Add the wall charger to the zipper pocket to keep it from falling out. This pocket is good for several things, like earbuds and watch chargers.
Use the band at the top to hold the wrapped cables in place.
If you have iOS devices, you will need to swap out a few of these items to be compatible with those.

How to make an iOS Tech Organizer Kit?
Now that you have all the items together to make the iOS tech organizer kit, here is how to do it.
The screen cleaner wipes are great when you need to clean your computer and phone. Adding them to the front mesh pocket lets you see them at a glance.
If you have an iPad, and it is a newer version, you can add an extra cable for that one as well.
Since the watch has its own cable, you will need to add one of these also.
For the AirPods, you will need to bring a regular iOS charger to charge the case and earbuds. Add the earbuds and case to the zipper pocket.
