Abstract

With cell phone usage becoming more and more popular, the demand for powering these devices is also increasing. A skateboard that is able to charge a portable phone charger while riding it is another way to power the seemingly endless demand for electricity. The hypothesis is that if an electric generator created from pre-existing parts is used on a skateboard, then it will generate enough electricity to sufficiently charge a portable phone charger. Prototypes will be created and tested. The flaws of the prototypes have been fixed, and will continue to be fixed, until a prototype is created which is able to successfully charge the portable phone charger. The electrical generator is providing enough power to charge the portable charger, although it has not actually charged it yet. The voltage produced ranges from 37 to 80 volts, which would be sufficient to charge the portable charger. As of now, the hypothesis cannot be accepted or rejected, since the portable charge has not been implemented to any prototype yet. The future work that needs to be done is to create prototypes with the portable charger that will be able to power the portable charger.
