Components you need

  • An old USB cable (you can find if you have an old mouse or keyboard)
  • DC Male Jack


  • Remove the outer protective layer of the wire to expose bare wire
  • Now use a multimeter to find the VCC & GND of the USB cable.
  • Once you find the VCC & GND, remove the outer cover of the DC Male Jack
  • Pinouts of the DC Male Jack are as such: the long one is the GND & the short one is the VCC
  • Now solder the wire according to the polarity to the DC Male Jack to finish you USB to DC Jack
