I am using the following to stand up the charger. $14.99 at Sears but they give you the money back in Sears money so it is basically free.

I ended up resoldering the connections and tying the cable down to make it stronger.



I spent a grand total of $13.83, but I could have done it for $8.97.

1. 1/8 x 6 x 12 plywood $1.79
2. 1/2" x 1/2" x 24" $2.29
3. $3.95 for 10x 1mm pogo pins. (NOT USED)
4. $0.91 for 10x 1mm drill bits. (NOT USED)
5. 2x 3.2mm pogo pins cost $4.89
6. Wood glue and a few screws (free)
7. Old iPhone USB cable (free)
