DIY charging station

A quick note on how I made a charging station out of a drying rack.

Like everybody, I have many many things that want to be charged. I also have a mess of many spare cables.

I’d had enough of this and had an idea.   I bought a multi-usb charger from Amazon (this one)  and a simple, wooden drying rack(this one).

I built the rack,  and popped the things I wanted to charge in with cables.

I worked out the length the cables should be and taped each (all spares) to the bottom of the rack (The rack also needed reinforcement, but yours might not).

I was left with lots of cables of different sizes.

I used the ‘toilet roll trick’ to make the cables the same length.

I then added the adapter….Screen Shot 2017-01-16 at 11.15.49

and slid the new station into the space for it.  Volia. Screen Shot 2017-01-16 at 11.16.54
