DIY Charging Station

Hi, I just used my old USB cable, 2 pogo pins and LEGO blocks to make a charging station for my android watch

It is not difficult as long as you test which pin is red and black. Just measure and drill 2 holes on a LEGO block. 

I also added 2 magnets to the charging core so it can attach with the watch better.

Hope you find it interesting.

Yes, it charges the watch and you can see in my 2nd picture. The outer 2 pins are for charging and inner 2 pins is for data. So for now this is a charging station only. Also I have to cut the corners of the triangle lego blocks so that I can drop the watch and it slots in to charging without adjusting it.

I have been using it for a few days and it works perfectly!
