These are a collection of videos that will teach you the basics of electronics. These videos are an incredibly fast way to get up to speed on basic concepts required for building a portable. Every video I have selected is short and to the point, while providing the necessary information to grasp the concept.

Tools:

Soldering (beginners)

Soldering (intermediate)

Hand Tools

Multimeters

Concepts:

Amps

Volts

Resistance + Ohms Law

Power + Watts

Amp-hour, Watt-hour and C ratings

What kills you, Volts or Amps?

Why do you need multimeters?
Quite litterally everything. When working with electronics, your multimeter is just as essential as your eyeballs.

I'm sorry but I don't know a thing about this stuff and I'm having trouble learning about it, is there any other way I can learn?
