We Love spending time on our Smartphones either playing Games, Listening Music, interacting with Our Friends on Social Media Apps. But these Smartphone consumes lots of Battery Power and our smartphone battery drains very quickly. So we have to charge our phone everytime. Nowadays, Some Smartphone companies have introduced Wireless Chargers, but they are quite expensive and everyone can't afford it. So why not make our own Wireless charger at Home.
Step 1: Order Parts
These can be acquired from Amazon online shop.
- Wireless Charger PC-BA
- Solder Iron
- Stationary Knife
- Heat Shrink Tubes
- iPhone Charging Receiver Pad
- Android Charging Receiver Pad
- Solder Stand
Items locally available at home – Card board, compass (accompanied by pencil), super-glue, matchstick), connecting wires, enabled handset to charge by means of wireless charger.
Step 2: Proceed With Wireless Charger PC-BA Construction
- When Wireless Charger Printed Circuit-Board Assembly is available, follow instructions to open the box.
- Care should be taken while opening the box not to hamper any of the wires.
- If the circuit is alright, put a cardboard sheet above the charger coils. Put ON the circuit.
- Put the mobile handset at the top of the card board. Make the testing of the charger circuit.
- Proceed only if the charger works well, if it doesn’t, return to the dealer and exchange with another one.
- At authenticity of the product activity, disconnect the circuit.
- Do not disconnect status LED board from the main PC-BA.
- Make extensions of original charging coil connections by means of connecting wires. Use copper wires.
- Insulate joints using heat-shrink tubes.
Note: Keep note of the connections as you’ll need to reconnect them back.
Step 3: Make Enclosure for Circuit Board
- Using a cardboard material, Make a drawing of a circle 10 cm diameter.
- Put the circuit at either the sides and draw a mark of the boundary as illustrated above.
- By the help of a stationary knife, perform cuttings of the cardboard at the marked drawings.
- Create 2 similar pieces.
- Trim a lengthy piece from a flexible cardboard having a width of around 2 centimeter.
- Using super glue, adhere the piece at the boundary of one other pieces to come up with a bottom base.
Step 4: Fit the Circuit unto the Base
- Put hot glue on the base of the cardboard.
- Use images above to adhere the circuit board onto the two sided tape.
- Make observation of the position of status LED's on the phase of the board.
- Make markings and trim required slits at the boundaries of the bottom base.
Step 5: Perform Re-connections of the Coils
- Make cuttings of two small strips having width of one centimeter from the flexible card board.
- Adhere both strips opposite to one another at the inner boundary of the base.
- Put the coils closer to the circuit board.
- Singly, solder the wires unto the circuit board in exact sequence in which they were before.
- Check the connections to ascertain they’re in their right positions.
Step 6: Close the Coils
- Trim a circle of 10 cm diameter.
- Use the circle to enclose the circuit board.
- Put hot glue unto the card board.
- Adhere the charging coils unto the 2 sided tape.
- Look for the loci of the coils in a manner that they’re at the middle of the card board.
- Seemingly cut a card board piece that will be used to cover the micro USB port.
- Using brown color paper, close the joints.
- Close the whole structure using superglue to seal the joints.
Note: Use thin cardboard at the top so that the wireless charger can work.
