USB Grass Charging Station





Introduction: USB Grass Charging Station

About: Primarily a musician, but i morph into a crazy inventor in my free time. Also I'm not actually a cat.. :)

One day, i've see that on internet: .It is a charging valet for electronic stuff.
But 30$ is really not cheap for that. Now, i will show how to do it from yourself for less than 3$.

Step 1: What You Will Need

You will need those things to make it:
- sinthetic grass
- usb port
- a container (the one you want)

Step 2: Part 1

First pass the usb into a hole of the container

Step 3: Part 2

Then, just put the sinthetic grass over it.

Step 4: Well Done!

Now your electronic stuff is ready to charge and you have save 27$ for it. Enjoy it!
Oh, and thanks voting me for the usb contest!

Step 5: Varient: the Multiple Branch Charger

This varient as multiple branch for charging multiple thing at the same time.
You need the same stuff for doig it except that the container is replaced by a strawberry jar and, of course more usb plugs.

    At my local dollar store. That's it really xD

    Thats a funny invention but a very useful one.

    What about the underside then?

    There is no way that it can scratch it, trust me

    Well, it depend what kind of synthetic lawn you use, but the plastic one i used in that instructables won't

    Ah good then you'll be happy to know that I ant YOU to make a "ipad grass pad"

    im actually working on an other charging station, maybe it will be finished in one month...
    but don't ask to know what is it...

    Yes "want", my w key is sticky when i least expect it.

    oh i see secret.......

    hahahahaha combat arms!!!! "elite noob"

    use a wildcharger pad under the grass! its easier to load and you can load a few devices

    Does anyone know where to buy small amounts of synthetic grass everywhere I've seen has like a 240ft minumum.

    You could try asking for a small sample if it's on a roll.

    Yajbuilder: this is just a makeup to hide cables. I did that cause a thing that work as same cost 30$

    I thought this was one of those electricity through air concepts- what did I miss? I mean, it looks great and all, but is this really what makes the organic cheese?

    Did you have the idea beforehand? It might be simple but thinking of it and showing people it finished makes a difference.
