Phone Charging Hack for Emergencies

Cell phone charging hacks for emergencies like Hurricane Irma

UAT Computer Science student Christopher Peterson shows off a phone charging hack for emergencies.

With hurricane season underway, this information is useful to residents in the areas affected by Hurricane’s Harvey and Irma. Not to mention, students living in Arizona should always be prepared as the desert is not a great place to be stranded, either.

In the event that power is out and cell phone towers are down, a cell phone can be used for the flashlight feature, to photograph the scene and to help first responders locate you by GPS.

Materials needed:

  • 9V battery
  • spring from pen
  • car phone charger with cord
