Introduction: DIY 5V USB Portable Solar Power Charger

About: Awesome Electronics Tutorials, Projects and How To´s

In this episode of DIY or Buy I will have a closer look at a commercial 5V USB portable solar power charger. After measuring its output power and pretty much "short reviewing" the product, I will try to make my own DIY version that should cost around the same while outputting more power! Let's get started!

Step 1: Watch the Video!

Make sure to watch the video! It will give you all the information you need to create your own solar power charger. I will present you some additional information during the next steps though.

Step 2: Order Your Components!

Step 3: 3D Print the Frame!

Here you can find the .stl file for the frame. 3D print it 10 times!

Step 4: Do the Resin Encapsulating and Wiring!

This is pretty straightforward. Just do it the same way as I showed it in the video.

Step 5: Success!

You did it! You just made your own 5V USB solar power charger!
