ABSTRACT

The Auto-run Cellphone is a project that addresses the issue of quick battery

discharge in smartphones due to the many applications that run. The project solves this generating electrical energy for charging while mobile is being used.

This is achieved by a pretty small wireless device that is mounted at the back of

the phone to act as a charger. It uses energy from the radiation caused by the

Radiofrequency from the Base Transceiver Station (BTS) while communication is taking place. The device does the conversion and regulation of the Voltage and

Current to achieve mobile charging specifications.

World Population

7.125billion people in the world in 2013 (Source: World Bank)

Population Growth Rate projected to be 1.2% annually

Africa’s Population is 2

nd

largest in the World after Asia.

Africa has 15% of the world’s population, approximately 1.068billion

people

Energy

Technology requires energy to drive it.

Main source of energy in Africa is Electrical Energy.

Other sources of power – solar, wind – currently expensive and out of reach of most.

Power Generation in Africa mainly Hydro and Geothermal

Global warming has affected weather patterns which has affected power

generation

This leads to inadequate power generation therefore most countries in Africa experience, Black Outs, Power Rationing, etc

Energy Cont’…

Assuming 70% of Africa’s Population each has a mobile device

70% of 1.068billion = 0.75billion people

Maximum Power required to charge a mobile phone is approximately 5W

Therefore, total power required for charging is: -

0.75billion * 5W = 3.75GW

Demand is too HIGH!

Alternative means of charging phones needs to be found.

The General Picture

Electrical energy is a precious commodity that needs to be

CONSERVED at all costs.

Alternative, Sustainable and Affordable means of charging cell phones in Africa must be found.

HARNESSING radiofrequency waves; CONVERT to electrical energy; REGULATING the energy; CHARGING of cellphone.

The Idea

The principle behind this invention is based on harnessing the

radiated electromagnetic waves from the cellphone antenna

Formation of magnetic field around the antenna will lead to generation of electrical energy

The electrical energy generated is the power that charges your cell phone

The Idea

cont’...

Not all radio frequency waves are to be converted, just about 70% of it.

The charging takes place when you: -

receive a call make a call

send a text and while browsing

Conclusions

Cost of Energy Generation and Consumption in Africa is high.

With Alternative, Affordable and Sustainable means of charging cellphones, the energy can be diverted to other uses.

The Auto-run Cellphone invention will ensure energy is sustained, conserved and is affordable to most.
