need to keep cranking it to provide enough energy. For smart
phones, you need to start cranking really fast until the screen
shows normal charging, and then slow down to normal cranking

manpower, but it is an alternative when you don't have battery
power, solar power or any of the other ways to charge your cell

around and being active or spinning your phone:

phone line will always work. This is an amazing hack for
preppers to learn. This free, hidden source of electricity is for
emergency use only. Yes, you can tap the power from the
telephone company and just enough to recharge your cell
phone, but you need some tools and you'll need to consult with
your own sense of ethics. No one can argue that in a matter of
life or death, it's the right thing to do. It's always good to have
options, even if you don't exercise them, so if you want to
recharge your cell phone using the telephone line, then learn
how to do it! The video below gives simple instruction.

How to make your phone battery last
Now that you know some unconventional ways to recharge your
cell phone, here are some ideas for how to keep your charge

  • Dim the display. Turn the brightness of your display to the
    lowest possible setting.

  • Keep the battery cool. Don't fry your phone by leaving it
    in the car to bake in the sun. Your battery will last much
    longer when it's at room temperature. While an odd thing
    to do, you can put the phone in battery in the fridge.

  • Don't use the vibration mode. That takes too much
    power. Ring tone uses far less energy.

  • Turn off the features. Turn off WIFI, GPS, infrared,
    AirDrop (iOS) and Bluetooth, except when you need these
    features. They are battery drainers. Animations are also
    battery hogs.

sticks can also help recharge your cellphone. It's just one of the
many weird ways you can recharge your phone.

recharge the battery in your phone. That's right, you can light a
campfire, sit around the CampStove and watch the flames dance
as you roast marshmallows and tell stories with friends, as you
charge your cell phone. While it's fun, it's also an incredible
emergency preparedness item to own. Boil water, cook, be

#2: Get power for your cell phone from a car.
Don' take for granted that you can turn the DC current from your
