I have both types of cases. But honestly, I rarely even use the cases that comes with them because my cable is either hanging off my usb charger or in a roll up cable organizer so I can see all my cables at once, when not in use. In this day, where we carry a lot of electronics with us.....it's more than likely that we are carrying more than 1 type of cable so I find it more convenient to have it stored together. Don't get me wrong, I do love that Anker includes these cases. I just don't use it for cables but something else.
