Festool charger with USB connector
« on: August 26, 2018, 12:28 PM »
To make this “gadget” I used the electronics of a small standard usb wallcharger that I built into a Festool TCL 3.

I hope it offers Festool and, of course, the FOG members some inspiration...

Grtz

Here’s a picture from the inside.

I did cut out (with a Dremel) only one USB port because that’s enough for me.

The circuit board I glued in with a hot glue gun and connected the 220V wires to the input of the TLC 3.

The output of the USB port is 3,15A so it’s also suitable for charging tablets.

Curious, why would you want to turn something small into something big?

Maybe to avoid the purchase of a micro systainer?...
