hide your battery chargers in snack boxes

max’s solution to the many battery chargers we have in our life.

“put all your battery chargers and power adapters in an ikea snack box – hidden and in a nice order.

put the multiple socket outlet in the first box and plug in the chargers. the main power plug can leave the box from the side handle. in the second box, make holes to allow the cables and plug connectors to stick out and write / draw what the plug is for.


just pile the two boxes one over the other. in the top one you can put the items to charge (cameras, cellular phones, even a laptop fits!), the bottom one is hiding and keeping in order all the cables.”

    With this idea you’ll have all your adapters plugged in all the time, or at least when you are using just one of them. That is quite a waste of electricity as well as a potential fire hazard.

    Nice idea. I’ve been meaning to do a similar thing, but with the Fira range which has nice little drawers with ready-made cutouts. Only thing that would need to be done is to put holes in the back piece. I don’t know if the Fira range is available in the US.
