Charge Any Phone Without Its Charger!





Introduction: Charge Any Phone Without Its Charger!

Step 1: What's Needed

What you need for this is a USB (broken or not , just make sure it's long enough), you will also need the phone you want to charge.Im using a samsung SGH-T809(old phone, didn't have its proprietary charger). The last thing you need is something to plug the USB into, I recommended a laptop but a wall outlet will work fine.

Step 2: Step 1

Now cut the USB in half so that you have the USB , you can throw the other half away. I used scissors because I didn't have a wire stripper. Your gonna wanna strip the red and black wires, the green and white wires are not gonna be used.

Step 3: Step 2

Depending on what phone your using , the battery pins may be different . For me they were push down pins. Now your gonna wanna take the wire (red and black) , Match the pins with the wires(red with positive and black with negative). Once you figured out where the belong, bend the wire (metal part) onto the wire (this is what I did because mine has push down pins). Now take the wire and try to slide it under the pin (there should be a little space under the pins).

Step 4: Step 3

Now put the battery in, it should be a little hard to put in since the pins have something under them. Once it's in the wires won't move at all (or atleast that's what happened for me).

Step 5: Step 4

Plug it into your USB port that has power and your phone should light up or do something to indicate power, mine doesn't so I have to press the power button. It should turn on and there you go , you have a makeshift charger!

    MetroPCS zmaxPRO. Built in battery.. ... how do i charge this devise without the usb-c cable? Only provided with a regular android usb?

    What about a Alcatel onetouch, in which the battery cannot be removed? Please let me know... In really big need!

    drop the phone on the floor a few times and the battery will get out (i have an alcatel pixi)

    All batteries come out just take your unscrew your back and basically follow the instructions although it might be a lil different

    There's no such thing as a phone that you can't get to the battery. It's always accessible just depends on if it's worth the effort to get to it.
    It's also possible to use a different phone's battery, some wire, tape and a little ingenuity.
