We're close to seeing the end of hurricane season (November 30). But beacuse disasters of all kinds can strike at any time, it's never a bad idea to be prepared. With more and more people dropping their landlines for a cell-only household, it's tough to know what do do in an emergency. If you're handy with a soldering iron, why don't you try to make an emergency solar-powered cell phone charger with help from the team at My Home 2.0...
This mint tin charger uses mini solar panels from a science or electronics hobby store (or order them online) and a cheap cell phone charger to make a gadget for power-outage emergencys or to keep in your car in case you're stranded somewhere with half a bar left.
A full How To is available here at My Home 2.0.
