Secret Charger Compartment

About: I am a die hard Anaheim Ducks hockey fan. I love to take things apart and design/build innovative things and I am always thinking of something to build. In my spare time I love surfing, even though the word ...

In this instruct able I will show you how to make an easy, ten minute project that will keep you younger sisters out of your stuff. (Or other siblings, parents, roommates, etc.) it is a natural looking phone charger with a hidden space inside to hide your stuff. This is a simple way to hide your stuff in the open and with easy access.

Step 1: Things You'll Need

You are going to need these things:
-a phone charger with a plug that slides off
-something to cut the plastic with
-something to pull out the circuit board with
-electrical tape (optional but recommended)

Step 2: Cut It Open

First you are going to slide open the top and cut out the plastic that was concealed behind it. This is going to be where you access your stuff from.

Step 3: Pull Out the Circuit Board

Now you are going to need to pull out the circuit board. This may prove rather difficult and tedious but don't worry, it will all be worth it.

Step 4: Finishing Up

Now you just have to make sure the plug still slides easily on and off and then you might want to put some electrical tape onto the plug to make it more safe. Enjoy!

    That is a innovative idea. I like it and think that is a super sneaky way to hide things from people. I also find it interesting that you are hiding a sim card. You never know when you might need some emergency minutes :-)
