Hi there, so first off I’m a longtime fan of the maker community and I’d most likely be a dues paying member of VHS by now if I didn’t live on the coast and it was a ferry ride away. As much as I like to tinker and build stuff (mostly 3D printing and carpentry) in my spare time though, I’ve got a project that’s just a little outside my skill ceiling I was hoping I could perhaps hire somebody to help with.
So the project is I have this unique watch that requires a special proprietary induction charger to top up the internal battery. Unfortunately it’s not a standard Qi charger or else this would be a lot simpler. The charging base, wall plug and the cable between them are all larger than you might expect and kind of a hassle to pack around when traveling light. For a couple years now I’ve been dreaming about hacking together a more streamlined solution. The idea I have in my head is to take the charging base and the wall plug and combine them together into a single plastic housing with a USB C port on the side so I can just use a single cable and a portable battery or a cellphone wall charger.
I’ve never hired anybody for a job like this before but I’ll pay any and all labor/materials whatever it takes, so if you or anybody you know might have the soldering skills and be interested please let me know and lets see if we can make something cool out of it.
