The objective of this research is to design a Solar Powered Portable Power Bank for mobile phone using sunlight as its ultimate power, which can be used effectively during disaster events. It has in-built solar panel which converts the solar energy to electrical energy. The charge is then transferred to a battery for storage of charge for further use, with the battery having a microcontroller indicating the percent of charge present in the battery. The battery is connected to a charging circuit having an USB port as output to the respective Mobile phones.
