soooo, I bought a 8 gig kingston flashdrive, and in less than a month the plastic piece that attaches to your keys broke. :( So I was bored and decide to make a new one.
This isnt a DIY, just because I dont have the time. but I thought I'd at least show what I've done.
(This is my first intractable I've posted, so forgive me)
USB flash drive (I used an 8 gig, but use watever
Small amounts of Plexi glass
Solder iron (I used this to clear up and smooth out the hot glue)
wire (or anything you wanna use to attach a key chain or something to it)
So what I did is I ripped apart the plastic original casing, carefully. Then cut plexi down to size. Then pieced it together around the circuit board of the flash drive with hot glue. did a little clean-up with a razor blade and a soldering iron, to make it nicer looking. and Tada!
OH! I also added some (green) plastic covered wire for the keychain attachment :)
(Sorry for the camera phone pic)
Thanks for looking!
ok, so the notes on the pictures are taking to long, so anywho, the reason I have the foggy place where the light is, is I melted the plexi with the soldering iron down to the led so that the light refracts better. before I did that, the tiny led was barely noticeable.
