Ever had a situation where

1) You come home and all your devices are running out of juice?

You gotta charge them all but you only have THAT many USB ports on your PC, and you need them freed up for other purpose.

2) You have sooo many cables connected to your power plugs, and your desktop is in a mess with all the USB cables and devices.


I have came across similar ready made products in the market but they are very expensive (about 89.95USD). My setup costs only 20 Singapore Dollars =)

The good thing about my DIY project is, I will be reusing my USB cables that came with my devices, and I can charge anything that comes with its own USB cable.

Step 1: Materials that you need

You will need

1 x plastic tupperware box
1 x pen knife
1 x scissors
1 x USB Hub with external power supply
1 x non-slip mat
1 x power drill
