Capacitive Discharge Battery Tab Spot Welder

Things are coming together on my latest project, a capactive discharge spot welder intended to be used for welding battery tabs. I will be creating a project page shortly to document the entire process but wanted to put something up tonight as I have made some significant progress on the project tonight.

Phone Charging Station

 Phone Charging Station

A common occurrence out our hackerspace has been phones running out of juice. We did not have an organized USB cord collection and members were often running around looking/asking for the appropriate charge cord for their particular phone. We decided to make a dedicated phone charging station with all the most popular phone charging cords.
