AmazonBasics Electronics Travel Case

AmazonCase-1.jpgI've been using this simple but well designed electronics case for 5 months now. I travel a lot, usually 2 - 3 weeks a month. I also work in IT, so you can imagine all the gadgets I have to carry with me. This case makes the hassle of travelling with electronics a dream! In the rigid plastic case I safely store my ipod, cellular modem, portable router, backup Lithium Polymer charger, voice recorder, and all of the cables for them and other devices I have on me. They all stay together in a nice neat package. So I never lose them, or forget one when I go on the road.
AmazonBasics Universal Travel Case for Small Electronics and Accessories (cameras; mobile phones; GPS units) (Black)-1.jpeg To be honest, I had never used anything even remotely like this before I found the one from AmazonBasics. None of my other packing solutions come close, and after looking around for a month I still can't find anything that compares to it. Normally all of my devices have a case of their own, which I've tried to use, but that means there are 5 separate cases with cables, etc and I always end up misplacing something. This case allows me to keep everything I need in one neat little case, and for $14, a better tool is hard to come by! --Jeremy Pavleck AmazonBasics Electronics Travel Case $14 Don't forget to comment over at Cool Tools.

  1. This would simply give me the opportunity to lose everything at once, rather than one item at a time.

  2. I use a Pelican case with foam molds. More durable, big enough to also hold my laptop, lockable, and damn near indestructible.

  3. Weirdly, I’m seeing a price of $14.40-odd cents from, but just bought one in the UK for £4.99, or about US $8.00 from — which includes 20% sales tax!

      1. Payback for all the 1 dollar = 1 euro price conversion we get when we buy US-branded electronics. ;-)

      2. Anon: If that $6 extra on carry cases is what makes cars, electronics, food and booze significantly cheaper in the US, I’ll take it!

  4. I have used one of these as one of two of my tech toolkit bags that I keep in my backpack for work (the other being a normal little fold-able tool case that is a similar form factor to this one).

    It fits my network tester, power supply tester, ethernet cutter/stripper, ethernet crimper, along with having a lot of free space for some spare ethernet ends to float around. Plus in the zipper flap that holds down the ethernet crimper, I keep some cable ties and a 2gb emergency USB boot drive.

    Pretty nice for the 9$ I paid for it, as I keeps all of this stuff from floating around in my backpack.

  5. I use a soft-sided lunch box. It’s padded, compartmentalized, has handy mesh pockets for a small amount of documentation, plus an optional carry strap. I use one for “remote office” gear, and one for “radio” gear (I’m a ham). $5 each at the local grocery store.

  6. Have this case, really is great for carrying extra cables, adapters, gadgets, chargers and such.

    Seems a bit strange at first, what exactly you put in which compartment, but after just a bit of trial and error I found comfortable configuration for my many sizes and shapes of various gadgets.

    Would buy again. Quite pleasantly surprised at the high quality of this 1st party Amazon item, I overfill this thing and it doesn’t get babied around in my bag either, holding up perfectly.

  7. would be great if reviewer would cover the differences between this product and putting all this kit in the original equipment cases that it apparently comes with and then throwing all of those little cases into a single-pocket vanilla case

  8. Yay! Now I can have ONE electronics carryon that holds my cellphone, DS, video camera, and iPod instead of trying to dig them all out of my cavernous bike bag whenever I travel.

  9. I get such a geeky thrill when Charles Stross posts. It takes all of my grown up reserve not to buy something he bought just because he bought it. Le sigh!
