I use to have to carry entirely too many different cords for the various devices that I needed to charge. The cord has negated my need for this because the end has all the diffferent ones that I need. I love that I can now only carry one cord and not have to worry about if I have the ability to charge whatever I need. It is also a good length and so I don't worry about it not being long enough. The individual cords after the split are each long enough that the various devices aren't on top of each other while charging too. It works great for my various charging needs. I just wish I had been able to get one sooner.
