Here presented instructable will guide you to the step by step instructions to make your own DIY USB Switch.

This USB Switch will take the power from USB and will power on the Relay.

Step 1: Get This Quick!

1. 4 pin connector

2. BAT 85 Diode

3. 100uF Capacitor

4. 1N4148 Diode

5. 5v Relay

6. 2 pin connector

Step 2: Circuit Diagram

Presented here is the circuit Diagram for the USB Switch.

Step 3: Step 1

Picture of Step 1

Place the 4 pin connector for the USB connection on the breadboard.

We will take the voltatge from the first and last pin of the connector.

Step 4: Step-2

Not sure I see a use for this besides turining on some higher current device when you power on a computer

What is the use of this? Better give some circuit with software control to make relay ON and OFF!
