Is there a name / specific type for flat-jacketed wires which come tied on consumer product cables (eg. earphone cables, power cables) ? I always collect them from the new products I buy, but I wish to buy some in a volume.
I find it the most handy thing (rather than nylon zip ties) to temporarily tie small cables, for storage, and tidying up behind the AV sets.
I see they are basically just some thicker wires, but don't think some wires I'd grab from a cat5 cable would stand against that amount of twisting.
