    Retractable Cords?

    Is anyone aware whether retractable power cords are available for the Thrive? I'm trying to get away from having to re-coil my power cords after each use, especially when travelling. Something analogous to the USB cords sold at retractablecables.com and elsewhere.

    I'd like the self-coiling convenience, though I suspect given the gauge of the power cords, the device may get bulky.

    My experience with retractable cords, limited though it may be, has been all bad. They get stuck fully extended. They get twisted in the recoil housing and locked up. They break when you exert too much pull when they're locked up and you're out a power cord. I'd rather wrap!

    Not sure what your really looking for. I prefer just to wrap with the Velcro that came with my cords. Properly wrap your laptop power cords

    But here is a little device that could help you out.
