Build your own USB charger
Tuesday, February 26, 2008


I read the Guru's post about a USB charger out on DealExtreme and I immediately remembered a post I've read a while ago on an Arabic mobile forum. It describes building your own USB mobile charger that will eventually look similar to the 6$ charger. I haven't tested this myself, but user comments on this thread were very promising.

This is a translation of the guide, original thread is on ArabNokia. Please note that I'm not responsible for any damages that might happen to your phone because of following this guide. I have not tried it myself and I'm not 100% sure if it works, or if it is safe to perform.

Here we go:

  1. Get a cheap compatible Car Charger and a cheap USB mouse.
  2. We won't need the charger itself, we'll only be using its end the connects to the phone. Cut it off but leaving a fair length of cable attached to it
  3. Same thing in the USB mouse, we'll be needing only the USB end. Cut it off, also leaving a fair length of the cable.
  4. Unwire both cables.
  5. In the charger cable, you'll find 2 wires, red and black. In the USB cable you'll find 4 wires; red, green, yellow and blue (white instead of blue in some cases)
  6. Now attach both red wires together, and the charger's black wire to USB's blue one. (or white if blue does not exist).
  7. Make sure they're isolated from each other. You can cut the other green and yellow wires we won't need them.
  8. That's it! Now you've got a USB charger ;)
