Ever order a bento box in a Japanese restaurant, with sushi and other foods in separate little compartments? The Function 101 BentoStack is like that for Apple accessories you want to store neatly or carry around with you. And one version includes a built-in power bank for charging.

“BentoStack is a compact Apple accessory organizer for travel and work space organization,” said Function 101. “Four stackable layers keep all your Apple accessories neatly organized and easily accessible.”

The latest BentoStack features upgraded compartment lids:

  • New top lid: Apple iPhone Flip Stand
  • Top compartment: Charging cables and AirPods
  • New bottom lid: Two Apple watch bands and Apple Pencil
  • Bottom compartment: Power bricks and wall chargers

Two sizes of silicone bands come with the organizer to keep the compartments together. You get a large one for the complete BentoStack and a small one when using half the stack.

The standard version accommodates Apple’s wall plugs found in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Japan, China and Thailand.

Dimensions are 7.4in x 3.4in x 3.4in. The stack comes in black, gray, navy, silver and purple colors.

Function101 Button Remote for Apple TV

If you tend to misplace your Apple TV remote — or if you just don’t like how tiny it is compared to most remotes — the Function101 Button Remote might be for you.

Function101 designed the Button Remote for ease of use. It works with most TVs and home-theater systems. Its old-school look and feel, with all controls front and center on the device, helps users navigate quickly.

The remote is easier to hold and use than either of Apple’s Siri Remotes. As Cult of Mac’s review said, “Thanks to its familiar design, it’s perhaps the easiest way to use your Apple TV.”

Setup is easy thanks to infrared technology. It allows the remote to synchronize to your TV in seconds. As long as your TV is relatively nearby and in your line of sight,  you should have no problem.

You should note that Button Remote lacks voice recognition, so you can’t talk to Siri. For people who find the voice assistant unreliable, that won’t be a problem. You will, however, have all the buttons you need. And unlike Siri, buttons never fail.

Function101 Cable Blocks are a cable-management system made up of four premium silicone blocks. They keep your cables organized and off the floor.

You can position the blocks anywhere along your cable and in your workspace. Unlike other cable stays, they don’t use adhesives. Instead, they’re weighted to help keep your cables in place.

The blocks are adaptable to different situations. Heavier cables or slick surface may require added stability. Each cable block has imbedded magnets so you can connect a second block for extra security when needed.

You can connect multiple blocks together to keep all your cables neatly aligned on your workspace. Simply move the connected blocks to the edge of your desk for a clean and organized workspace.

Cable Blocks are available in navy blue, gray, orange, pink, and light blue colors.
