Visual Cellphone Battery / cellphone charge cable

Visual Cellphone Battery

When the cellphone is being charged, it needs several hours. The screen of cellphone is black in the meantime, and we can't learn how much the cellphone is charged. Therefore, we always light up the screen to learn how much the cellphone is charged, and this behavior issues in loss of buttons and decreases life span of buttons. So I add a small light to the line of cell phone charger as power indicator for people to see the power status immediately. It can also remind us of unplugging the charger when the cell phone is fully charged.
