    Building a charging circuit for a 2 cell Li-ion battery

    Hi, I am in the process of designing a battery to use with a pair of FPV goggles for drone racing, the goggles require a 2 cell battery, but I don't have a 2 cell battery charger. I do have a bunch of TP4056 charging boards, and I was looking to design an all in one unit that would hold 2...

    Running a power tool without a battery.

    Hi, I have a 10.8V Bosch battery which is standard for power tools. It has 5 terminals: + - C1 C2 T I'd like to power the device without the battery using a DC power supply. When I apply just the right voltage to + and - it doesn't work. How am I supposed to mimick C1,C2 and T interfaces...

    Li-Ion Battery Managment IC Issue

    Hi, I would appreciate if someone would be able to comment/advice on the following matter. I have been looking around for an IC that would charge and balance Li-Ion cells 2-3 of them in series. It seems that the balance feature is absent in most cases. MCP73841 appears to provide most of the...

    SLA Battery Charging/Maintenance

    Is using a UPS i.e. APC Smart-UPS (4 battery) a recognized way to charge and maintain SLA batteries (AGM) throughout the year? Given that the batteries should be discharged about every 3 months?

    Arduino Mega 2560 controlled MPPT charge controller for small wind turbine.

    I am in the process of designing a MPPT controller for a wind turbine. There are plenty of MPPT boards (with BQ24650 MPPT charge controller ICs) but these are fixed voltage MPPT designs tailored for photovoltaic applications. So I decided to make a simple DC converter (buck boost design, non...

    LDO crash when Lipo reaches full charge with USB still powering.

    Hello, I'm just now getting into creating PCB's as a hobby, and created a little board that simply consists of a BLE module powered by a tiny Lithium polymer battery (40mah). Since the max operating voltage of the module is 3.6V, I also have an LDO that will drop the voltage down to 3.3V...
