Have you ever gotten a new electronic device, only to be annoyed at the standard-issue power cable that it arrived with? Whether a device is primarily battery powered or must be plugged into a wall outlet to be used, the power cables that come with it are essential to its use. Short cables can be difficult for anyone to work with while using a device, and extremely long cables can be a hassle.
Luckily, some companies make custom length power cables. These power cables can be helpful for all kinds of reasons.
When used on a stationary device, they can make cable management much simpler — you won’t have to find ways to tie up a power cable that is much too long, allowing you to hide the cable easily. For mobile devices, custom length power cables allow you to size your power cable to the space you want to use it in. Maybe you want to route it around a room to make use of the least-used outlet, for example.
If you’re interested in learning more about custom power cables, the video on this page shows how some people make them. With the right equipment, they are easy for a DIYer to create at home.
