electronic problem solving
Here's a problem that I can solve, it's for a portable rechargable usb charger. The original plan used mini relays, but they consumed too much energy, so I need to solve this somehow.
There's 1 usb port, I need it so whenever you plug it in a computer it powers the charging circuit, but when it's not plugged in and some other thing, such as an ipod is attached to the same usb port, the boost circuit (i'm using a lithium battery) connects to the usb port, but it doesn't charge the battery in an inefficient cycle. The boost circuit I'm using is the max1709.
