Using a block of wood, I’d like to make an USB Charging Edison Lamp with a Catch-All.
Below are some examples of what some of the components would look like:
Itemized materials list:
The difficult part is finding a usb charging port that has a plug for the light socket that is spaced enough so that I can only show the two usb ports (like the second sketch I drew).
I could possibly use something like this:
Or I could use a hub but that would probably require a lot of wiring space inside of the wood.
Depending on how I go about wiring things, and whether or not I’ll have a dimmer there are a few options for power cords:
I could also just have the dimmer directly on the socket, but then I’m not sure how to wire up the usb cable.
I could potentially use a simple extension cord if I wanted to use a USB hub mounted on the inside of the box…which makes me now think that I shouldn’t be using a solid piece of wood to make this out of!
