D1 1 1N457 Diode
Q1 1 2N2905 PNP Transistor
U1 1 LM350 Regulator
U2 1 LM301A Op Amp
S1 1 Normally Open Push Button Switch
MISC 1 Wire, Board, Heatsink For U1, Case, Binding Posts or Alligator Clips For Output
- The circuit was meant to be powered by a power supply, which is why there is no transformer, rectifier, or filter capacitors on the schematic. There is no reason why you cannot add these.
- A heatsink will be needed for U1.
- To use the circuit, hook it up to a power supply/plug it in. Then, connect the battery to be charged to the output terminals. All you have to do now is push S1 (the "Start" switch), and wait for the circuit to finish.
- If you want to use the charger without having to provide an external power supply, use the following circuit.
2nd circuit (power supply)
C1 1 6800uF 25V Electrolytic Capcitor
T1 1 3A 15V Transformer
BR1 1 5A 50V Bridge Rectifier 10A 50V Bridge Rectifier
S1 1 5A SPST Switch
F1 1 4A 250V Fuse
- The first time you use the circuit, you should check up on it every once and a while to make sure that it is working properly and the battery is not being over charged.
