My iPod Touch was dying and I didn't want to turn my laptop on just to charge it. But then I thought of an old laptop charger I had that was still good, so I got to work. And so I have hacked together an USB charger.

Step 1: List of things you need

You need:
wire cutters
wire strippers
switch
three alligator test leads
USB car charger
Old laptop charger: 20V max, 1.5A is reasonable
DMM ( optional)
Cute - but why bother? Replacement USB AC chargers are about $1 - brand new (at my local Dollar Store). <br>
I was using what I already had on me. Plus, going to go buy one would defeat the purpose of not using my laptop - it would have been too easy.
