DIY Solar Powered iPhone Charger Will Take You 3 Hours To Make

These days, there are tons of smartphone chargers on the market to choose from, including the solar powered ones that are kind to the environment. We’ve written about several of those before, and my favorite one is the iKini, which is a solar powered gadget charger built into a bikini. Just don’t get in the pool with that thing attached or you’ll have to buy another one. Maybe you are more of a do-it-yourself person, and you’d like to make your own. This is a DIY solar powered iPhone charger that you can make.

Cyrus Farivar, who describes himself as a DIY newbie, built this solar powered iPhone charger in 3 hours. It cost him about $90 in supplies. As Cyrus points out, there are probably hundreds of thousands of people who have created something like this, but he wants to encourage those who have no experience in this kind of thing to give it a go. As you know, it’s very rewarding to attempt a project like this and have it turn out well. His DIY solar powered iPhone charger tutorial assures that you’ll be able to do it too.

If you are ready to take the plunge, just click over to Juiced: How A DIY Newbie Built A Solar iPhone Charger In 3 Hours. You might be worried that you’ll mess up your iPhone in the process. As he points out, make sure you do the smoke test. If you see smoke, it means you’ve done something wrong and unplug everything. After getting all the supplies, assembling it all and soldering…He ended up with a cute little 2W solar panel which can sit on his window ledge and soak up the power. I don’t know if this is the kind of project I would attempt myself, but his DIY solar powered charger tutorial is very inspiring!
