Introduction: Lego Retractable Charging Station

Finish Product: LEGO Retractable Charging Station

A 4-Port 40W 8A USB charging station made out of Lego pieces.
This charging station consists of 2x micro USB and 2x Lightning connections.
This charging station neatly keeps all the excess cables stored inside the lego housing.
In the photo, you can see it is charging 2 devices, (1x Galaxy Tab and 1 Ipad).

I have a lot of devices in the house that need charging and I have wires dangling around my desk space desk and living room table. Something like this could retail for $200+ and it does not come with the type of wires you would need. I hope this design would be as helpful to you as it is helping me keep my charging wires neat.
