    over voltages or surge voltages

    Power Strip with USB, Surge Protector Smart 3 Outlet and 4 USB Port Charger with 5ft Extension Power Cord 1250W 100-240V https://www.amazon.com/Protector-Extension-100-240V-Portable-Transformers/dp/B07KGPFHYC/ref=sr_1_9?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1548959567&sr=1-9&keywords=surge+protectors+for+computers I worked with a power supply that was 900 amperes and 8 volts; this would not work for that

    Amplify the smartphone headphone port voltage

    This maybe helpful: How to make an IR blaster: https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Make-an-IR-Blaster/ and an amplifier https://www.amazon.com/Geekroom-Headphone-Amplifier-Rechargable-Computers-Black/dp/B07F1JS4JV/ref=sr_1_21?ie=UTF8&qid=1548463071&sr=8-21&keywords=cell+phone+audio+amplifier This is an old question but it maybe helpful to someone in the future.

    Phone components

    audioguru is correct. But if you are interested in cell phones you may find this site helpful: https://www.instructables.com/id/Make-your-own-cellphone-from-scratch/
  4. I would use an arduino microcomputer with an arduino display shield for the display. The best microcomputers are about 22$ down to a few dollars for the ones from China. The arduino display shields are around 10$ or so. The Utlransonic distance measuring transducer senors are less than 10$; they detect if you are in your seat or not. https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=arduino+uno https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_1_13?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=arduino+ping+sensor&sprefix=arduino+ping+%2Caps%2C215&crid=DDBCCF7NH7CK https://www.amazon.com/s/?ie=UTF8&keywords=arduino+display+shield&tag=geminipcstand-20&index=aps&hvadid=28314448797&hvqmt=e&hvbmt=e&hvdev=c&ref=pd_sl_83ujuhent2_e
  5. One can go from 50hz ac to 12 vdc via battery charger then from 12 vdc battery to 60hz 120v via a dc to ac converter. see: https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=50hz+to+60hz+converter&&view=detail&mid=3D9219028DABBB0162A53D9219028DABBB0162A5&&FORM=VDRVRV&ajf=60
  6. Hello, I would think few of us would know anything about mig welders. I gather you want to hot switch the current from the mains to the welder. What current does your welder draw would be a start. You may need a high current relay to do the switching. Like? https://www.grainger.com/product/5ZH38?cm_mmc=PPC:+Google+PLA&s_kwcid=AL!2966!3!166591437759!!!g!81032003877!&ef_id=WqqIQwAAAacd4m57:20180315145043:s It's rated "AC contract rating - relay: 25 amperes at 240 volts ac." You need a relay rated higher than it draws off the mains because of the inductive load - I gather the mig welders have a transformer at the input like an arc welder?

    Practical use of voltage divider

    How about 3 terminal adjustable voltage regulators? see for example: https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/ON-Semiconductor-Fairchild/LM317AHVT?qs=%2fha2pyFadugRpOCsw7uJG%2fYkcWjLe5SQfHkipQZSRvGAuHf8Q8Z20lpgQCwyK1vllMxUP7WNhWIGj0RAnAK1dQ%3d%3d 60 volts max and 1.5 amperes. Poke around at Mouser for higher current ones also. There are filters on their site that are helpful.

    how to design a battery jack for unknow phones

    Your " unknown phone " is unknown to us also. One photo is worth a thousand words, two photos are worth two thousand words, etc

    12 volts dc motor

    You need to define this so someone can help you.

    Transformer Watts

    The power required by the charger would be in the order of: 120 * 0.3 = 36 watts. The 220/240 To 110/120 Volt European Socket Power Converter Step Down Transformer off ebay.com are rated 100 watts and not expensive. Order one directly from China; it's just up the big pond from you

    I enlarged the image off the Amazon.com but could not read it https://www.amazon.com/Black-Decker-LCS1620-Lithium-battery/dp/B01M6TQPY2/ref=sr_1_3/141-0275392-4037060?ie=UTF8&qid=1499813460&sr=8-3&keywords=Black+%26+Decker+LCS1620 ...but ebay.com has a readable image http://www.ebay.com/itm/Black-Decker-LCS1620-20v-20-Volt-Lithum-Ion-Battery-Charger-NEW-/272090041874?epid=1640405275&hash=item3f59d48e12:g:mf8AAOSwawpXr3eh 120v @60hz 300ma

    Help microcomputer

    This unit will work stand alone (with out a UNO) and has wifi> https://www.amazon.com/HiLetgo-Version-NodeMCU-Internet-Development/dp/B010O1G1ES/ref=sr_1_22/136-5999016-8336545?ie=UTF8&qid=1496770085&sr=8-22-spons&keywords=arduino+wifi&psc=1 Read the Q/A section.
  14. If you search on amazon.com for "arduino wearables" you will find a number of devices. There are also a number of books on the subject.
