Repeated charging keeps our mobile devices grounded

Repeated Charging keeps our mobile Devices Grounded

  • Entertainment and Communications at our finger tips is the standard

  • Always present wherever we go

  • As we depend on mobile devices we become grounded when they need to be recharged

  • How can we stay mobile if our communications do not?


Energy harvesting

Energy Harvesting

  • Conversion of ambient energy into usable electrical energy

  • Become your own personal power generation station!

  • Environmentally friendly Energy Source

  • Allows us to collect surrounding Energy naturally expended through the course of the day to power our mobile electronic devices

    • Permits us to stay mobile!

  • Become Independent of long stagnant charging periods


  • Collecting wasted energy

    Collecting Wasted Energy

    • Solar Panels

      • Use suns energy while walking

      • Placed on shoulders for convenience

    • Piezoelectric strips

      • Pressure from footsteps into electrical energy

      • Create energy as you walk!

    • Faraday Tube

      • Spring-loaded Magnet

      • Energy from body motions

    • Sent out in USB output

      • Universal Charging


    The design

    The Design

    • Harvested Energy is feed to circuit

    • Electrical Energy is manipulated to charge a battery

    • Harvested Energy stored in Battery until needed


    Stage1 regulator

    Stage1 - Regulator

    • Regulates power from constant voltage devices

      • Solar Panels

    • Uses Current Regulation to keep battery charging safe

      • Implements 10% Rule

      • Eliminates Cut-off circuit


    Stage 2 micro watt collector

    Stage 2 – Micro Watt Collector

    • Specializes in collecting small amounts of irregular energy

      • Piezoelectric strips

      • Faraday Induction Tube

  • System of Capacitors and Inductors

    • Voltage builds up

    • Current is passed through

  • Battery Friendly Output!

  • 540mW (PFC) + 240mW (Induction) = 780mW per day


    Stage3 usb charger

    Stage3 – USB Charger

    • Rechargeable NiCad Batteries to USB

      • DC-DC Step Up

      • 1.3V to 5.0V

    • Implements high efficiency chip

    • Power consumption is always a concern
