    Are you asking how many lightning cables I keep around? I have probably a dozen...a bunch around the house (great room, kitchen, bedroom nightstand), in my car, in my briefcase, at work in my office, in my coat pocket. I'm sure there are more.

    I don't know how many I keep. I have numerous electronic items that came with a USB cable of some sort. As for where I keep them, it depends. I mean, my iPhone and Watch cables are always plugged in and atop my night stand, but the others are kept in the night stand drawer. I have one or two in my car.

    1 in my car, 1 in my purse (hooked to my portable battery), 1 for my desktop computer at work, 1 in my bedroom (I have a power outlet with USB connectors right next to my bed), 1 in my office and 1 in the living room (no need for my laptop as there is always a cable nearby).

    I use empty toilet paper rolls covered with craft paper to store all of ours in, and they're right here in my desk drawer so we can keep track of them all. We have dozens of them for many different devices ranging from Android phones, iPhone, iPods, Kindles, tablet, cameras, power packs etc. etc. etc. None by the bed though as we have desk chargers we use. There might be one in the cars glovebox, although I may have brought it in after our last plane trip. Pretty sure my fiance' keeps one or two in his briefcase. The majority of them are here in my desk drawer though.

    Ha! This is a good question. I'd say around 10-12. One in each car, one in living room, bedroom, bathroom (for music during showers), one in my purse, two in my backpack (for iPhone and iPad), a couple spares in the desk drawer, and one wrapped around my external power bank.

    I honestly have no idea. I have so many devices that use USB cables, from my phone, to my tablet to me various peripherals. Maybe conservatively guess at thirty or so?

    Only 2 for me. A short one and a long one. Plus my wife has one.

    The one that came with my phone is in my bedroom, for overnight charging. I have two in the car (a short one connected to the audio system and a longer one so a passenger can charge, if needed), and I have two in my travel bag for when I travel (one is a spare). My wife's car also has two, but I consider them her cables. I think I may have one more kicking around for the off-times I have to connect to iTunes by cable.

    Probably a dozen. With 4 iPhone's and 3 iPod's in the house, you need them. I also keep 5 boxed ones in my desk drawer for when one needs to be replaced. Also have at least one in every one of or vehicles.

    I have one connected to my MBP and one connected to an iPad Air charger. I don't use the cloud for backups and I sync my phones/iPad Mini the old fashioned way.

    I have three Lightning cables, all official Apple. One stays at home in my bedroom, one is in my laptop bag and goes with me when I go out anywhere with my MacBook or MacBook Pro and the other is still in its original box that my iPhone 6s came in. It's good to have a backup or two, just in case. My original Lightning charger, which came with my 5th generation iPod touch, died within a few months because I was a tad bit careless with it.
