KTZ Project: DIY iPod nano Dock
Sync with compuer
Charging with pc or adaptor
Play music with a output amp
Step 1: Prepare
iPod nano USB to PC
5v Adaptor (need 3, cut the 2 tails)
Box for iPod stand
a Doll just for fun
Step 2: Make Ipod Stand
Step 3: Make the USB Sync Line for This Dock
Inside The USB lines:
Red for Vcc
Black for Gnd
Green for Usb+
White for Usb-
Red and Black make one line (for power supply)
Green and White make the other (for data sync)
Step 4: Drill 3 Holes
we need 3 holes on the box back
one for audio
the other side 2 holes for usb
Inside the box, I use one usb female jack and soldering with the 2 usb hole.
the audio jack hole just soldering with the 3.5mm audio wire which we put in the ipod stand (the second step)
When done, Insert the orignal Apple USB to PC into the USB female jack, and close the box
Step 5: Put Your IPod on the Dock
Ok, Put the iPod on this Dock.
If you only want to charging the iPod with a 5v Adaptor, link to the hole for power supply (like second pic)
Or you want sync with PC, use the line we made at 3rd step, link to PC, of course you can also charge iPod with PC. (like third pic)
Step 6: Finally, for Fun
Put the doll on this iPod dock, just for fun.
