Rechargeable (homemade) Power Bank (super Easy)

Step 1: Intro

This is my first tutorial so go easy on me xD. Ok I made this charger because tired of being with out music (ipod) on school.because my school does not have power plugs.

Step 2: Partss!

Ok we need: 3x ultrafire 3.7v batteries or 3x 4 volts batteries 1xcar cell phone charger 1x toggle switch Pair of cables 1x rca female plug (you will see its use later) Tools: Hot glue Scissors Black tape Pliers

Step 3: Building This

Now comes the good part.connect the 3 batteries in series if they are 3.7v they shoud give 11.1v out.now take apart the car charger.connect positive cable of batterie to center stem of the toggle switch.then connect the negative cable of the battery to the car charger and the rca female plug.connect the car charger positive cable to the right stem of the toggle switch and the positive cable of the rca female plug to the left stem of the toggle switch.

Step 4: Done

My name is Caleb Escobar Ríos from Puerto Rico.I hope this is of help to you.this is my first Instructable tell me how I did and comment if you dont understend or need help.thanks

    It is easier to charge all you need to do is to buy any charger of your choice and you will need to buy the same charging port of the charger so you will need to connect the charging port directly to the batteries (no I.c needed)

    It need 11.1v and above to charge properly

    Can I use your idea of making a power bank for my Science Investigatory Project? And of course if you agree I'd give you credit for part of my work since it's just the idea of building it is the only part that I'd like to use. Is that fine with you? :)

    Brilliant! A proper regulator, modified calculations....

    Bros and sis don't make this it could be dangerous because most 18560 batteries are not protected. I made this in a time that I was 12 and didn't understand much about the dangers of li ions. Hope nobody got hurt. Go search for another tutorial, this is no good.

    I think something's will go wrong, as you are connecting cells in series so its voltage will increase current will be same i.e. capacity is 2200mA but rate of charge flow will be triple. I think you have to connect cells in parallel to improve capacity to 6600 mA and voltage will be acceptable to charge mobiles..

    The capacity of an individual li-on of this type and size is more or less 2200mAh. In a series of three, the total comes out to around 6600mAh.

    Series ups the voltage, not capacity.

    Parallel ups the capacity, not voltage.

    Instead of rca for charging can't we add a microusb port ?
