Adel Daoud of Chicago's Hillside suburb was arrested Friday night.
The U.S. Attorney's Office said in a news release Saturday the device was inert and the public was never at risk.
Daoud was charged in court Saturday with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and attempting to damage and destroy a building with an explosive.
Federal prosecutors say the FBI began monitoring him after he posted material online about "violent jihad" and the killing of Americans.
