What I did this evening

When I got my Nokia N80 phone of the things I noticed was I needed to charge it more than my old one. It does a lot more though and has built in wi-fi so it make sense it would use more power. I looked for a desk stand and could not find a proper one. There was one flat block with a power connector spike that pointed straight up but it looked like it would break off if the phone fell over - and it was to expensive for what it was. In the box with the phone you got a big to small Nokia power connector to allow you to re-use your old charger. I bought another one of these off eBay (£1.50 + £1.00 postage) and decided to make my own stand. I went for function!

Plug the Nokia adaptor in and slip in the phone and it charger. Might need to work on the aesthetics. Plug the Nokia adaptor in, slip in the phone and it charges. Might need to work on the aesthetics.

That's a perfectly good piece of geek kit there. Nicely done! :)

give it a head on one side and a tail on the other, and it's a SHEEP shaped stand!

I believe there is going to be a vacancy on Blue Peter soon.
