Add a USB Charging Port to a Clock Radio

Add a USB Charging Port to a Clock RadioIf you like to use your phone in bed but have run into the all-too-common problem of the charger cord being too short—and you enjoy hacking household objects—this project is for you. Combine a USB charger with a clock radio for bedside charging.

Instructables users Nerdz, an electronics engineering student, says this simple project took him about an hour. He put the USB charger ($5 at Walmart) in where the backup battery goes in a clock radio. You basically just have to make room for the USB charger, filing down edges where needed.

And there you go, consolidate space on your side table (assuming you have a clock radio there already) and convenient charging at arm's reach.
