Mini Solar Charger Project – Powering A Mobile Phone

Mini Solar Charger Project - Powering A Mobile Phone

Just completed this simple, but rewarding mini solar charger project, which I can now use to charge my mobile phone, iTouch, iPad etc... Will also be able to take it up into the hills when hiking or camping, for emergency power...

Uses a few cheap components, like a mini USB charge controller and USB booster circuit, along with 2 Lithium-Ion batteries. coupled with a 1.5w solar panel...
