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 […]

Temperature Candle Using LED

LED based projects require a lot of skill and hence only experienced circuit designers try out these circuits. But there are also a few circuits in this genre that can be done by amateur electronic hobbyists. The temperature candle is one such circuit. Read on to know more about this. The hardware components that are […]

Battery Desulphation Progress Monitor

A number of readers have asked how to tell when the Lead-Acid Battery Zapper has done its job and battery desulphation is complete. In the author’s experience, batteries that are going to respond to this treatment will generally show quite a high peak voltage across the terminals at the beginning of the treatment. If this […]

12V Lead Acid Battery Desulphator

Lead acid batteries often fail prematurely due to over-charging, under-charging, deep discharging and low electrolyte level. All of these can lead to sulphation of the plates which leads to high internal resistance and eventual failure. Normally, this process is regarded as irreversible but this circuit is claimed to reverse the process by applying high voltage […]

24V 7Ah Lead Acid Battery Charger

This lead acid battery charger circuit is designed in response to a request from Mr.Devdas .C. His requirement was a circuit to charge two 12V/7AH lead acid batteries in series.Anyway he did not mentioned the no of cells per each 12V battery. The no of cells/battery is also an important parameter and here I designed […]
