Do we need cable organizers?
User Review( votes)
Xiaomi has been on a product producing spree. They want to be the go-to company when it comes to helping the users around their homes and outside. Xiaomi in recent years has strayed away from only manufacturing smartphones to including manufacturing other everyday products. This has reduced its reliance on their smartphones selling.
Xiaomi has conquered the Chinese market and now they are making all sorts of products, that includes toothbrushes and other, day to day items.
In their bid to conquer all problems, Xiaomi has focused even on the small problems and that is the issue of organizing your cables.
Before you buy a cable organizer, it’s important to ask a question. Is it truly important to buy a cable organizer or is it one of those things that are just for show?
The cables made by companies like Apple and other laptop makers are of inferior quality. One of the ways they make money is when your cables wear out and you have to buy a new one.
The fastest way to wear out a cable is to let it fall on the floor repeatedly and you step on it advertently or you run your chair over it. If you want to save $100 of your money, then get a cable organizer.
In this article, we cover the Xiaomi B-Case.

Features of the B-Case
Xiaomi has never skimped on the quality of their products in spite of their affordable prices and the same can be expected for the B-case.
The long-case is made of plastic and the panel on top has a wooden finish. While the holders are made of rubber.

Types of Organizer
Each B-case ships with two types of the organizer – The first is the long-base and the second is an independent circular version.
The Long-base is a classy looking organizer, that is the size of your index finger. This can accommodate two holders and multiple cables. The organizer pad itself sticks to the base with the help of magnets.
They come in two finishes, which is a light-wood and a dark-wood. If you have many cables, this is the organizer to use.
There are three grooves for different sized cables. This can easily hold, your normal Mac cables, your thick USB cable and your flat charging cables.
The long base’ strong adhesive base lets you place it anywhere. On the table, underneath the table and on the wall if required. It’s all a possibility. If you want to keep your table clean, you can conceal it by placing it underneath your table.
The circular base is an independent organizer that is circular and large. The magnets for the circular version are much stronger than the longer base. This is made of rubber and plastic. There are two grooves (large and small) for the circular base that is perfect for the different type of cables.
The circular base is truly multi-functional. You can stick them on the wall and use it for holding keys, apart from cable organizing.
Does it actually work?
I know a lot of people who have bought cheap organizers that are more of a hassle to use and it doesn’t work. Some of the main issues they encounter are the adhesive is too weak, the cables don’t fit.
With the Xiaomi Cable Organizer, you get a variety of cable storing options such as
- Flat cables
- Thick cables
- Normal Cables
- Super-thick cables
The long-base organizer has grooves that can fit 3 sizes, but the circular one has grooves for really thin cables and thick cables.
So depending on your needs, you will need to use a variety of cables.
Considering the cost, the Xiaomi Cable Organizer is available at a throwaway price. This won’t hurt the bank and you can use it for multiple purposes.
Xiaomi has done it again. They have created a product that is beautiful, affordable and functional. Their mantra over the years has been about the above 3 principles. The Xiaomi Magnetic Cable organizer is functional, multi-purpose and also ingenious.
