Buy a charger for your phone from a $1 dollar store.

....which is not going to be "best" by any means, a 7805 needs at least 7V on the input to get 5 out, and phones take 100mA to charge, so you are wasting power needlessly, not forgetting the transformer's dissipation. Why not pay the dollar ?

how much power do you really waste? you waste 2v+ at 1.5 amps, so that's 3 W wasted and really, how often do you charge your phone? 1-2 hours every week? if you used it for a year, you would waste 336W every year, and that costs: $0.06
