How to Make a Jawbone Charging Cable

by Greyson Ferguson

The Motorola Jawbone is a Bluetooth earpiece that is able to sync up with just about any mobile phone (as long as it is Bluetooth enabled). With the Jawbone, you can make calls hands-free in your vehicle and anywhere else. Although the Jawbone comes with a charger, you can also charge it through a USB connection. To do so, you need to make a connection adjustment to install the charge the equipment.

Plug the USB cable into the full-sized connection on a USB mini-adapter. The USB connection is the standard, 1/2-inch jack on most USB cables. It is the same connection size as what is found on a computer. USB mini is the smaller connection option that is roughly a quarter of the size of a standard A port. Many phones, Bluetooth devices and other small electrical devices have USB mini ports.

Plug the mini end of the adapter into the mini USB connection on the Bluetooth.

Insert the opposite end of the cable into a USB connection on your computer. This will draw an electrical current from the computer and begin charging your mobile headset.
