This instructable will teach you how to make your very own solar powered USB charger out of an Altoids Smalls tin. It is an eco-friendly way to conserve energy. The Solar Panel I am using for this project has a dial on it so you can chose your output number of volts, therefore I am able to use it for a wide range of electronics depending on how many volts they take to charge. Not only can you use this to charge your phones/IPods on the go, but you can also connect LEDs, fans and basically any thing that comes with a USB connector. I hope you enjoy this instructable and please remember to favorite and vote!
