    Can't say how it is at your house, but in my house there are several types
    of cables used to charge different devices, or connect them to the computer.
    Problem is they all look the same, except for the end that connects
    to it's applicable device. Grabbed what I thought was my olympus cable
    and ended up with my kids cell phone cable. How it got in the camera case
    is beyond my ability to control. I'm going to add color matched zip ties
    to my cables, so I can keep track of what goes with what.
    How do ya'll deal with the black spaghetti?

    I've got happy cables...maybe too happy. ( I think they're breeding)
    The problem is they all look alike, to make things worse,
                      this is just one of the spaghetti piles.

                                              ;D

    Brett I take and write on a small piece of paper then use clear tape to tag all the cables. GPS for boat, GPS for car, Laptop, Nikon D80, Olympus Tough 8000, Cam Corder, Ipod, Iphone, and a few others!! I know just what your talking about!!! it seems harder to keep up with the seperate cables than anything else!!!

    I use the wife's fingernail polish and put a dab on the cable end and a dab on the item it fits.
