Clever DIY Charging Station Projects

Technology is everywhere, and we don’t just mean at work. Phones, tablets, laptops, iPods… all pretty much littering your house, and always, ALWAYS with low battery. Like when you grab your tablet to double check that recipe for dinner, and you find out your pre teen has “Candy Crushed’ it to death? Or the mystery of the shrinking battery bar for just no good reason, right when you need to call in to work? How about that morning panic when your sixteen year old just cannot leave the house without their missing phone? Or the worse yet, five different devices plugged in and left to clutter your counters and sofas. Yep, we feel ya. And we got the cure. Ok, not “The Cure”. That would be a whole ‘nother post. Sorry, off track. We can fix this! Try these clever DIY charging station projects so the whole family can not only keep track of their tech in a central place, but keep everything ready to go, all charged up! Just another modern day organization solution. You’re welcome.
