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!

    Hi Everyone
    I just tried this in the bb z10 blackberry .
    the USB port fell out .
    I did the store trick to the battery - I can't believe it !!!!
    It's starting up!!!
    I'm really really amazed!!!!!
    ITs been awful with no cell phone working but I need a newer cell phone the bb is outdated but good for email web browsing .
    now how do I fix the sim card tray that has a tray stuck in it.
    I how do I get volume back up and working?
    PLease let me know - I'd rather not take this in for repair. Waste of money.
    I'd like to get a new cell instead use this z10 bb as a backup .
    also how do we do this with IPhone 3gs ? Mine I need info off of the frame pushed apart with the inside battery expanding in the 3gs.
    THank you for your help!!!

    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.
