Portable power for Phone Charger

Post by Darrells » Mon Oct 10, 2011 10:07 pm

Some of the extended trips we go on battery life on my phone becomes a problem. I checked some of the store bought chargers and none had very good reviews, so I built one. Everything came from Radio Shack and total cost was $13.

Drill an 11/8" hole in one end.

Push outlet in.

Solder wires on to the battery holder.

This will completely charge a phone multiple times. Most phones only require 3.7v but I decided to make it 12V (8 AA batteries) in case I want to charge something that requires 12v. Overall dimensions are 5x2.5x2.

Good compact, neat job Mate. You'll probably get a bunch of requests, maybe start a side-line :) I'd build one, if we had mobile phone coverage. [Whataya like with Satellite phone chargers???] :D.
Nice job.............
