All About Solar Mobile Phone Chargers

The new great investment to make is solar mobile phone chargers. With their ability to
eliminate the need of standard chargers and wall outlets, along with preserving the
environment, picking one of these devices up can be of huge value and use.
The simplicity of this product and incredible benefit it provides for people in charging a
cell phone anywhere is priceless. Whether someone is stranded, camping, or out of wall
outlets, a solar cell phone charger can make all the difference.
Until the past few years, the sun has been overlooked in the ability to produce energy
for devices and anything requiring electricity. However, with the invention of solar panels
and other solar devices, solar cell phone chargers have joined the group also.
The process in which these solar phone chargers produce and transfer energy is very
simple. These devices absorb sunlight which makes energy, which is transferred to cell
phones and other compatible electronic devices.
For those requiring a cell phone charge at nighttime, there are storage units available
that can hold deposits of energy until they are needed.

How to make a solar charger for your MDA mobile
The MDA mobile 'phone (also marketed as the I-Mate Jam, XDA Mini, SPV M500
(Orange) ) charges using it's mini USB connector.

I decided to create a solar charger for it allowing me to take it on my travels (to sunny
places) without having to worry about the charger, finding a plug socket and converter. I
had a spare solar panel that outputs around 8V and a few spare components.
The cable
According to the diagram from http://pinouts.ru/data/USB_pinout.shtml , pins 1 is +5V
and pin 4 is ground. All I had to do was to connect a 5V source to these pins. I acquired
a miniature USB connecter from a digital camera cable and removed the normal size
USB connector. The leads are coloured, and the 5V should go to the red lead and
ground to the black lead, the lead shielding should also be connected to ground.
However, the 'phone refused to charge and, after much head scratching and taking the
original charger apart, I was still none the wiser.

Still none the wiser


I eventually prised apart the connector of the lead that goes into the 'phone and found 5
wires, not 4. This wire only had a reference in the diagram but no number and no cable
going to it. I soldered this wire to the wire next to it (pin 4).

Carefully putting this back together and plugging it to the 'phone, hey presto! The
orange charge light came on and the 'phone was charging.

The charging circuit


This is based around a 7805 voltage regulator, the 'phone must only get 5V. The
regulator takes the large voltage from the panel and ensures it never goes above 5V.
These are available in the UK from Maplin, DigiKey, Farnell and RS components. The
circuit is:

Solar Charger Circuit


Here is a solar charger circuit that is used to charge Lead Acid or Ni-Cd batteries using
the solar energy power. The circuit harvests solar energy to charge a 6 volt 4.5 Ah
rechargeable battery for various applications. The charger has Voltage and Current

facilities.

Solar Charger Circuit Diagram

The circuit uses a 12 volt solar panel and a variable voltage regulator IC LM 317. The
solar panel consists of solar cells each rated at 1.2 volts. 12 volt DC is available from
the panel to charge the battery. Charging current passes through D1 to the voltage
regulator IC LM 317. By adjusting its Adjust pin, output voltage and current can be
regulated.
VR is placed between the adjust pin and ground to provide an output voltage of 9 volts
to the battery. Resistor R3 Restrict the charging current and diode D2 prevents
discharge of current from the battery. Transistor T1 and Zener diode ZD act as a cut off
switch when the battery is full. Normally T1 is off and battery gets charging current.
When the terminal voltage of the battery rises above 6.8 volts, Zener conducts and
provides base current to T1. It then turns on grounding the output of LM 317 to stop
charging.

How Solar Battery Chargers Work


Introduction

Uh oh. That shortcut you took through the woods has led you into a maze. You're
lost, and somehow you've ended up off the main road with no way back in sight -and your car is running low on gas. To make matters worse, you've told no one
where you're going and your phone is running out of juice. The measured beeps it
issues to alert you of its imminent demise seem like a reminder of your own as
well.
Luckily for you, there's a break in the forest canopy. You see a wide meadow full
of sunshine streaming down into the tall grass up ahead. You park your car and
walk to the meadow. Once clear of the trees, you look up, and there's not a cloud in
the sky. Yes, you're going to be just fine. After rummaging around in your glove
compartment for a bit, you retrieve your solar-powered battery charger. You
plug the USB cable from the charger into your cell phone, flip the charger over so
that its small solar panel faces skyward, find your cell phone signal, place the
whole setup on a stump, kick back and wait. This is a probably a good time to relax
and read a book, since you know that help is on the way.
Before the first decade of the 21st century, you would have been out of luck had
you found yourself in a scenario like this one. Lately, however, a number of
companies have created a spate of battery chargers that use the power of the sun to
fuel everything from cars to gadgets to AA batteries. Find out about the mechanics
behind solar battery chargers on the next page.
