They were features in Oprah Magazine’s De-Clutter Your Life! edition, mashable, Maclife, The Wall Street Journal and PCWorld. Enough name dropping I think it’s pretty obvious this product has fans the world over. The cablebox mini is brought to you by the makers of the very popular and gorgeously simple Sanctuary Charging Station.
The Cablebox Mini from BlueLounge® is small enough and sleek enough to fit in almost anywhere, here’s a list of places customers say they like to use their CableBox Mini:
- On top of computer tower
- Near or behind home theater setup
- Beside your laptop on small desk
- Underneath your desk
- On a beside table
- On floor next to their reading lamp
- On the entrance hall table next to the telephone, fax and charging station
- The white mini cablebox blends well into white floor boards making it a great endpoint for cable raceway that meets the outlet.
Cable raceway is really a more complete system to route and conceal any wires in your home and to prevent tripping hazards. Speaker wires, audio cables and Ethernet cables can all be routed through your home without any unsightly nails to be banged into walls.
Cable raceway is easy to install and re-enterable so you can always update your wires without worrying about installing new raceway. They can be painted over too, so that they match your wall color.
Could cable management be any more stylish? It’s helped me create a portable home office. I can store everything in this neat little box, and take my laptop and monitor in only 2 trips. There’s also only 1 power plug to connect and no wires to undo, unwind or re-plug. Right now my office is located in the living room, should my guests arrive for dinner, I need only remove the single plug coming out of the box and take my equipment into my home office. Easy Peasy. All the wires are wrapped neatly and identified.
Here are a few images from my personal home laptop setup:
I’m using the CableBox Mini to store all my peripherals and power plugs that I need to run my mobile laptop setup. So what’s all that in the box?
- 1x Laptop universal charger
- 1x additional monitor power plug
- 1x USB multiport extender and power plug
- 6x USB charger capacity – 4 plugged in currently
- 1x power outlet left empty to plug in my printer
I love my Cablebox Mini. I got it as a gift and now, it’s a vital part of my office. The best part is it’s white so it matches my desk, stationary holders. And pretty soon, if I can save quickly enough for Christmas – my notice boards. Then I’ll move on to some cable raceway for my living room.
