Simple Power Bank Circuits for Mobile Phones

The article presents a 4 assorted power bank circuits using 1.5V cell and 3.7V Li-ion cell which can be built by any individual for their personal emergency cellphone charging functionality. The idea was requested by Mr. Irfan

What is a Power Bank

Power bank is a battery pack which is used to charge a cellphone outdoors during emergency situations when an AC outlet is unavailable for charging the cellphone.

Power bank modules have gained significant popularity today due to their portability and ability to charge any cell phone while traveling and during emergency requirements.

It is basically a battery bank box which is initially fully charged by the user at home, and then carried outdoors while travelling. When the user finds his cellphone or smartphone battery reaching low, he connects the power bank to his cellphone for a quick emergency topping-up of the cellphone.

How Does a Power Bank Works

I have already discussed one such emergency charger pack circuit in this blog, which used chargeable Ni-Cd cells for the intended function. Since we had 1.2V Ni-Cd cells employed in the design we could configure it to the exactly required 4.8V by incorporating 4 of these cells in series, making the design extremely compact and suitable for optimally charging all types of conventional cell phones.

However in the present request the power bank needs to be built using 3.7V Li-ion cells whose voltage parameter becomes quite unsuitable for charging a cellphone which also uses an identical battery parameter.

The problem lies in the fact that when two identical batteries or cells are connected across each other, these devices begin exchanging their power such that finally an equilibrium condition is achieved wherein both the cells or the batteries are able to attain equal amounts of charge or the power levels.

Therefore, in our case suppose if the power bank utilizing a 3.7V cell is charged fully to about 4.2V and applied to a cellphone with a drained cell level at say 3.3V, then both the counterparts would try to exchange power and reach a level equal to (3.3 4.2) / 2 = 3.75V.

But 3.75V cannot be considered the full charge level for the cell phone which is actually required to be charged at 4.2V for an optimal response.

Making a 3.7V Power Bank Circuit

The following image shows the basic structure of a power bank design:

Block Diagram

As can be seen in the above design, a charger circuit charges a 3.7V cell, once the charging is completed, the 3.7V cell box is carried by the user while traveling, and whenever the user’s cellphone battery goes down, he simply connects this 3.7V cell pack with his cellphone for topping it up quickly.

As discussed in the previous paragraph, in order to enable the 3.7V power bank to be able to provide the required 4.2V at a consistent rate until the cellphone is completely charged at this level, a step up circuit becomes imperative.

) Using a Joule Thief Circuit

If you think that the above IC 555 based power bank charger circuit looks cumbersome and an overkill, you could probably try a Joule thief concept for achieving quite the same results, as shown below:

Using 3.7V Li-Ion Cell

Here, you can try 470 ohm, 1 watt resistor for R1, and 2N2222 transistor for T1.

1N5408 for D1, and a 1000uF/25V for C2.

The LED is not required, the LED points could be used as the output terminal for charging your smartphone

The coil is made over a T18 Torroidal ferrite core, with 20:10 turns for the primary and secondary, using multistarnd (7/36) flexible PVC insulated wire. This may be implemented if the input is from a pack of 5nos of 1.5V AAA cells in parallel.

If you select Li-Ion cell at the input source, the ratio might need to be changed to 20:10 turns, 20 being at the base side of the coil.

The transistor might need a suitable heatsink in order to dissipate optimally.

Using 1.5V Li-Ion Cell

The part list will be the same as mentioned in the previous paragraph except the inductor, which will now have a 20:20 turn ratio using a 27SWG wire or any other suitable size magnet wire

) Using TIP122 Emitter Follower

The following image shows the complete design of a smartphone power bank with charger using Joule thief circuit:

Here the TIP122 along with its base zener becomes a voltage regulator stage and is used as stabilized battery charger for the attached battery. The Zx value determines the charging voltage, and its value must be selected such that it’s always a shade lower than the actual full charge value of the battery.

For example if a Li-Ion battery is used, you may select Zx as 5.8V in order prevent the battery from overcharging. From this 5.8V, the LED will drop around 1.2V, and the TIP122 will drop around 0.6V, which will ultimately allow the 3.7V cell to get around 4V, which is just around sufficient for the purpose.

For 1.5V AAA (5 in parallel), the zener could be replaced with a single 1N4007 diode with its cathode towards ground.

The LED is included for roughly indicating the full charge condition of the connected cell. When the LED lights up brightly, you may assume the cell to be fully charged.

The DC input for the above charger circuit could be acquired from your normal cellphone AC/DC charger unit.

Although the above design is efficient and recommended for an optimal response, the idea may not be easy for a newcomer to build and optimize. Therefore for users who might be OK with a slightly low tech design but much easier DIY alternative than the boost converter concept might be interested in the following configurations:

The three simple power bank circuit designs shown below utilizes minimum number of components and can be built by any new hobbyist within seconds

Although the designs look very straightforward, it demands the use of two 3.7V cells in series for the proposed power bank operations.

) Using Two Li-Ion Cells without Complex Circuit

The first circuit above makes use of a common collector transistor configuration for charging the intended cellphone device, the 1K perset is initially adjusted to enable a precise 4.3V across the emitter of the transistor.

The last diagram here depicts a charger design using an LM317 current limiter. This idea looks much impressive than the above two since it takes care of the voltage control and the current control together ensuring a prefect charging of the cellphone.

In all the four above power bank cell phone charger circuits, the charging of the two 3.7V cells can be done with the same TIP122 network which is discussed for the first boost charger design. The 5V zener should be changed to a 9V zener diode and the charging input obtained from any standard 12V/1amp SMPS adapter.

Introduction: DIY Portable Solar Powerbank (w/ 110v Outlets USB Ports)

This week we are building SlimPanel, an intelligent all-in-one solution for portable solar energy production. SlimPanel has all the needed components inside a portable 1 inch enclosure. Basically it’s a huge but portable powerbank that can power 220v/110v appliances and USB devices. It uses an Arduino for its brains and can be upgraded to work with the Intel Edison IoT.


My reason for building this project is to develop and deliver a cheaper alternative for non-renewable energy. Yes the technology has been invented but the incorporation to fit everything you need inside the Solar Panel’s enclosure is far from conventional. Rich or poor, people need electricity. The project aims to deliver electricity to areas that have no access to electricity. Other than that, the project can be of use to the consumer level. People can use it as source of electricity wherever they choose to go. In my opinion, this is an important tool for survival.

This is our investigatory project for our physics class in High School. I’m planning to enter this for this year’s Google Science fair and for Intel’s science contest. The project is still in the making and I’m build several prototypes to reach perfection.

Here’s teaser of my upcoming video tutorial:

It can power a 32 LCD TV and a Laptop too!

The project is still in the making. I’ll be updating this guide frequently until I stop and decide to build the SlimPanel v2.0. Your opinion is what matters most to me, it helps a lot on building my version 2.0.

Step 1: Google Science Fair 2015 and Intel 2015 (Research Paper)

I’m joining this in several science fair contests. Hope I win same as last year.

Cool new high production video coming soon!

Step 3: Layout of the Electronics. How It Works

Here’s a block diagram of the project. I apologize for the poor quality, I’ve used MS Paint to make the diagram. Anyway, I wrote a layman’s description below on how the system works. I wont use too much technical terms so that everyone would understand.

How It Works:

simple, power, bank, circuits, mobile, phones

1st.) The solar panel converts sunlight to electricity during day.

2nd.) The power output of the solar panel goes through a junction going to a voltage divider. The voltage divider makes the output voltage below 5 volts making it readable to the Arduino MCU’s analog pin. This voltage divider keeps track of the solar panel’s output voltage.

3rd.) After passing through the junction of the voltage divider, the power output of the solar panel enters the charge controller section of the circuit.

4th.) The MCU runs an Algorithm to control the charging cycle of the charge controller.

5th.) After the solar panel’s power output has passed through the charge controller (with the MCU’s permission), it will then go through a junction to another voltage divider. The second voltage divider (this one) is used for getting the battery’s voltage (used for power status).

6th.) After going passing through the voltage divider’s junction, the panel’s output now gets to charge the Li-ion battery pack.

7th.) The charging wont stop until the MCU has detected that the battery is full.

8th.) In addition, there’s another line (parallel to the charger’s charging line) that goes to the MOSFET load switcher. The load switcher is in charge of turning the appliances on and off automatically. It works very similar to relays. Again, the MCU has control to the load switcher. You can modify the program in step to add some cool new features to the SlimPanel.

9th.) The load switcher follows the written program. The default program will only supply electricity to the USB charger and Power Inverter if the battery has enough power (16v low cut-off). You can customize the MCU’s program to add a menu selection.

10th.) The USB Charger regulates the output power of the battery and lowers it to 5V (2A). The output then goes to the modified USB HUB. The hub extends the number of ports.

11th.) The inverter converts the Regulated 12v to AC (220v), the power used for wall appliances.

12th.) While all of these are happening simultaneously, there are other modules that are also operating. Ones like the tact buttons (for control), LCD screen (for displaying the battery status and power modes, Bluetooth module (for smartphone control and telemetry) and Wi-Fi module (Intel IoT).

Step 4: Gather the Parts Materials

Here are the parts you’ll need:

General Components:

Discrete Components:

Step 5: Might As Well Buy an Intel Edison (IoT)

The original plan was to build the project having the Edison as the MCU. I failed to do so since I’m lacking the compact breakout board for the Edison. I’m still planing to pursuit to use my original on the Version 2.0 of SlimPanel.

Step 6: Measure the Components

Grab your note pad and vernier caliper then write down the measurements.You’ll be needing them later.

Step 7: Mark the Cutouts

Plan and layout the placement of parts then draw the acquired measurements to the solar panel’s aluminum frame. Don’t use ballpens or markers they will smuge, use pencil instead.

Step 8: Grind Some Metal!

You are probably wondering how were you suppose to cut the aluminum frame. The answer: you could use your electric drill and jigsaw. First, drill a hole for the buttons and a hole at the center of the rectangular markings. Next, useyour jigsaw to finish off the remaining metal from the rectangular markings. If you have access to a jigsaw, you can use a hacksaw or you can use a rotary tool.

Step 9: Smoothen the Edges

Use your metal file to smoothen the sharp edges. Do it slowly and patiently, there’s no going back once you have filed too much metal.

Step 10: Hack the USB Hub

In this step, you’ll be needing a USB hub. As much as possible, buy the cheapest one. Quality doesn’t matter that much since we will be removing most of the components inside.

I used a USB hub to expand the number of USB ports of my USB car charger. You will need to hack your USB port to remove all the vampire components. The USB hub consumes electricity to power the IC that expands the ports, we wont be needing that since we are only tapping in the hub’s power line. Once you are done desoldering the components, solder two hookup wires to the DC power jack.

Step 11: Hack Acquire the USB Charger’s Internals

Find a 12 USB charger with a 2.1 ampere output. Some mobile devices like the latest Apple products only charge at 2.1A, they won’t work with chargers rated below 2.1 amperes.

Find a way to dismantle the USB charger. You can open most of the cheap chargers by using a screw driver to push apart the plastic division. The expensive ones usually comes off by unscrewing the tip of the 12v plug’s fuse area.

Step 12: Connect the Hub to the 12v USB Charger

Now, solder the wires of your hacked USB hub to your USB charger’s USB port (note: I removed the female plug from the charger). Next, solder two hookup wires to the charger’s 12v input.

Step 13: Mount the Hub to the Panel

Hot glue the USB hub together with the 12v charger’s circuitry on the solar panel.

Step 14: Mount the AC Sockets

These AC sockets were supposed to be snap-ons although the double wall aluminum frame was too thick. The latches didn’t work so I hot glued them too. For the wiring of the outlet, both of them are soldered in parallel.

Step 15: Disassemble the Inverter

I you happen to have a 12v inverter lying around, you can use it for the project. If you don’t, you could buy one from eBay or Amazon. They don’t cost that much, if you buy the right ones. Their price range lies around 5-25. As much as possible, buy the 75W version, anything higher than that will consume too much electricity and will drain the battery faster.

simple, power, bank, circuits, mobile, phones

When you happen to find or buy one, check it if it works and find if it’s fit for your appliance’s voltage. Next, dismantle the inverter to get the circuit inside. Be sure to exercise caution, some inverters contain charged capacitors that could cause electric shocks. You can dismantle the inverter by unscrewing the fuse head found at the tip of the 12v plug of your inverter.

Step 16: Connect the Sockets to the Inverter

The wires that you’ve soldered to the AC sockets can now be soldered to the AC output of the 12v inverter.

Step 17: Mount the LCD

I bought this cheap 8×1 character SPI LCD from e-Gizmo for P90 (2.00). It was perfect since the LCD was able to fit within the solar panel’s frame. You can mount it by simply using hot glue, same to the tact buttons.

Step 19: Do Some Outdoor Testing (Getting the Voltage)

Aside from using my solar panel’s datasheet as reference, I thought it would be wise to do some testing to see if the values of the datasheet were accurate. It turns out that the solar panel’s max (no load) voltage was 3v higher than the one specified in the datasheet. Acquiring the max voltage is very important, it dictates how the number of battery-cells your solar panel can charge. You will also need the max voltage later for constructing the voltage divider of the charge controller circuit later on.

simple, power, bank, circuits, mobile, phones

Step 20: Build a Dual 12v Regulator

I plan to use 5 Li-ion cells connected in series. When connected in series, the batteries will yield a max voltage of 21v. The inverter and USB charger will only operate at voltages ranging from 11-14v. In order for us to use the appliances safely, we would have to regulate the supply that goes to the charger and inverter. In this project, I used and designed a linear regulator since I was not able to get hold of a Switching Regulator/ Buck Converter. This is a huge step down for me, although I’m still planning to replace this Linear regulator with a much more efficient switching regulator, if ever I get hold of one.

If ever you chose to build the linear regulator, you can download the zip file below. The zip file contains everything you need: the schematic diagram, the Printable PCB Layout (PDF) and the raw fritzing file.

Step 21: Assemble the Dual Regulator

In assembling the linear regulator, bend the transistor and regulator’s pins facing forward. When you solder the tansistors and regulators, the metal (heatsink) portion must be facing upwards. Be sure to use a mylar insulator and plastic washer for the 7805 regulators and the TIP35C transistors. If you don’t have one with you, you can simply cover the 7805 with a thick peice of masking tape (no need for the TIP35C transistors). Now screw both transistors to the heatsink, leaving the regulators unscrewed. The transistors do not need insulation since the metal plates are both connected to a common rail, the regulators on the other hand are connected to the opposite voltage of the rail so they need to be isolated from the heatsink. The regulators do not need to be screwed to the heatsink since they don’t dissipate too much heat.

Step 22: A Better Alternative for the Regulator

If you are patient enough to wait for the shipping, I would suggest buying a buck converter. Buck converters are much more efficient than linear regulators.

Step 23: Connect the Regulator to the Other Components

Connect the output of the regulator to the inverter and to the 12v USB charger. Leave the input hanging. For now, I’m using epoxy to mount the heatsink. A Smart suggestion would be to screw the heatsink directly to the Aluminum frame of the panel.

Step 24: Build the Charge Controller Circuit

This is the heart of the project. The charge controller controls everything. It regulates the voltage and current coming from your solar panels which is placed between a solar panel and a battery. It is used to maintain the proper charging voltage on the batteries. As the input voltage from the solar panel rises, the charge controller regulates the charge to the batteries preventing any over charging.

What’s The Advantage of Building One Instead of Buying One?

Pre-made charge controllers are meant to work directly out of the box. Yes, a pre-manufactured controller is easier to use but it has its limitations and that would be the lack if customizability. The answer to that is to build a DIY Charge Controller, having an Arduino as its brain. We all know what Arduino’s could do, pretty much anything I guess. If ever you’d want to set a different voltage cut-off, you can just program it with your laptop. If you would like to add other functions, you could program the it do do what you want as well.

This guide won’t explain the detailed process of building a charge controller since it is to broad to teach, instead you can visit these well documented instructables of Debashish (Deba168) on building one from scratch:

BTW, In this project, I used the charge controller design from the fist link.

Step 25: Add a Balancing Charger Circuit (Soon to Upgrade)

Recently, I got help from Adam Munich in designing a better charger (his design) for the SlimPanel project. The balancing charger is designed to charge Lithium batteries, Li-ion to be specific. It’s designed to keep track of each Li-ion cell’s voltage. I was not able to implement the balancing charger to my current version of SlimPanel since I was not able to get hold of the shipment in time. I’m planning to add it to my 2nd version of the project. Since lithium batteries are very sensitive to draining, a lithium balancing charger is recommended to prevent explosions. The balancing charger circuit makes sure that each lithium cell receives an equal charge distribution.

Step 26: Alternatives for the Controller

There’s a wide variety to chose from. If you don’t have enough experience to build an Arduino version, you can always choose to buy a ready made controller.

Here’s a link to Amazon’s top selling controllers: Solar Charge Controllers

Step 27: Assemble Li-ion the Battery Pack

Recently I found a store that sells lithium 18650 Lithium-Ion batteries for 2 each. Lithium batteries are the most efficient so far. They charge faster, have a higher current discharge rate, has great size to capacity ratio and is relatively cheap. Each cell rated at 3.7v (2000mAh). I soldered four of them in series to build a 14.8v (2000mAh) battery pack. Be sure to solder them fast, otherwise things could go wrong once you heat them up too long.

Advantages of Li-ion:

As seen on the graph above, Lithium-ion batteries have a sudden discharge characteristic. Unlike Lead Acid Batteries, they would still maintain the same voltage until the battery runs low.

Step 28: Hot Surface Battery Hazard (Fix)

Lithium Batteries are sensitive to heat, being exposed to extreme heat could cause explosions. The solar panel, when exposed under sunlight, could heat-up up to 100° C. My solution for this was too add a huge 12v snail fan to cool the the surface where the batteries are mounted on. The fan is connected directly to the solar panel. The fan will turn whenever the solar panel produces electricity from sunlight. There no need for temperature sensors, I’m against overkilling prototypes.

Step 29: Hook Them Up Together

Now that you have all the parts mounted within the solar panel’s frame, you can now connect everything together. Just follow the block diagram.

Step 30: Construct the Back Panel

Cut a piece of foam board then use it to cover the rear area of the panel. You can either screw it or hot glue it to the solar panel’s frame.

Guide to choosing the best living room furniture.

If you have just recently moved into a new home, then you would probably understand the actual difficulty of having to buy furniture that will fully make your house a home. While most people end up buying more than what they set out to buy, in other cases it is just not enough. It is always best to start with buying minimal pieces in the beginning and then progress to buying more in time. For that you can start with all the day to day furniture and the absolute necessities for the house like a sofa, a bed, chairs, a dining table and other kinds of furniture to furnish the living space. You could then go on to add elements to your entire living space from there.

Things to look at before buying furniture online.

While most living room furniture are entirely based on your requirements, the overall spacing, the furniture designs and what you would want to add in it, it’s also important that you identify the actual focal point of the living room. The idea is to choose the living room furniture that can go on to make for great conversation areas. It should also help to take care of the possible traffic flow within the living room. You can find the best living room furniture online if you look in the right places.

  • A comfortable sofa set is definitely a critical investment for any home. For that, it’s alright to even splurge on a good sofa set as you might ideally spend a lot of time on it or otherwise. A Sofa should probably be the best investment for any small home.
  • A center table, dining table or even a coffee table is key to amp up the living space. You can opt for either a minimalistic or a bulky wooden one. That entirely depends on the space in the house. The furniture designs can essentially vary to match the overall theme of the house.
  • If your living room tends to double up as a TV room, then you may want a good side table and other cabinets to keep in each space.
  • A dining table and the chair can essentially be the only critical requirements in a dining room. Keeping in mind the size of the family or the number of people you tend to host you can opt for a 4 seater table or a 6 seater dining table.
