It’s all the rage right now and it’s not even a fashion trend. A wall hanging cell phone charging system is so functional and a needed convenience that many business establishments have this contraption to accommodate all sorts of cell phone makes and types. At home, it’s like a one-stop-fits-all charging system that gets rid of all the bulky chargers and messy wires. There are many cell phone charging designs that are readily available but you can make one if you prefer. Just make sure what you have in mind will organize the clutter in your home.
Before purchasing or beginning to assemble the components of this project, you have to measure the height and width of your wall mounted cell phone charging system based on the space available in our home. It will also help to get a pen and paper and draw your design for your reference when buying the materials and supplies you will need.
Make a quick trip to your local hardware and purchase the following:
- A hands-free family charger that can hold up to three of cell phones.
- A pre-cut or pre-fabricated see-through shelving with up to three single compartments.
- A plastic tubing to hide the charging circuit running the entire length of the wall system to the electrical socket.
- Dry wall screws
- Wall Putty
- Electrical tape or plastic wire
- Drill a hole into your wall and start placing the screws in using a screwdriver. Use a fair amount of the wall putty to firmly secure the screws.
- Assemble the pre-cut shelves and drill holes through it and mount these on to the screws.
- Gather the electrical cords and charging circuit together using electrical tape or plastic wire. Make sure all these are gathered in one straight line.
- Use the plastic tubing to cover the entire straight line until it reaches your electrical socket.
- Place your hands free family charger on the shelf. Now you are ready to begin charging.
Sure, you can build and design compact cell phone charging systems in your home to save on space or to get all your cell phones charged in once place but you will have to ask yourself if this is well worth the effort or the cost. Before making a final decision, compare the DIY cost with that of a readily available product out there. Maybe at the end of the day, you’ll spend less than it would have cost if you built it yourself.
- Turn your cell phone off when you don’t plan on answering any calls from your office or from a business colleague. This is mostly ideal to do before calling it a night. Turning your cell phone off while you’re sleeping will preserve your battery and help lengthen the time between charging your phone.
- When there’s no signal, there’s no signal. Just resign yourself to the fact that you are in a dead spot. Forcing your phone to search for a signal will deplete your cell phone’s battery faster and might force you to replace your battery more frequently.
