Tired of your phone constantly dying on you and not being able to charge it when your out.  In this tutorial i show how to build a solar phone case which can charge your phone when its out in the sun.


phone case

To start off i use two 3 volt solar panels fro dollar store solar lights. Smaller solar lights will have 1.5 volt solar cells. In the case that you use 1.5 volt solar cells use 3 instead of 2.

I then wire the two solar panels in series as you can see from looking at the back of the solar panel





i then cut a charging cable from my phone and connect the red and black wires from the charging cable to the positive and negative terminals of the solar panel




To finish it off i wrap the wires in tape and glue the 2 solar panels onto my phone case
