What is of the sun is of the great­est fun. Power your gad­gets with this DIY so­lar USB charger

We’re well into the 21st cen­tury, and con­sumer tech­nol­ogy has grown small enough to al­low ev­ery­one to carry a power­bank ev­ery­where they go. De­spite their con­ve­nience, though, your typ­i­cal power­bank still isn’t per­fect—you still have to make sure that it’s got enough juice in case of emer­gency, which it some­times runs out of, es­pe­cially when there aren’t any elec­tri­cal out­let in sight.

So why not go green and take the power of the sun into your own hands with your very own so­lar USB charger?

That’s right. We know it sounds a bit daunt­ing, and it might be the most com­pli­cated thing we’ve fea­tured on Get Handsy so far, but you can to­tally put one to­gether out of so­lar pan­els, an un­used USB charger, and a lit­tle bit of el­bow grease. You’ll never have to worry about rush­ing to a power out­let again.
