Have you ever been out and about in the middle of your day when your phone warns you that the battery is below 20%? Yeah, cue the nomophobia. Keeping your phone fully charged is one way to avoid the anxiety of being without your precious. However, when you experience a power outage or can’t find an outlet, you may get a bit desperate for that sweet, sweet power. Here are four ingenious ways to charge your phone and stay connected no matter what.
1. Solar Chargers
Instead of just “charging your phone” you could “charge your phone using the immense power of the sun.” That sounds way cooler. Not to mention, a solar charger is just damn convenient. Several different brands and sizes are on the market to fit any solar-powered need. No outlets needed, sun sold separately.
2. Hand Crank
If you are looking for a way to burn a few extra calories while simultaneously charging your phone, this method is for you. A hand crank charger is a great option to have if you live in an area prone to blackouts. Simply hook in your phone and spin away like you are a legendary DJ, playing the show of your life. There are a few different hand crank chargers sold, so shop around and compare features. Some brands may be easier to crank than others.
3. Piece of Fruit
This is likely the most “out-of-the-box” method, and should really only be used in dire emergencies. Remember the potato clock you probably built in 5th grade? You can create a circuit using some zinc strips, pennies, and a piece of fruit. You aren’t likely to fill your battery using this method, so it isn’t the most efficient method, but still creative.
For those on the go, you may want to consider a “Smartbag” that boasts several USB and power outlets that can charge all your devices, even your laptop. It’s also theft proof, as it will tell you where it is located if you left it somewhere. Not only will you never leave without your books, but you can also keep your battery full and ready at all times.
