Introduction: How to Build a 5 Port Charging Station

Picture of How to Build a 5 Port Charging Station

I wanted to try and build a charging station to accommodated all my Devices without using all my plug sockets in the house and without all our devices lying around everywhere so I came up with this design. I think every home could do with one of these.

Step 1:

I cut out my shapes from scrap wood, I made them from large to small to suit all my devices. This was my first design, the excess cables were suppuse to be wrapped around the center supports but I found it was still very messy and my phone and Ipad did not sit on there very well, so I decided to make a box stand that did not work out very good either.

Step 2:

So I combined the two and came up with a great stand that looked good and kept all my Devices tidy while they were charging. And the best thing was it only uses one plug in the house.

Step 3: Inside View

This is what the inside of the box looks like. The charging box was glued in the box. I added the rubber clips to keep the cables tidy on the top, which you can label if you need too.

Step 4: Phone Charging Station

I have been meaning to make one of these for our motor home, but haven't got around to it as of yet. This one looks like it may be close to the design I had in my head but I am making mine with a 12V to 5V step down transformer and an old 10 USB port hub that I plan to rewire to use the extra amperage I can put out with the step down device.

Sounds good, mine is only a 5 port and do find that it is not very often that there is more than 4 devices being charge at one time. My first one was made with the a usb hub but found it did not have the power to charge the devices. The travel charger was the only one that worked for me.

I wish this was on the market...I'd buy one immediately! (I suffer from NEO) (Not Enough Outlets)! lol. Attractive and practical! Good work!

Thanks, I had the same problem, and had devices lying around everywhere, so this was great.
