Introduction: Mains USB Charger...

About: They Call me Wallace.



Having The Charger Next To my Night Table, The Cable Was Way Too Short!!!

So I Found An Old Power Usb Adaptor .. Took the inside Out and Place them Inside a Project Box.

Then i Got Hold of a Power  Cord. And a Switch Put  it All Together and Presto.. No more Leaning to one Side To Reach the iPhone.

And the Best is I Could Turn The Power ON or OFF. 

Its Great.....   Give it a Go and Remember To Have Fun.......

Note PLEASE BE CAREFUL YOU WILL BE DEALING WITH 240V BE CAREFUL.

    Regarding your last image: Do NOT tin the wire before you screw it into a terminal. Never! The tin (solder) will slowly flow when under stress (think: thermal cycles) and weaken the connection. Use core end sleeves.
