RESULTS AND DISCUSSIONS

This section analyses of the experiment. The experiment went as expected that it may be able to charge mobile phones. The voltage as measured by the tester was around 1 to 2 volts which is sufficient to charge a phone. Some of the problems the group has encountered during the process of making the charger was the lack of using diode, a two-terminal electronic component that conducts electric current in only one direction. In the end, after using a diode and forming the wires into a parallel circuit the charger was able to charge.

Below is table of comparison of voltage between a charger A (uses electricity) and charge B (iCharge).

CHARGER A B

VOLTS 4.7 V 1.5 V

Although Charger B produces almost half the volts Charger A produces, take note that Charger B was made for emergency usage that is why the volts that it gives out is sufficient.

TEAM KIKIAM IV – PATRIOTISM CONCLUSIONS

After testing iCharge and gathering the data, the group concludes that their product was made successfully and that its objective to be an alternative charger during emergency cases is possible.

RECOMMENDATIONS

As iCharge was made and proven to be working and possible still it has not yet reached its peak. The group recommends that it may be furthered studied and be seen in other point of perspective and not just a charger. Maybe the concept of iCharge may be furthered developed and that it may be able not only charge phones. Since the group used the original plug model of Nokia, it is also possible that it may have different plugs from other brands of phone.

ABSTRACT

Chargers today are considered a neccessity. iCharge, developed and made by Team Kikiam, is made to be a substitute charger that can be used not only during emergency cases but also on pleasure times. Since iCharge uses energy produced by friction it does not contribute in electrical consumption. Moreover, it does not also contribute in producing carbon dioxide emmission because no electricity is used. iCharge not only tackles environmental aspects but also health and life practicality. Squeezing, the main exercise to make iCharge work, is a good exercise and helps in making hand muscles be more flexible and helps in blood circulation. The group aims to lessen electricity consumption and to provide a more environmental friendly by making iCharge possible.
