Introduction: Super Simple USB Charger Repair
of finding your USB charger ripped open in the course of its lifespan. But since chargers are a bit expensive and sometimes its just better to stay at home and use what you have, I made you this instructable to help you SAVE your USB charger from eminent danger of getting scrapped and your wallet from getting depleted.
This instructable will be my entry in the Stick-it Contest and if you enjoy this instructable please vote for it. :) It would really help me a lot.
I will show you how easy it is to do it.
Now lets get to it! :)
Step 1: What You'll Need:
2. Electric Tape / Any adhesive but for me E. Tape is the most effective and most appropriate for this job;
3. Two (2) Fasteners with METAL CLAMPS (White part)
4. One (1) sad charger
Step 2: Wrapping Your Charger With Tape
1. We are gonna cut a piece of tape (around 4-6 inches)
2. We are gonna wrap around the ripped area of the USB charger and fully cover the area
3. Make sure to apply enough pressure to make a tight wrap around the ripped area for aesthetics and for better quality
4. After you wrapped the tape around the ripped area, make sure that the tape is not moving up or down. If you find that your tape is moving, you should either apply a new wrap and tightly wrap the ripped area with the tape or use the old tape by re-wrapping the old tape
Step 3: Securing the Tape and Provide Better Support
1. After you have tightly wrapped the ripped area using the tape, we will know take the fasteners metal clamp and start to wrap the tape with it, while trying to wrap it at an angle so that we can continuously cover the whole tape
2. It was intended that the fasteners metal clamp would exceed the width of the tape, this is because we will use that difference of the part of the USB charger with tape and that with no tape as a means to secure in place the tape;
3. We will firmly press the metal clamp around the tape until it is fully covered and adjust the metal clamp to the size of the USB charger with no tape, to secure it in place
3. Once you reach the end of the metal clamp, use the middle part of the scissors hand to press down the end part of the metal clamp, to achieve a firm and secure wrap as can be seen in the photos above.
Step 4: AND... We're Done!
