How To Make Portable USB Charger

The easiest portable battery charger is made!

1) Will it burn your phone? NO!
2) Is it safe? YES!
3) Can You order any KITs from us to do this item by Your own? YES!
4) Should You be proud of it? Definitelly YES!

Technical Note:
1. While summary voltage of appiled AA-cells is higher than 4.2 V (max voltage of your cell phone battery) it will charge your phone
2. It is better to use the same four AA-cells
3. Accumulators or old-school acid cells no metter but it is better to use accus while You can recharge them
4. diode and resistor ARE important
5. Diode may be any Schottky diode with a forward current greater than 1 Amper
6. Resistor limits current and accepts the voltage difference between Charger and phone. You may use resistor of the SAME value but with a bigger power dissipation
7. Until Your battery inside Your phone -- no overvoltage for phone happens. Battery keeps voltage in the phone's schematic on it's own level, untill it is charged full
8. after fullcharge no overvoltage happens cause Your phone automaticly switches off charging when battery is full

This guy makes soldering look easy. I will make a mess of molten metal that short circuits everything.

Umm ye..

spend 4 hours looking up this stuff, buying the components and putting it together..
costing you probably the same as it would to buy a working, far better build version.

Or spending 4 minutes buying it from Amazon.

I'd rather just buy it.

if you put NiCd rechargeables in, you can use a solar cell to charge the batteries which then charge your phone

I want to try it but soldering is like rocket science to me

I'm not very good at rocket science, either

What is the rating of the resistor? I cant tell if its1, 1.2, or 2.

Could you make TurtleBeaches portable with this?
User avatar #31 to #6 - biporch (07/19/2013) [-]
Why'd you do that?

Supercaps are better to use, they charge instantly and are lighter than batteries.

8/10 post as the "funny" channel wasn't really the ideal place to put this
