whats so hard about charging liithium ion batteries? Answered

i am charging my cellphone. its an android. the charger for it says the output is 5v 700 mA.
i am using a  wind turbine or solar panel or both connected to a 5v regulator. and some capacitors.
should work right?
i will keep a close eye on the phone checking the phones battery indicator to see when it is completely charged to avoid overcharge

If set up properly and regulated well enough to offer a consistent 5V your wind turbine should have no problem charging your phone. Also assuming the system if offering enough amperage for the charge circuit to begin charging.

They aren't hard to charge just fragile and liable to do things you don't want like burst into flames if charged too quickly or over charged etc.

I doubt your wind turbine will have enough control over the output for this idea to work.
