Simple Battery State Indicator

Many a time the outdoor audio or video recording becomes imperfect due to a ‘dying’ battery. If the battery voltage is less than 9V for a 12V recorder, the output during playback will not be of a good quality due to variations in the motor speed. Many car owners take their battery for granted, rarely […]

Lead-Acid-Battery Regulator For Solar Panel Systems

The design of solar panel systems with a (lead-acid) buffer battery is normally such that the battery is charged even when there is not much sunshine. This means, however, that when there is plenty of sunshine, a regulator is needed to prevent the battery from being overcharged. Such controls usually arrange for the superfluous energy […]

Mobile Charger with Voltage Converter

The circuit allows a simple and safe charging of 1-10 Ni-Cd or Ni-MH cells from a 12V source. The voltage converter can be operated at 6V, in this case is the max. output voltage 12V (no load). The performance can be improved through the use of Schottky diodes (D2/D3). D4 (LED) can omitted if you […]
