 Due to the development of electronics especially in the communication field each individual is in need of voltage source to charge their cellular phones.  So an alternative way of producing electricity is the need of the hour.  Though other energy sources like solar energy, tidal energy, wind energy etc., are existing it is not sufficient to satisfy the requirement.  Hence this study on generating electricity through waste material likes fallen leaves which have no use.  The electrolyte of Daniel cell is prepared by soaking the fallen leaves in water for a period of minimum 3 to 5 days.  Result shows that this single Daniel cell can produce approximately 0.8 DC voltage.  The Daniel cells connected in series naturally increases the output which lights the LED and also charges the cellular phones.  Studies are focused on the variation of  output voltage  with respect to  different leaves as well as  to various  period of soaking.
