I used an iPhone cable as I had a broken one, but you could do this with any USB cable.
Date made: March 2013
Approx Cost: £0 - reusing old broken stuff
Approx Time: 0.5 hours
Step 1: Things You Need
4. Rubber/Eraser (optional)
5. USB Storage.
I had a cheap copy of a LaCie USB key. It wasn't very well made and the cover kept splitting, and the internals would move as they weren't stuck down well.
I threw the case out in the end as the internals moved and connectors would touch the metal case. Not clever.
I kept the inside though as it still worked fine.
For this task, you need a similar type of USB storage; a very small flat one! I'm sure there are plenty out there.
Step 2: Take Apart USB Cable
If you can keep a section of the cable surround where the cable joins the connector - we can use this later to cover up some of the glue.
Next separate the components.
The cover should slide off, and then you might have to prise the metal surround apart to get the old connector out. Try not to damage the metal part or the cover in the process though!
