Another battery charger
« on: October 02, 2017, 03:44:49 PM »
Battery charger. These are available in any supermarket with prices next to nothing.
From that point ov view this project was nothing unusual ... it is a battery charger after all - nothing but that.

Well, it can deliver 15 amps @ 40 volts. That in a very controlled manner.
The only thing You choose is the battery type, capacity and push the go button.
Did You connect the charging terminals wrong way around ? No problem - You just light up a christmas tree...
This also measures the numer of cells automatically. That is if You did not lie the battery type which will result to another christmas tree.
All battery types have somewhat different algorithm when loading. If the battery behaves unexpectedly You light up yet another christmas tree.

I really like the hammer finish ...
