I’m sure all of us have experienced being out of charge, nowhere near a charger and needing to use our device badly. This genius video by American Hacker shows how to make a portable charger so you’ll never be caught with a powerless phone ever again. The video goes you through the entire process step by step.
The thing about smartphones is that because they are so useful for so many things aside from just making phone calls and sending text messages, their battery gets used up pretty quickly and if you’re out all day and have no place to charge your phone, you might end up without a phone. Because of this problem, many cellphone stores now sell powerbanks, also known as portable cell phone chargers. You charge these devices to their capacity while at home and when you go out, you plug your device into these chargers and juice up your phone once again. However in order to save money, many DIY enthusiasts are making their own portable phone chargers at home using inexpensive materials. This one of course will also work in a grid-down situation: All you would need is a 9-volt battery and they are typically not too hard to find.
This project requires some simple knowledge of basic wiring and electronics so if you need it, ask for help and advice from those who know about the subject. As with anything electrical, use caution when operating and making. Do not get it wet or expose to fire, heat and freezing temperatures and do not store in extreme cold or heat.
Note that this is an emergency charger only. This circuit does NOT stop charging after the batteries reach a certain voltage; overcharging will damage the batteries. Do not charge for extended periods of time and never use it to charge your devices overnight.
