4 A reed switch (heart of this circuit)
5 A magnet (powerful enough to activate the switch)
6 soldering iron
7 solder
8 iron nails(optional)
9 Tape

Step 2: The Circuit

The circuit works when the reed switch connects the two ends and storage device activates(pen drive in my case)

Step 3: Cut the Usb Cable

Cut the cable n strip the both ends

Step 4: Solder the Cables

Solder all the cable except the red one. Solder the red cable with having reed switch in the centre. It will work as our sensor for turning the device on and off

Step 5: Put the Things in the Box
