Stocking stuffer review: Black Box Deluxe retractable Cable Kit

Need some gift giving inspiration for a frequent traveler? Next week, we’ll be featuring our yearly gift guides, but today we’ll give you a sneak peek at one product that won’t disappoint any frequent flier.

The Black Box deluxe retractable cable kit combines six different travel accessories in a convenient zippered case. Inside the case, you’ll find the following:

  • Retractable optical mouse
  • Retractable Ethernet cable
  • Retractable laptop power cord
  • USB LED keyboard light
  • Retractable USB cable
  • Retractable headphones

The set weighs just under one pound, and can really reduce the usual mess of cables in a carry-on bag. The deluxe retractable cable kit retails for $38.95 and can be ordered directly from Black Box. If you only want certain parts of the kit, you can also chose to pick the cables you need. As can be expected from Black Box, the quality of all the parts is excellent.
