Picture of Adding USB(charging) to iPad VGA adapter
It's my first instructable, and I wanted to share with world what hawe I done this time. Time to time I play with many of things upgrading it's functionality. But with this one I like to share. By the way, sorry if my language is bad, but there, in internet you already are familiar with that, I prefer. So, closer to case, you bought your iPhone4 or iPad, I got my iPhone too, so that's nothing exceptional. You bought VGA adapter, I bought too, and it drains baterry fairly quick. So there it ends, add USB to your VGA adapter, and I wil try to explain how. Sadly I dont hawe all steps with coresponding images, so I will use what I hawe.

What you need:
1. Apple iPad VGA adapter
2. USB cable with one end 4 pin USB A jack connector
3. Soldering iron with small tip
3.1. Hawing flux will help a bit.
3.2. Some tin
4. Knife
5. Pliers?
6. wirecutter

Step 1: Opening 30pin connector

Somehow you need to remove inner plastic bezel from 30pin connector side. its glued there, so with some screvdriver, knife or somthing else help you need to open it. If you dont broke it while opening, than when you end it will look as new.

This might be an odd question but do you plan on selling that or want to make any I'm willing to pay for it
