My PDA phone charges through USB 5.0 Volt. Is there a circuit, which will charge my PDA Phone by SOLAR cells? Answered

Thank you in advance.

Thank you Steve. I have seen this link before I published my enquiry. But since the OP was only 3.7 V; I was not sure this Solar charger could charge my PDA phone (HTC). Since you assured me that it will charge, I shall assemble the components and give it a try. Cheers. Sree...

Where do you get 3.7V output from ? The device is a boost converter, and turns 3.7V input up to 5V. Read the FAQ on the Minty Boost

"Very likely! A list of devices is on the front page and is updated all the time. If you find a new device that it does/doesn't work with, please post on the forum or email me (thanks!) Nearly all USB-charging devices and any device that charges with 5V power (up to 250mA+ 400mA+ with v2.0 of the kit) can be used.

Thank you , once again, Steve. I wasn't aware if the Minty Boost was really Voltage charge pump. My misunderstanding. I stand corrected. Kumar. PS: that's my daughter's Pic you see on the left, isn't she so cute !
