So I've been reading Lifehacker.com and found some really nice DIY charging stations. I really liked the Ikea box versions, but I decided to change a few things.

These were bluesman and PROD's instructables on making a charging station without switches or with individual switches:

https://www.instructables.com/id/IKEA-Power-Charging-Box-with-individual-switches/?ALLSTEPS (Ikea charging box with individual swtiches)

I was really excited about this and decided to make my own version. First of all, I like black, so it had to be a black box and I wanted one general powerswitch. I also wanted to make a few ventilation holes in the back.

I used the following materials:

Ikea Ladis (40x30 box, 70 eurocents)
Ikea Ladis (40 lid, 30 eurocents)
Ikea Koppla (power strip with general switch, you get 2 of them for 4,99 euros)
A few tie-wraps.

Drill, different sizes (depends on the tie-wraps and chords you're using)
Vile (round)

Thanks to bluesman and PROD for their nice instructables!

Step 1: Materials

Materials used:

Black box (Ikea Ladis) 40x30

Black lid (Ikea Ladis)

Power stip

This powerstrip would fit entirely into the box, but I decided to keep the part with the switch on the outside so I can easily flip it. The side with he switch is to the wall anyways!
very nice.. i did a chargebox based on yours. It can be found here: <a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/Charge_box/">https://www.instructables.com/id/Charge_box/</a><br/>
