For the first time since my second kid (possibly since my first kid, but I'm less sure of that) was born, I'm contemplating getting on a plane without checking a bag, which means the incentive to lightweight has really returned to my life -- it was in abeyance because extra heads give extra baggage allowance and rolling bags and luggage carts mean I can actually get away with bringing more luggage. But if it's all going on my back, things change.
There have been a bunch of components to this (and so far, I'm only attempting this for a short, warm season trip so I don't have to deal with clothing bulk), one of which involved the chargers. As I was looking for a full set of spare charging cords and bases, so I wouldn't _forget_ to bring the chargers (I also seem to forget something), it occurred to me I could fix this with product. Because, you know, gadget budget = more money than sense.
Short lightning cords (white in the picture):
5 port charging base:
3 cords, of which I only needed 2 so not quite as economical as it would be if I needed all 3:
And a picture (the stray lightning connector would attach to the phone that I used to take the picture):
