Make a USB Charger Cable From Cardboard and Wire

Make a USB Charger Cable From Cardboard and Wire

I was sent the following video from a friend of mine showing how inmates of our prisons are making USB charger cables for their smuggled in phones using nothing but cardboard and a little bit of wire.

To me, I find this quite fascinating and can be used in a pinch in an emergency.

You are going to need the following items:

  • Cardboard (inmate uses a piece from a birthday card)
  • Knife/scissors (inmate uses a razor)
  • Pen
  • Thumb tack
  • Wire (inmate uses some wire he took from the kettle)
  • Tape

Check the video out below and let us know what you think.
