Smart Phone Docking Station

Ducktivity provided by imagex

After searching for a phone docking station online with no success (they sell them- but only for the phone not including the extra thickness for the rubber case)I decided to make my own one out of cardboard and duct tape - it is actually very strong, sturdy and works perfectly! Also since google upgraded the voice recognition, i just dictate messages etc into it on my desk and only have to hit the send button... note the space on left side for charger cable ;)

Skill Level: 


Approximate Crafting Time: 


Supplies and Tools:

  • cardboard
  • duck tape (black)
  • scissors
  • stanley knife


  • Step 1

    Find a box slightly larger than your phone

  • Step 2

    Cut off the lid and one end so that the phone protrudes about 1cm from the box (easy to put the phone in and out and also press the on / off button on top)

  • Step 3

    Trim the sides to the same thickness as your phone but make sure the bottom lip protrudes further to stop the phone from falling out

  • Step 4

    Cut a space to make sure the charger cable / sync cable fits

  • Step 5

    Cover the phone container part fully in duck tape

  • Step 6

    Create a triangle with cardboard and cover with duck tape - attach to the back of the phone container - check before sticking fully that it provides the support to the phone container at you desired angle

  • Step 7

    And... you are done, you have a practical and cool phone docking station to go right next to you computer on your desk.

    You can always keep your phone charged, synced, easy access to stream radio while you work and perfect for using the voice recognition text while sending skype / whatsapp / text messages :)
