Quick and easy mod to a $4 battery powered latte foamer for your office, so that you can run it off of your computer's USB port.
You love your coffee in the office, and some time you just can't run out to get one, so you brew your own.
But you can't easily get those nice lovely latte foam tops going. You could purchase expensive machines, but ... well, they are expensive. You can get cheap-oh battery operated ones, but you always are running out of battery juice, and they are not that powerful either.
So purchase one of those non-expensive ones, and follow these steps to give it USB power and more torque.
Tools you will need:
- cheap foamer
- a USB cable that won't be missed
- pliers and/or sharp knife
- soldering gun
You can get away without soldering if you want to, just twist-tie your wires. Messier, but functional.
Step 1: First Step.
First, you will need to cut the end of the Usb wire that otherwise would connect your external device to you computer.
