We loved this iPhone hack by Brendan Dawes so much we thought we should share it with Instructables :)

It works great for other phones too, I also did one for an old Nokia and a Sony Ericsson, and why not ?! :) 

Step 1: What do you need...

Picture of What do you need...
your phone

the phone charger



cling film

some soapy water

If you are not familiar with sugru, you can find out more on our website - www.sugru.com

Good, but I doubt this will work on the Australian chargers.

cheers Bob, what do Australian chargers look like ?

ah yes, the older version of the Apple USB plug, I still think this is much more beautiful than what they make now. Hmmmm, it is a bit of a challenge, have you any ideas how it could work on this plug?
what about modding another usb charger
yes i do put the sugru on the side of the adapter and it should work then;)

Uhm. If you put ShooGoo or whatev in a snapLock bag, will it still harden?

Hello Mr.Pug, sugru is packaged in a special moisture barrier foil, sugru will cure in a zip lock bag.
Ooh, Thank you.

Hey there guys, Sugru is some kick butt rubber goo. I have some that I just received from ordering online. It got to me here (in the Midwest U.S.) super quick and it's about the best stuff out there. Nothing quite like it. Man, I wish you guys could get a distribution setup here in the U.S. I could see this stuff in every hardware store.

Nice - the giant UK plugs look to be really well suited for this hack.
Our plugs aren't "giant", yours are just tiny!
Yes, I spent 5 yrs in the UK and never had a plug fall out of the wall or have a blade bend. "Giant" is no bad thing...

Very helpful tutorial.

Can you please tell me how you get the clock like that in the first step, last picture?

nice, but I'm doubtful about any heating problems ...
Sugru can stand over 185 degrees celsius (water boils at 100 C, sorry I suck at Fahrenheit), so, heating should't be an issue
I'm doubful about heating problems of iphone (or any phone)... not about Sugru. :-) I think the phone is too close to the electrical transformer and to its heat.
No, he's right about the heating problem. My dad's iPhone heats up, my iPod Touch heats up, for some reason, they do heat up. (Which really should be fixed.)

It's alright i guess, but you're clearly just trying to sell your rubber-goo.
