Siphon Battery From Your Friends’ Phone With This DIY Gadget


battery life sucks

Hardware hacker Rulof Maker, has made a small portable device can suck the battery from one phone to another. This was done through modifying a few electronic bits and combining them into a gadget that he can carry around on a keyring so he’ll never forget to bring it.

What you’ll need for this project is a motor from an iPhone fan, a circuit board from an inexpensive USB power bank, a Lightning-to-USB cable, a small wood block and some soldering skills.

Maker’s gadget is made to steal battery from iPhones but there’s no reason you can’t use a micro-USB or USB Type-C cable for this project.

You can watch the video above for detailed instructions.
