Introduction: Chromebook Charging Station (8-bay)

Charging a bunch of Chromebooks was a messy affair with the wires and it was hard to get to a specific Chromebook when they are all stacked on top of each other.

Having a spare shelf around, I made an 8-bay Chromebook Charging Station.

Sorry, there are no images for the early steps. This Instructable is an after thought.


  • Small bookcase (mine is an Ikea BILLY)
  • Electrical extension cord
  • Bookends (smooth enamelled, about 19cm x 13cm)
  • Wire clips (to hold wires in place)
  • Screws (small ones for wood)
  • Tape
  • Non-slip mat


  • Drill and drill bit for the screw
  • Saw for metal parts

Step 1: Prepare the Bookends

Drill two holes into the bookends and saw away the flap

Make sure you gotten a bookend that is metal and enamelled. This would prevent any scratches onto your Chromebooks

Step 2: Measure the Bays for Your Chromebooks

Measure where each bookend will be screwed in. For my 8-bay shelf, each bay is 4.5cm wide.

Step 3: Screw in the Bookends

Screw in the bookends. I placed a tape over the screws to have a smooth surface for Chromebooks to slide over it.

I then added a non-slip mat on top that, with holes cut to fit the spacing between the bays. See next step for a photo example.

Step 4: Add the Wire Clips and Wire-up

I added the wire clips onto the bookends. I used 3 wire clips for each bay.

After that it is time to wire up your shelf. I numbered each wire and the adapter, to help with any troubleshooting in the future.

Step 5: Enjoy Your New Charging Station

Put in all your Chromebooks and enjoy a new organised way of charging..!
