To charge my Nexus 4 mobile phone while sitting on my desk, I designed a simple dock.
The USB cable is embedded inside it and held in place with a little glue.
It works, but the design isn’t quite right. The notification LED on the phone is obscured by the base and it could do with being a bit bigger for stability. Next time, I may try to angle the phone a bit as well.
But, this is the magic of rapid prototyping!
