Very Simple Lead Acid Battery Charger with PB137 Regulator


This is a Very Simple circuit for Lead Acid Battery Charger using PB137 Regulator. The PB137 is used for lead acid battery charger circuit because it can give 1.5A at Vo=13.7V. The PB137 also has a reverse leakage current. The maximum reverse leakage current of PB137 is 10µA at Tj=0 to 40°C and V1=floating and Vo=13.7V. Here is the circuit :
