Charge port light hack

I took mouldable glue (sugru.com) and fitted a reflective nickel plate into the corner of the port such that light from the little lamp gets reflected onto the receptacle ... now that it's dark out I am able to confirm that it works! It blocks most of the light from shining into your eye and reflects a respectable amount towards the receptacle.

Fabulous idea! I did something similar but stuck the reflective piece on to the charging port cover. I like your idea better as it has the added benefit of keeping you from getting blinded by that stupid poorly designed light.
