    I use a hand-crank charger to charge a battery pack. Neither my phone or my mp3 player like the inconsistent power provided from the hand-crank, but the battery pack could care less. Once during power outage I used one battery pack to top off another battery pack and then recharged the dead battery pack while recharged pack charged phone. I don’t want to wreck $200 phone to see if $10 charger will work.

    And so youre going to crank it for an hour straight to charge that phone? And no it wont break your phone as long as its the correct voltage and amperage. “Its physics electricity isnt all the same”? Dude go back to school!

    can you just charge a capacitor and then flip the switch to charge a phone?

  7. benukysz says:

    its called physics you cant do that you are breaking your android phone becouse electrisity is not the same all the time you idiot dont do this peaple it will brake you phone in few days or hours you are stupid

    What stops this from working on an iPhone?

  11. mrfuzzles92 says:

    Wait a minute!!! doesn’t that crank put out AC current… Google.. checking..
    YES IT DOES. so if its charging its because there’s some diode in the phone. turning it into DC. i wouldn’t rely on that to work for long. make a rectifying circuit and then hook the phone into that.

  17. mangoismycat says:

    couldnt you put a resistor to make sure it doesn’t go over 5v?

  18. FeyeThom says:

    Lol, that’s awesome. Anyone got a tutorial for me?

    You can pick these things up a similar (more convenient) item on eBay for a couple of squids. This seems like a fun little project to pass a bit of time though. I was planning on working something similar from a dynamo connected to a bike wheel.

    If anyone’s interested in the item I mentioned, you can find it using search terms such as “usb dynamo” or “wind up charger”.

    Damn I had a flashlight that had a magnet that you skook back and forth…but it broke a long time ago. But Ben Heck reminds me of…ME!

    Bre Pettis made a charger using magnets mounted on a bicycle rim with leads attached on the frame to charge USB devices while riding the bike. I think one of those bicycle exercise foot machines or even a stationary olds school exercise bike would not only be a good way to charge the phone, you could maybe even write some software to the phone scores your virtual bike ride for calories burned, etc, while charging it at the same time. Interesting idea.

    So I can still use my htc evo after the apocalypse then?

  24. BrainfuckEmt says:

  25. PRlMEHUNTER says:
