My bedroom is, how did the estate agent put it..? Cozy! Yes, not small, but cozy. My storage space is limited and one thing I use on a daily basis, as I’m sure most of you do too, is my phone charger. However, when it’s not in use it just took up space on my desk, sort of scrunched up, tucked in next to the right hand speaker. It’s okay, but not great.
Anyway, as an aspiring designer I decided to design and make something that would solve my untidy charger issue, so I set about designing a simple device that would neatly and discretely contain the charger when not in use.
I came up with this, a simple design that contains the mains part of the charger and uses the housing wall as a surface to wrap the cable around. The USB end makes use of the 3 pins found on UK plugs and through the natural tension found in the cable, simply locks into place. The charger container is mounted to my wall about a metre above the mains wall socket.
I designed the charger wall mount using SolidWorks and printed the design out in PLA using an Ultimaker.
Please feel free to leave comments, ask questions, share and like my posts, your interest and feedback is much appreciated, thanks!
