How to Make Solar Charger Power Bank Guide (With Pictures and Video)

Today I'm here to explain how to make solar charger cum Powerbank for your smartphone. You can watch a video and read full-text guide to make your own one. If you are satisfied with this project don't forget to share it with your friends. Here you can read more about different components, where you can get it, How much will it cost, etc.

"Whenever I see you, you will be  looking at your phone". This is the unique and most usual sentence that I could hear several times from my friends and relatives. I know, this is not a compliment. but, How to get rid of this problem? I don't know. However, the one and only thing that I can predict about you is that You have experienced frustration at least once in your lifetime because of the low battery charge in your smartphone. Am I right? Tell me more about your experiences.

This Is the Main Part

If you Like this video Don't forget to share it with your friends. Sharing is caring. It's like a reward you give me for my Passionate work. Thank you.

Components to make Solar Charger cum Power bank

List of all components that you needed to make solar power bank.

1. DC to DC Converter

[caption id="attachment_954" align="aligncenter" width="491"]DC to DC Converter DC to DC Converter[/caption]

  1. Buy a 3V to 5V 1A  Module Step Up Converter Boost USB Charger. It  regulates and stabilizes output voltage and current. I bought it from Amazon. I'm a great fan of Amazon where you can search and buy each and every Components that you need to make projects like this. My readers aren't only from India. So I cannot provide link to a specific product link to Amazon. If you have any doubts about this product just drop your comments below. I'm very happy to help you. You can trust Amazon because they provide quality components. We can track our product anytime from your smartphone. That's why I love Amazon. In India, a DC to DC converter costs around 130 rupees only. In US, it's 4$ or more.

2. AA Size Rechargeable Batteries

[caption id="attachment_955" align="aligncenter" width="504"]Rechargeable Batteries Rechargeable Batteries[/caption]


Buy four AA Size 1.2 V 1600 mAh Rechargeable batteries. You can use any 5V 1600 mAh Battery to make this project. By the way, I know you may be thinking why I placed the rechargeable battery outside the device. There is a reason. Consider your smartphone is running out of power and you forgot to recharge the power bank. What would you do? Obviously, you can use a solar panel to charge your smartphone. What would you do If it was a cloudy day or you are facing this problem at night? (hope It won't). Here comes the importance of placing battery outside using a battery connector. Therefore you can buy some non-rechargeable batteries and connect them to the battery connector and recharge your smartphone. That's it.

3. Diodes, Battery connector, Plain PCB Wires, Switch

Buy 2 IN4007Diodes a battery connector, a piece of plain PCB from your favorite hardware/electronics shoppe. Since these components are locally available I don't recommend Amazon here. You can use a plain Pcb to make the circuit compact. At the same time, you can simply connect all the components directly using a soldering Iron.

Soldering Iron



If you have a smartphone and internet connection, you may feel like the world is at your finger tip. You can watch videos, stay updated with the latest news, learn new languages, make money, etc. But a smartphone without charge is like heartless human body. No connection with the world and it cannot perform even its basic functions. As soon as my smartphone cries "I'm running out of power," some kind of frustration will surface in my mind.

It's not a good Idea to buy a power bank cum solar charger from Amazon (I don't know if it is available). Instead, I bought a DC to DC converter and 4 rechargeable batteries from amazon (Total $4). And I made My own Power bank cum solar charger. It's your turn to make solar charger. Go ahead! Don't forget to share..

How to Make Solar Mobile Charger (With Pictures and Video)

The only thing that I can predict about you is, you have experienced frustration at least once in your lifetime because of the low battery charge in your mobile phone. Am I right? But ever since I experienced it, I started to think about a portable Solar mobile charger. Solar power is everywhere. We don't want to look here and there to find a power plug. Just plug in the solar charger to the phone.

Nowadays, solar power is gaining increased attention. As a result Cost of solar panels has declined dramatically. Solar power is renewable and it doesn't have any environmental impact. If we can implement renewable energy sources, especially solar power in each and every field from small scale industries to the defense we can reduce global warming and stop the dangers of climate Change. Solar mobile charger.

Let's Make a Solar mobile Charger today. I have uploaded a video on youtube about this project. You can watch that video at the end of this Project. It is a low-cost project. You can buy each and every parts online.

Parts of Solar mobile Charger


1. Solar panel 6V

You can buy solar panels online at cheap rates. It costs Less than 10$. The Solar panel is the most important part of this project. So buy a quality product from amazon.

2. Rechargeable Batteries 4*1.2v and holder

The output of a solar power is not constant. The main disadvantage of solar power is that it may not be able to provide enough power for our application in cloudy days. To overcome  thisproblem I have included a set of rechargeable batteries in the project design. So we can recharge the battery inside the charger  and make it available later.

3. Diodes IN4007


A diode is an electrical device allowing current to move through it in one direction with far greater ease than in the other. The most common kind of diode in modern circuit design is the semiconductor diode, although other diode technologies exist. Buy IN4007 Silicon Diode (any diode will work)

4. Capacitor 10nf

The output of a solar panel may not be constant. Any small fluctuations may affect the efficient charging of the mobile phone battery. To overcome this problem we can use a 10nf capacitor  in parallel to the circuit.

5. Switch, EP sockets, Male sockets connecting Wires

Tools to make a Solar Mobile Charger


1. Soldering Iron (optional)


Joining the leads of the components is important because any loose connection may reduce the efficiency and cause  wastage of energy. So use a soldering iron to connect leads together.

2. Multimeter (optional)


A Multimeter is an instrument designed to measure electric current, voltage, and usually resistance, typically over several ranges of value. So you can easily find the anode side of the diode, measure the output voltage, etc.
