Charge your phone with your own 3D printed Tesla Supercharger [Video – 3D files]

phone surpercharger 2

Martin Hansen, a Tesla enthusiast from Northern Germany, designed his own miniature 3D version of a Tesla Supercharger fitted with a USB cable to charge your smartphone.

DIYers will be happy to know that Hansen released the .stl files of all the components so you can make one yourself at home.

Hansen made it fairly simple with only 6 components needed to be 3D printed. You will also need a charging cable matching your phone, Amazon should be able to help you with that, and for a more realistic look, instead of 3D printing the side struts, Hansen recommends using 8mm aluminum pipes.

Other than that, all you need is some glue and a little dexterity.

He made all the 3D parts available for free on his website, but he is also taking donations if you want to help him out. Hansen recommends using ABS plastic to 3D print the parts.

Here’s a quick video of his work:

      I think I might have a few printed with a metal base of some sort, to keep it upright. If I’m feeling ambitious, I might modify the base to have a proper spool for the cable. As long as I have Mr. Hansen’s blessing, I’m happy to include others! I’ll comment back here once I make a plan.
