While you have a cord at home, maybe a bunch of them, you need to have a dedicated travel cord... otherwise you'll forget it. AND, you need a 6 foot/2 meter one, as where you're staying while you travel will ALWAYS have a plug too far away from where you need it.
Don't squat over by the wrongly placed plug. Use this nice long, strong cable and charge with comfort. And just keep it in your travel gear all the time.
