I absolutely love my powercurl wrap for my macbook.
Nicole Waldron
It makes it a cinch to unravel my MacBook's power cord and keeps it nice and flat in my laptop bag without taking up a lot of space.

It keeps the power cable wrapped up neatly while in my bag.

This from QUIRKY'S Website: (EDIT: still current Jan 2012)
[...]

PowerCurl sizes match up with the default adapters for following MacBook models:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
45W = MacBook Air
60W = MacBook, 13-inch MacBook Pro
85W = 15- and 17-inch MacBook Pro
85W long = older generation 15- and 17-inch MacBook Pro (rectangular)
----------------------------------------------------------------------

EDITED: The info above was current in 2010. As Amanda commented, you need to "order the powercurl that matches the charger you have."

Color Name: BlueSize Name: 60 Watts
The Apple power adapter has two design flaws: an unruly extension cord and overheating. The PowerCurl solves both problems. It's a must-have for any MacBook owner.

Upon unwrapping the PowerCurl, I noticed how light and flexible it is. When I put it on the adapter, my first thought was that it was bulky. However, it's really no more bulky than the adapter w/ both cords wrapped around it. Finding a place for it in a laptop bag shouldn't be a problem. And it comes with a little clip to attach the end of the extension cord to itself, similar to the one that Apple puts on the end of the MagSafe cord.

Besides keeping both cords wound up when the adapter isn't in use, the PowerCurl keeps the adapter cooler when it is in use. It covers a minimal amount of the adapter and, when stood up vertically on its side, it allows for better airflow along all surfaces.

Edit: When ordering, be sure to select the correct size. It's good to have your power adapter handy to make sure you get the right one (45W, 60W, 85W, 85W long).

The PowerCurl is sold in dark charcoal gray plus 4 tropical colors: orange, lime green, hot pink & baby blue (which looks aqua in person). It would be nice if it also came in white and in a less summery color, like red or cobalt blue. (Color offerings may change over time.)

Other than the color selection, I've got no complaints. I would certainly buy it again.

Edit: I should add that though I thought the S&H charges were rather high for something so small and light, it did arrive very quickly.

I am actually very happy with this purchase. It is a really practical accessory that does exactly what it is supposed to do. The range of colors should fit almost every customer out there. The fact that the accessory is slightly concave on both sides does an excellent job of keeping the adaptor off the ground and helps dissipate the heat better. One thing that I do to enhance this cooling even more is to stand it up vertically on one of its sides, thereby doubling the surface area exposed to the air.

My only complaint is in regards to the clip that they provide for keeping the power cord in place. I've found that the plastic used in it is almost too soft for the job, and the clip overall seems too small for the circumference of the thicker power cord. It is extremely difficult to get the cord to lock in place with this clip as the "teeth" would rather collapse into each other rather than expand and "bite" down on the cord. And this morning when I went to wrap up my cables, it would appear that the clip has fallen off somewhere on the floor in my living room and I didn't have time to go hunt it down.

Improve the clip that comes with this product and get five stars!!!

I hate to be the lone dissenter, but I am not at all satisfied with this. It looked quite bulky to me in the pictures, but based on the reviews here that I read, I took the plunge anyway, thinking that I was probably not looking at it in the right prospective. And when I opened up the box, my first impression was that this thing was not going to save me any space in my backpack; it's huge!. After one day of squeezing this into my pack, and dragging it out (By the way, it's like rubber and drags every cable and loose paper along with it), it was just too much of a pain to work with. The problem is that it doesn't save any room or add any real convenience, which was the whole point.
It would be a whole lot more convenient if someone would just design a shorter version of the Apple AC power cord. That's really the bulky part of the whole arrangement. Maybe something 1 to 1/12 feet long. I may just cut mine down and be done with it.

There is nothing fancy to this product, as it should be. It manages the cord and is made of a flexible and supple plastic. It can be squished to be within a centimeter of the thickness of the adapter itself (say in a bag pocket) and springs back to its original shape when taken back out (which eases the wrapping up of the cord, and puts more air around the adapter).

** UPDATE 6/27/2014 **
Wrapping the cord around this caused the connection of the AC adapter cord attachment to tear at the joint. I'm talking about the cord that one can slide on and off the adapter (the big white square), and exchange for a AC plug (sans extension cord) instead. This was an original Apple adapter cord. But you cannot detach the cord from the adapter when the adapter is in the PowerCurl. I'm not sure if the original cord joint was faulty, but to be safe I've taken my adapter out of the PowerCurl to reduce the wear and tear on the joint -- so I reduced my rating from 5 to 3 stars to reflect that this product might generally cause damage to the AC adapter cord, but I'm not sure it does.
