Every once in a while you get the problem of your cell phone running out of batteries just when you haven't got a charger at hand.

This afternoon it happened to me,.... Damn empty battery and no charger for miles... At least that I know of.

So what do you do ? Build your own, in,.... 1 minute.

Step 1: Find the pinout of your phone

This instructable will only work with some phones, because you can't imitate the most plugs that are used to charger mobile phones, but with my Sony Ericsson it works fine because of the way the phone is charged.

To find the pinout of your phone, you could use Google, or use ( the one I used, with help of google Pinouts ). Hit Ctrl + F and go look for you phone pinout. If you can't find it, you'll have a problem and won't be able to continue, but you usually will.

My phone has a 'standard ?' Sony Ericsson plug so it was easy to find. I used the image below, disgarding the Datacable part,... which it think can be pretty usefull :).

Mitt Romney presented himself at Wednesday night's debate as &quot;a man of <a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="Coach Outlet"><strong>Coach Outlet</strong></a> steadiness and constancy.&quot;But one response the former Massachusetts governor gave, on a crucial issue <a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="Coach Outlet Store"><strong>Coach Outlet Store</strong></a> of economic policy, might not help bolster that image.Asked at the outset of the <a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="Coach Outlet Factory"><strong>Coach Outlet Factory</strong></a> debate whether he would allow Italy to fail (meaning he would allow its government to <a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="Coach Factory"><strong>Coach Factory</strong></a> default on its debt) and whether the United States has a stake in the ongoing eurozone crisis, Romney <a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="Coach Outlet Online"><strong>Coach Outlet Online</strong></a> said he would take a hands-off approach. &quot;Europe is able to take care of their own <a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="Coach Outlet Stores"><strong>Coach Outlet Stores</strong></a> problems,&quot; he said.Romney added that he opposed bailing out banks on either side of the <a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="Coach"><strong>Coach</strong></a> Atlantic. &quot;There will be some who say here that banks in the U.S. that have Italian debt, that we ought to help <a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="Coach Factory Outlet Online"><strong>Coach Factory Outlet Online</strong></a> those, as well,&quot; he said. <br><br><a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="Cheap Coach"><strong>Cheap Coach</strong></a><br><a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="Discount Coach"><strong>Discount Coach</strong></a><br><a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/coach-classic-bags-c-2.html" title="Coach Bags"><strong>Coach Bags</strong></a><br><a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/coach-crossbody-c-3.html" title="Coach Crossbody"><strong>Coach Crossbody</strong></a><br><a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/coach-kristin-bags-c-5.html" title="Coach Kristin Bags"><strong>Coach Kristin Bags</strong></a><br><a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/coach-madison-bags-c-6.html" title="Coach Madison Bags"><strong>Coach Madison Bags</strong></a><br><a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/coach-op-art-bags-c-7.html" title="Coach OP Art Bags"><strong>Coach OP Art Bags</strong></a><br><a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/coach-poppy-bags-c-8.html" title="Coach Poppy Bags"><strong>Coach Poppy Bags</strong></a><br><a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/coach-purses-outlet-c-9.html" title="Coach Purses Outlet"><strong>Coach Purses Outlet</strong></a><br><a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/coach-satchels-sale-c-10.html" title="Coach Satchels Sale"><strong>Coach Satchels Sale</strong></a><br><a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/coach-tote-handbags-c-11.html" title="Coach Tote Handbags"><strong>Coach Tote Handbags</strong></a><br><a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/"><strong>http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/</strong></a><br><br><br>&quot;My view is no, no, no. We <a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="Coach Factory Online"><strong>Coach Factory Online</strong></a> do not need to step in to bail out banks either in Europe or banks here in the U.S. that may have Italian debt.&quot;Sounds clear enough. But asked a related, though different, question at a debate last month -- what he'd do if a Eurozone crisis put the global financial system on the brink of <a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="Coach Factory Outlet"><strong>Coach Factory Outlet</strong></a> collapse -- Romney, in contrast with his rivals, sounded much more open to getting involved.&quot;Clearly, if you <a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="Coach Handbags"><strong>Coach Handbags</strong></a> think the entire financial system is going to collapse, you take action to keep that from happening,&quot; he <a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="Coach Purse"><strong>Coach Purse</strong></a> said. &quot;In the case of Europe right now, they are looking at what's happening with Greece. Are they going to <a href="http://www.coachfactoryonlinesale.com/" title="Coach Online"><strong>Coach Online</strong></a> default on their debt, are they not? That's a decision which I would like to have input on if I were president of the United States and try and prevent the kind of contagion that would affect the U.S. banking system and put us at risk.&quot; He added: &quot;I'm not interested in bailing out individual institutions that have wealthy people that want to make sure that their shares are worth something. I am interested in making sure that we preserve our financial system, our currency, the banks across the entire country.&quot; How it would be possible to preserve &quot;banks across the entire country&quot; without aiding individual banks was left unsaid.Given public opposition to bailouts, it's perhaps not surprising that Romney might want to move away from his apparent earlier openness to taking action.
or put the battery in a fridge for a few minutes... that will buy you some talktime too
I think you need to warm it, not cool it. Who can build this thing in a minute!??
Warming batteries decreaces their "life-time" but cooling their "standby-time"
whats mcgyver?
a guy on an old 90's tv show. he can make/do anything with common hose hold matearials. like once, he fixed a crack in a tank of sulfuric acid with choclate.
Mcgyver was a guy on a tv show that could make anything out of what he had. Like he could make an airplane out of anything he could get his hands on.
If you're in a bind and only need a minute or two, try rubbing the battery with your hands until it's relatively warm. A woman I told this to actually used that hint in an emergency and was able to call her daughter. Not an instructable, but a helpful hint.
Project in the background is a 8x8 led display with a PIC 16F628. There was no risk of blowing up the phone ( i hope ). Because de original charger isn't current limited, so that has to be inside the phone. And since the 770mAh battery is normally charged in ±1 hour, It uses about 1A. So without an coolblock usually an 7805 won't be able to give the current and burn out.
Cool, you are lucky that the voltage regulator is smoked, and not your phone. (Bolletje Pepernoten! van AH! Stomme Nederlander :P)
That project in the background looks like a bunch of flash circuit capacitors wired up, I am working on a similar project myself
Cool, now if I could just wire it up to use a longer lasting battery...
