Phone Charger Mod to Aid in Nighttime Fitting

Recently I've been getting frustrated at night trying to plug my charger into my phone when I'm about to go sleep, my nexus 4 charger does have little notch to aid in fitting but I can never feel it, this mod is super simple and everyone can do it, you only need a glue gun..

I suppose this may help people with sight issues or even other impairments.

Step 1: Which Way Is Up?

Check which is the top by plugging it in to your phone (there may even be markings)

Step 2: Go Use It.

Apply a small dollop of glue to the top of the lead.

Step 3: Go Use It.

I hope that's helped a few of you and as I wanted to do it anyway I thought I'd use it as my first instructable.

Update: Works fantastically! I find it super simple to fit with my eyes closed or when In the dark it's a great little mod that makes my life easier.

    You don't need to go that far, literally just plug it into your device & put a bit of glue on it.

    I never thought of that. haha.

    Though I guess you can always just peel the glue off if you're selling the phone or something with this easy mod.
