and you're ready to go. You're going to want to take this anywhere you take your MacBook from now on.
If you own a MacBook, save yourself the trouble of tangled cords and go buy a Side Winder. You'll be glad you did.
