Rochester, N.Y. – Skooba Design has introduced a downsized
version of its Cable Stable accessory organizer.
The new Cable Stable Mini is a smaller version of Skooba’s
model. It is a folio-style case with a dozen interior storage spaces,
including neoprene pockets, hold-down straps and elastic loops designed to
carry a basic assortment of power cords, adapters and other small accessories.
When loaded, it zips shut into a compact 9-inch by 5.5-inch by
1.5-inch book form factor. It weighs 5.6 ounces empty.
One side of the interior is a grid of elastic hold-down strips.
The strips float freely under reinforced retention strips, so they can stretch
and contract to accommodate cords, adapters and other accessories. On the other
side are stretchy neoprene pockets for a phone, camera, or other small device,
pen, and business or travel cards. Wasting no space, the center spine adds
loops for batteries or USB thumb drives. The outside of the case has a carrying
handle, along with a full-length zipper pocket.
“The Cable Stable offers a versatile and efficient alternative to
a snake pit in the bottom of a laptop bag, or items stuffed haphazardly into
random pockets or pouches,” a company spokeswoman said, adding that the larger
Cable Stable DLX has been one of its best-selling Skooba products for years, and
it developed the new version in response to requests for a smaller,
The Cable Stable Mini is available now at a suggested retail
price of $29.95, $10 less than the larger DLX version. Both are made of
lightweight, water-repellant nylon twill.
