We have featured many nice power banks and solar chargers, but if you like to make something by yourself, you may also like to make your own solar charger.
Andrea Biffi, a member of instructables came up with the awesome eco-friendly project. As we can see from the images, the solar charger consists of a USB hub with four switches for its four USB ports and two solar panels. Inside, the solar charger also comes with a 3200mAh AA battery as backup battery in order to store energy, while four USB ports allow you to charge your smartphone or other mobile devices with ease. The maker has published all the making steps and needed tools and materials. If you’re interesting, jump to Andrea’s instructables page for detailed steps.
