Simple DC Cellphone Charger Circuit

It is estimated that there are probably more cell phones in India than the number of toilets present here. Astonishing, but true. A simple DC cell phone charger circuit is one of those mates of cell phone that cannot be ignored because a cell phone would be dead without a charger.


Normally a DC cell phone charger circuit come as an integral part of a cell phone package and we use it in conjunction with our AC mains supply.

But what happens if your cell phone gasps for power in the middle of a journey, probably when you are driving or biking away on a middle of a highway?

A very simple yet reasonably effective DC to DC cell phone charger circuit is discussed in this article, which can be easily built at home even by a layman.

Though the proposed charger circuit won't charge your cell phone at the rate equal to a normal AC to DC charger, nevertheless it will complete the function without fail and won't betray you for sure.

The proposed DC cellphone charger circuit can be understood with the following points:

We all know the general specs of a cell phone battery, it's around 3.7 volts and 800 mAH.

It means the cell phone would require at around 4.5 volts for initiating the charging process.

However a Li-Ion battery which is employed inside cell phones are pretty sensitive to bad voltages and may just blow off causing serious life and property issues.

Keeping this in mind the cell phone internal circuitry is specifically dimensioned very strictly.

The parameters just won't permit any voltage which may be even slightly out of the range of the battery specifications.

The use of the versatile IC 7805 in the circuit answers the above issue just perfectly, such that the charging voltage at its output becomes ideally suitable for charging the cell phone battery.

A high wattage resistor connected at the output of the IC makes sure that the current to the cell phone stays well within the specified range, though this might have not been a problem anyway, the cell phone would just refuse to charge if the resistor was not included.


Simple DC Cellphone Charger Circuit
Pictorial Diagram


You can use this DC cellphone charger circuit for charging you cell phone during emergencies when there's no mains AC outlets, the circuit may be powered from any 12 volt lead acid battery or similar DC power source



Parts List

R1 = 5 Ohm, 2 Watt,
C1, C2 = 10uF/ 25V,
D1 = 1N4007,
IC1 = 7805, mounted on a heatsink,
Battery, any 12 volt automobile battery

Dear sir. Please tell me
that what alterations
should i do, to charge two
mobiles at a time from
this circuit.
Could i give the parallel connection with the existing mobile charging pin. As ic 7805 is capable of giving 1A out put. Please guide me

Dear sir, i read the article in your link. But the writer says about current more than 2A . In my case if i put two mobiles to charge, it may be less than 1A. Therefore i think , what happens if i put another 5 ohm resistor and 10uf capacitor in parallel to the existing output of ic 7805

Hi Raja,

2Amp is the max current rating, that doesn't mean that the cell phone will draw the whole current, it will use only the required amount.

You will need to increase the wattage of the resistor, not the value, one capacitor is enough at the output.

Dear sir , an electrician told me that "In about 80% of the cases the reason for decreased battery performance is a sulphate buildup on the plates . And pulse or equalization charging can stop Sulphation . What does its mean ?do you have any circuit about it ? and please also give me an idea that what will the effect of "daily use and charge process " on inverter battery .

Hi Pankaj,

That's quite true, use of PWM controlled battery charging is recommended for tackling this problem with lead acid batteries.

I will surely publish one article soon, discussing this issue elaborately.

This circuit has been tested by me, and it works.

Just connect the output of the circuit to a suitable pin so that you can insert the pin into the cellphone charging input.

You can use any type of wire, as long as it conducts electricity it'll be fine.

No there's something wrong with your circuit, the output voltage should be 5V even with 6V input.

The current is not important here as long it is able to provide above 500mA, the cell phone will get charged.

Swagatam,
All your circuits are simple and clear, it's great!

Your circuit uses R1 = 5 Ohm, 2 Watt, and C1, C2 = 10uF/ 25V, does it need to be exactly 5 Ohm, 2 Watt, and 10uF/ 25V or we can also use other values suppose if it is not available ?

November 20, 2012 at 7:00 PM delete

Hi Cedar,

Nothing is critical here except the IC number.

You can use any value for the resistor from 5 to 20 Ohms, however increasing the value will slow-up the charging process.

You can use any value above 1uF for the caps too....

2 to 3 hours will be required.

you can connect the dynamo output to the above circuit via a bridge rectifier stage and start charging the cell phone as explained above.

As long as the input voltage is within 24V, current will not mater, so you can use it freely with your motorcycle battery also.

mobile chargers do not have auto shut off feature, rather cell phones have auto cut off feature in-built, therefore it's safe because the cell phone in-built circuit would cut off as soon as its battery gets fully charged.

Mr. Swagatam-

If the voltage was less than 5V, for example a small, single cell, hobby grade LiFePo4 battery, which puts out less than 4V... could I just hook the battery directly to the cell phone as a small "emergency" charger?

Thanks for any information and have a great week.

Sincerely,
Jim Kennedy

August 21, 2013 at 1:10 PM delete

If it's 4V then it would charge your cell phone when hooked directly, anything less than 4V would make the charging inefficient and sluggish.

You are welcome!

N/O, N/C and the pole are not connected to the circuit, they are connected to the load or an alarm via AC mains, there's no connection with the circuit.

If you are using a DC alarm then you may connect it with the circuit 12v supply.

The red leds will be shut off after setting up, and when a motion is detected across any of the LDRs the relevant red LED will light up indicating a motion.

Hello Alealu

with a 5V solar panel you don't have to use any IC at the output, you can connect your cell phone directly with the panel via a 5 OHM/ 1 watt resistor....it will start charging.

when you say it's a 5V panel it signifies the peak value at peak sunshine, so technically it cannot exceed this level.

But anyway you can use the above circuit in conjunction with it for better safety.

You can use a 7809 IC at the output, it will give you a 9V/1amp output from your 12V battery.

The connections will be same as in the above 7805 design

I mean, even if it is 5v peak this voltage do not exceed 5v but may goth below 5V ,so the voltage may be 5,4,3,2.....v depending up on sunshine,As a resale,is such low voltage is safe for mobile battery life????
