Maybe it stopped working properly in some way, but wasn't totally ruined so you felt bad throwing it out. One of the downsides, however, is a total lack of warranty.

I have no reservations whatsover recommending this tool, some of you may have seen my old soldering station instructable, but this is waaaaaay better than that mess.It served me well for many years, but this is a definite upgrade.I took that same USB cable, stripped the positive and negative wires (usually red and black, but in this case gray and black--green and white are data, so you don't need those here).I decided to remove the battery completely since the phone would be permanently powered, and lighter without it.I decided to go this route as it will allow me to keep an eye on things without straining my wallet too much, with is stretched pretty thin these days.

It's pretty straightforward and simple process, and well worth it. and if they're really lucky they just might catch me swearing and trying to fix the latest problem that's cropped up with my Rigid Bot.

For me, I had to open the case and modify some things.

Here's where that soldering station from thediyoutlet came in.

I'm using mine as a monitor for my printer so I simply found a couple of models on thingiverse already designed for my phone and printer, printed them out, cobbled them together and was ready to install.

Depending on your phone, for tools you may need a soldering iron, bench top power supply, hot glue gun, and a set of teeny tiny screw drivers.

This one has a soldering iron, hot air gun, and a variable power supply, all of which I ended up using for this project.
