If you have old/used car charger do not throw it at garbage. You may make some DIY project like I did..
First Thing that you must open the car charger.. and cut the cable to small board, I used different picture of car charger to make it, cause i bought it just for almost  10.000 Rupiah (1 USD) for  4 Item.

Step 2: Solder the Cable

After you opened, solder it to Relay Button which is I show u bellow. make sure you have the good soldering.

Step 3: Put the relay into casing

Try to put the relay button into car charger casing to have good handle when you pressed it. If you have a problem with the diameter relay button try to use hot iron to blend some of the plastic.. I did it... :)

Ooohhh.. sorry for ugly nails... do not fokus on it...

Step 4: Solder to another plug end
