"After cords falling on the floor and stepping on the ends for months I came across these and they’ve been perfect!” wrote a rave reviewer. "I stuck them to the side of my nightstand and no more bent charging cables or sore feet! The cords slide through with minimal effort but hold in place when you’re not trying to move them."
“Tired of rooting around for your charger?” asked a satisfied customer. “These are for you! Stick on the back of a table, under a nightstand, on a wall and put your charging cable in it. Now you can find it easily and quickly EVERY SINGLE TIME! Highly recommend.”
“I LOVE THESE!!!” an enthusiastic shopper wrote. “Where have these been all my electronic life? I have mine on the nightstand, as I have multiple wires for multiple objects. Due to my back injury, I am in bed a lot, but this really helps with phone wires, laptop wires, etc.”
“Untangle your life,” commanded one customer. “These little cord holders are great. Small enough to be unobtrusive, but robust enough to handle all your charging cables, including HDMI cables.”

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's party is returning to power in the country's richest state, Maharashtra, giving it a fillip ahead of the 2024 national election after an unlikely ruling alliance of parties crumbled after more than two years. Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party will now form the government in Mumbai's home state along with a faction of the regional Shiv Sena party, which surprised analysts by tying up with ideologically opposed parties such as Congress after the 2019 state election to oust the BJP. Both the BJP and the Shiv Sena draw their support mainly from the majority Hindu community.
