increase USB charger current
I have built myself a DIY mintyboost USB charger.
I am using a 3.7v 4000mah battery
Lipo charge controller
Dc/Dc 3v to 5v 1am boost circuit
I am looking for ways to increase my charging rate, my phone will often display a charging light when it is actually discharging.
I have used several diodes between the components 1n5817 diode (lowest voltage drop i could find)
Would installing a transister be able to boost my mA? if so what one.
I use my charger for my android, go pro and other 3.7v battery devices.
