Keep Your Apple Accessories Tidy in a Japanese Bento Box

In an effort to easily contain the multiple Apple cords and accessories you have for each device, Function 101 has launched a campaign to create the “Bento Stack” — a container system that can keep all your Apple accessories organized in one place. The top compartment holds up to five lightning cables and/or a set of AirPods, while its top lid can be used as a holder for the Apple Pencil. The bottom lid is made to hold two watchbands of different possible sizes and thicknesses, whereas the compartment is made to fit MacBook chargers of all sorts, such as the MacBook Pro 15-inch adapter or the Type-C dongle. Made with durable, lightweight plastic, and coming with its own silicone elastic strap, you can purchase the Bento Stack in Silver, Rose Gold, or Space Gray for $38 USD each this coming December.
