Use a curve, add one by doing Shift + A then Curve > Bezier. Place and orient the controll points of your cable, to deform it and add gravity select both points and press W > Subdivide. From V menu set the intermediate cuts to Automatic to keep a smooth curve, then position it. If you add multiple cuts spread them to get some space to keep a smooth line.

To make that curve have some volume set the Fill mode to Full. In the Geometry rollout under the "Bevel" adjust the Depth for the width of the cable and the resolution for the amount of sides.

  • $\begingroup$ Also adding some details is possible by using Bevel object which should be another curve and which can have desired form of the cable. $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak Feb 8 '17 at 13:32
  • $\begingroup$ Yes and also this allows to edit the radius of the cables of all at once. $\endgroup$ – Danyl Bekhoucha Feb 11 '17 at 12:42
