Oh and a 5V source, like any 5V source I used an old phone charger.
The reasoning behind this is the need to charge my mp3 player and only having a spare phone charger for a phone I no longer use, so I reckoned there was a way based on the fact that I managed the exact opposite
when my phone died.
I wouldn't say I set to work so much as stared at a plug for a while.
I managed not to use a single tool and only two materials... So no list.
You'll have to forgive me on some of the photos, I've had to use my phone for these since it's the only camera with a short enough focal distance I have at the moment, so they're all a little washed out looking...
