Hi, when you are stranded in a place where there is no electricity and your phone is running out of charge and you want to make an emergency call!,
Tadaaa!! here are the hacks for charging your phone without your charger or electricity.
I live in Chennai and I used this hack to make an emergency call when we were affected by flood previous year, There was power cut continuously for about 120 hours(5 days) during floods. This hack had worked out for me so I'm sharing with you.
Note: *Using both hacks you can charge up-to 20%(single time) on an average. You can get that much amount of charge even from used batteries for feature phones ( but mAh<1100), But for smart phones you need to put some EXTRA like using NEW long life batteries.
(*)-Values mentioned may vary depending upon the mAh of phone, Type of battery and adapter(if) that you use.

Step 1: CARRY WITH YOU
- 9V BATTERY
- CAR PHONE CHARGER
- USB CABLE
- KEY(I used wire)
Step 2: CONNECT PHONE WITH CAR ADAPTER
Polarity of terminals of car adapter is clearly shown in the pictures, bottom BUTTON type is +(positive) while side RING type is - (negative).
Connect one wire to the negative terminal to close circuit with battery OR USE KEY TO CONNECT NEGATIVE TERMINAL WITH BATTERY.
Step 4: IF YOU USE KEY
Step 5: CLOSE THE CIRCUIT, CHARGING!!
Connect those terminals with 9 V battery closing the circuit with either wire or with key.
IT'S CHARGING AND NOW YOU CAN MAKE YOUR EMERGENCY CALL!
Step 6: HACK #2:USING AA SIZED BATTERIES
If you don't have 9 V battery don't worry and try to get some AA sized batteries (I recommend Alkaline or heavy duty) from your other devices like cameras, mp3 player, flash light,etc. and start charging your phone using the below instructions.
Step 7: WHAT YOU NEED
- 3*AA BATTERIES
- CHARGING CABLE
- CONDUCTING METAL PIECES
Step 8: CONNECT THEM IN SERIES CONFIGURATION!
Step 9: ATTACH THOSE METAL PIECES ON TOP AND BOTTOM SO AS TO MAKE IT IN SERIES CONFIGURATION
Before connecting, cut the usb edge.
follow the pictures for instructions,
I have connected OTG and then connected it using spare usb if you want you can also follow the same to save your charging cable from cutting it. Even if you have no other option than cutting your charging cable you can Fix it using SUGRU after usage.
After cutting, Inside USB: RED is +(POSITIVE) while BLACK is -(NEGATIVE) connect them correspondingly to the battery terminals.
Step 11: CHARGING!!
This hack can give you enough amount of charge in your phone with which you can make an emergency call. Remember, I wouldn’t go around charging your phone using this method on a daily basis but in an emergency or a no other choice situation this is a great alternative way to charge your cell phone.
