Abstract : Due to increase in the use of mobile phones especially on G.S.M networks today, which according to NCCs report presently in Nigeria have over 138 Million subscribers, coupled with inadequate and sporadic electricity supply, hence for constant operation, a power solution more robust than power bank (which still requires initial charging with electricity or generator) for private and commercial use has been developed with solar as its primary source of energy. This paper focuses on the design, construction and operational advantages of portable solar powered phone charging box (PCB), for mobile phone users as an alternative to what is used today in a reformed and modernized form at school campuses, bus stops, motor parks, shopping complexes, markets, office complexes, airports, social gatherings to mention a few, where pockets of phone charging points with conventional loop wiring of about 10-25, 13A sockets supported with 900W/1.2KVA generator is used to charge people mobile phones say at a minimum rate of fifty Naira per phone. In order to eliminate noise, smoke pollutions injurious to health and also save the cost of fuelling and generator maintenance, the design and production of portable solar powered â€“Phone Charging Box- (PCB) became imperative.
