Make Your Own Nexus 7 Charging Stand

If you have one of Google’s awesome Nexus 7 tablets, but don’t have a stand, here is a great way to make your own, all you need is the original box.

Step 1

Start with the part of the box that held the tablet, shown below.

Punch a hole in the middle of the bottom part, that will be where the USB cable goes.

Step 2

Orient the box that held the charger at such an angle that the tablet rests and holds the box in place (shown below).

Step 3

Use some duct tape to hold the box in place (shown below).

Now the box stays put when you remove the tablet, this provides a firm foundation for the tablet in the future.

Step 4

Punch a hole in the side of the box, and run the USB cable used for charging through the hole (shown below).

Step 5

Plug the tablet in and then gently lower it into its resting place

And now you have a charging stand for your Nexus 7.
