As a New York renter, I have a lengthy list of small apartment woes — from my tiny windowless bathroom to my can’t-fit-a-dining-table-sized living room — but one major ongoing pain point has been cord control. I’m limited on outlets, especially in my bedroom (the wall behind my bed doesn’t have any at all), so I’ve stocked up on a few power strips from my local hardware store. Of course, these hardly dominate much floor or countertop space on their own, but add a handful of chunky chargers and cables to this electrical accessory and it just screams cluttered, especially in already tight, compact areas. That’s where Amazon’s surprisingly stylish, super practical cable management box comes to the rescue.

What Is Amazon’s EasyVibe Cable Management Box?

The EasyVibe cable management box is a minimalist, white vessel designed to (safely!) disguise and organize power strips. Clocking in at 12.2 inches long by 5.3 inches wide by 4.9 inches tall, the rounded storage container includes two side slits for the extension cord to filter through and reach the nearest outlet. Unlike other cable organizers I’ve seen, these handy openings also let you easily access any cord or charger that’s plugged into the power strip from within the box — even with the lid on — while keeping everything else out of sight. In fact, the lid actually features a convenient 8.6-inch groove to perch your phone or watch on while it charges (pictured below). Openings on the bottom portion help provide insulation to prevent the box from overheating, as well.

What Amazon Reviewers Are Saying

4.5/5 Stars

“This makes a hideous power strip and cords look SO much better. I have this by my kids’ gaming station. It easily fits cords for our WIFI mesh tower, Nintendo classic and Nintendo switch, plus their charging station cords. The cut outs in the back are exactly the right size, and the white, oblong box looks pleasant, and has about the same footprint as a box of tissues. Also, I like that this box has a lid that sort of ‘snaps,’ on, so I know the littles won’t mess with the way I have the cords arranged. I absolutely love it, and appreciate the thoughtful design and excellent quality.” —Anna

“This cable management box is great – works as advertised. It makes my bedroom nightstand area look so much better. It holds a power strip easily and is tall/deep enough for my MacBook charging block as well as smaller ones. The openings are good sizes, and the lid is easy to remove when you need to. I’d buy more of these, for sure.” —Sherrin

“Love this product, it keeps my cables organized and away from my kitties.” —Amber

Not only does the EasyVibe cable management box neatly consolidate cords into one compact, stylish container, but it also keeps cables out of reach from children or pets. The simple ribbed design blends in well on any tabletop or corner, too, but note that it’s available in a light green version if you’d prefer more color. Best of all, it’s tall enough to fit especially bulky chargers or adapters, and you can stock up on multiple for different rooms or areas of your home. Because it has such a small overall footprint, though, just make sure you measure your specific power strip before ordering to confirm that it’s compatible.
