"We all hate it when our phone battery starts draining out of nowhere, but what if there was a way to prevent this problem. Well there is, I introduce to you the Solar-Cell, a story of how the phone cover met the solar panel. Not only did I choose this project to stop my phone battery from constantly draining, but to spark the idea of environmentally friendly mobile charging that is convenient wherever you go. To sum up the results, I can tell you, it is possible to charge your phone and save the environment at the same time. It may not seem important for one phone to stop using the outlet for power, but imagine millions of others using this expedient device. Continue to find out how this amazing combination powered a phone. "

  1. Very inventive device you managed to create. Do these types of phone charger already exist?
    Good understanding of how solar cell charge. Keep up the good work.

  2. Great idea and well carried through. You had a lot of information about the theory as well as how you actually made the cover. Great illustrations. I wonder how much of the time a person could have the phone in the sunlight to do the charging. How long would it take in the light to charge the battery. Is there a way a hiker could attach the phone to the backpack to charge while hiking?
    I hope you return next year with another good project.
