Quick question about what can fit. I am looking to fit 3 small charging wires (6 inches) along with a small iPhone charging block and 2 pairs of iPhone ear buds. Will this fit into a mini or do I need to get the small Q-Kit?

I originally posted that you need a small, but then I tested my charger with and without the UK plug and it will all fit in a mini without the UK plug, but not with. So it will depend on the size of your charger block.

For my mini with the UK plug it is either the charger or the cables, not both. Everything fits in the small with room to spare.

Edited again with new pics because I took the UK plug off my adapter and now it is probably the same as yours if you are in the US or Canada.

It will just fit without the UK plug:

Hope this helps!

Adding to Cristina's great post: the mini only makes for a very minimalistic charging kid. I use a small one.

I am very amused, @Ilkyway , that our Q-Kit colours are reversed. Anyone skimming this and not paying full attention might get a bit confused as to whether the navy one is small or mini... it's both, haha! :-)

Hi @Cristina,

I think the original poster is in the U.S. or Canada, and the (smaller) mini Q-Kit should work fine for the stated contents. I have the World travel adapters, and the UK plug is really big in comparison with the U.S. plug -- which just basically rounds out the corner of the charging block. Most of my mini Q-Kits are from an early batch, that is slightly longer and thinner than current models (I wanted to get Kiwi before the fabric disappeared). In those versions I can fit two charging blocks with the two sets of earbuds along the side, etc . But I also checked this with a Coyote mini Q-Kit that matches current design. (The slightly shorter and wider design lets you carry a bit more in general).

I use the mini size Q-Kit to hold my Jackery Bar (and mini flashlight) in my Side Kick, while earbuds are in between ultra suede folds of a clear organizer wallet. This is a pretty compact configuration.

HTH,
