Off grid solar powered chargers have many benefits – if you’re regularly on the move it’s common to find your phone battery running low while the mains charger is sitting quietly at home! Now it’s possible to construct a simple device that is about the same size as a smart phone and can be set up to keep your phone topped up wherever you are!



This idea is perfect for camping or hiking trips – a charged phone could make all the difference in an emergency situation! It could also save the day if you work outdoors or away from home a lot.

It’s now possible to buy a very cheap interchangeable USB charger with a range of adapters for all sorts of devices so one charger could be used for any type of phone. It will even work with your iPod as well! ๐Ÿ˜‰

The tutorial has useful links that will tell you where to find your materials – you don’t have to be an expert in electronics or highly skilled with your hands to make a simple solar charger like this one. The tools required are a soldering iron, a glue gun and a multitool – or if you have some pliers that can cut and strip small electrical wires, that would do the job! If you’re still not up for the challenge, there are many solar chargers now available to buy.

A charging device that has no built-in battery will only be useful during the day but it is a more eco-friendly option because the chemicals used in batteries can be a cause of environmental pollution both during production and then disposal at the end of their life. Please do your bit when disposing of used batteries by taking them to a local recycling centre where the component parts and materials can be reused or recycled.

Solar technology is finding its feet now due to more widespread recognition of the finite nature of current resources that are used to generate electricity. If you think about it, solar really is the ultimate form of power because the sun donates freely vastly more than we can use every day. We just have to harness it! Every off-grid option, however small, will help to reduce the burden on national grid systems – many countries are still dragging their heels when it comes to sustainable power generation and renewables account for around 20% of the world total energy supply – so we have to find ways to take more responsibility. Another key is to improve the energy efficiency of our homes and businesses.

The growing interest from governments in the use of “fracking” for natural gas to produce cheaper electricity is extremely threatening for the environment and the future health of the planet. Supporting sustainable energy is the way to go!
