This time i am here with a simple but useful bicycle mobile charger .
You charge any of your cell phone while cycling and all this you can easily make at home.
It's not so expensive but don't i think the whole setup will cost you around 20 - 30 dollars.
If you are not familiar with electronics you can give the circuit i gave to a electrician and some mechanics part to your local workshop it's a matter of minutes for them. But as far as i think
This is a simple electronics and mechanics project .It uses a AC motor to produce ac current and then the power is supplied to the power HUB and then it's converted to 5 volts DC .
Step 1: Parts!
You don't need much stuff some of them are common things you can get them anywhere!
All you need is:
- An AC motor or DC one (But i prefer to use an AC motor of a normal small size because in comparison to an AC motor and DC motor should be bigger! you can get them form an old printer or an DVD burner's slide motor which i am using ! the other one specifically the big one in the given picture above could also be used both of them are AC motors! Use a big one if you are willing to use a DC motor )
- Some long wires.
- LM 7805 LINEAR REGULATOR.
- Soldering equipments.
- One 1000uf capacitor , one 10uf capacitor , one ceramic capacitor of 0.001uf , 102.
- One 100 ohms resistor.
- IN 4007 DIODES 4PCS
- One connecter jack as per your mobile's input.
