From cellphones to smartwatches, you likely have a lot of devices to charge throughout the day. While we all enjoy the convenience of having the world at our fingertips, organizing all of your chargers can be a mess. If you are like us, you are all too familiar with tangled cords and missing chargers. With today’s simple DIY project, we are going to help you keep everything organized for your future charging needs.


This project only requires a few supplies. Before you begin, make sure you have a suitable flat surface to charge your devices on such as a nightstand, coffee table, desk, etc. Find all recommended magnets on our website where you can receive same-day shipping on all orders placed by 3 PM EST.  

Supplies needed:

  • Charging cords
  • Pen springs
  • Glue
  • Adhesive backed discs (½” x ⅛”)


This project is a favorite of ours for two reasons: It is simple and it gives the creator a lot of freedom to tinker around with the placement of their cords, allowing them to truly make the most out of this hack.  

Follow these steps:

  • Determine how many devices you want to charge at this specific location. Once you figure this out, map out where you would like to place each device.
  • Wrap your pen springs around the charging cable, near the head. 
  • Place your adhesive-based magnets on the table edge or on the base of the table closer to the edge.
  • From here, line up your spring to your magnet. There will be an attraction, meaning you can organize your magnets efficiently without worrying about tangles, lost chargers, etc.
  • Enjoy charging all of your devices!
