How to Charge Your Phone Battery Without a Charger

By April Khan

From time to time you may be stuck somewhere without a charger for your phone, or away from an area where you can charge it using a wall socket--for example, when you are out camping or stranded on the road with a dead car battery. However, if your phone battery is low on power, you can charge it without the use of a regular charger.

Things You'll Need

  • USB data cord
  • Solar charger

Step 1

Install the software disc that came with your phone. This software contains your phone suite and your phone's driver. Without this installation, your computer will not pick your phone up.

Step 2

Make sure your phone has some power before connecting it to the computer. If the phone has no power, it will still charge on the computer, but it will take longer.

Step 3

Connect your phone to the data cord. This cord must be the one supplied with your phone. It will have the connector to your phone on one end and a USB connector on the other end.

Step 4

Connect the data cord to the PC. Your phone can either be on or off before connecting.

Tips & Warnings

  • You may use the USB connection to plug your phone up to a laptop. This method will pull power from your laptop battery to charge your cell phone. Simply connect your phone to the data cord and then to the USB Port on your laptop, turn your laptop on and leave the phone to charge.
