Ugandan woman constructs phone charger out of scraps

When you gotta TXT, you’ve gotta TXT. This Ugandan woman had to travel 20 miles by bicycle to recharge her phone so she came up with a better option on her own. It seems that she wrapped five D batteries together and then attached wires to the positive and negative terminals of the phone charger. Who knows how well it works but hopefully it saves the lady a few trips on her bike. Larger pics after the link.
