  • Easily recharge alkaline batteries!

    Most button cell (cr2015, cr2030 i think those are their designations) are lithium, and 3v per cell. If you buy a hobby grade charger, (the ones for rc cars, and helicopters) you can make tons of different connectors and charge all kinds of batteries (pb, NiMH, NiCd, Lipo, Life, Li-ion) not alkaline because it's generally not safe and if you charge them with a charger for alkaline (one that pulses the battery hundreds of times a second at about an 80% duty cycle) they only charge a handful of times. I built a nice charge case that I use all the time. Its a pelican style case, with a 1000w charger that can charge the chemistries i listed above. I took a couple of 18650 sleds and glued them together, wired them in series and wired a balance lead to it as well and use the charger to charge...see more »Most button cell (cr2015, cr2030 i think those are their designations) are lithium, and 3v per cell.

I took a couple of 18650 sleds and glued them together, wired them in series and wired a balance lead to it as well and use the charger to charge them as a 2 cell lipo, it makes sure they are balanced (same charge in each cell) and charged at a safe rate. Those chargers will even tell you how many mAh it put back in to the pack. What im getting at in this long winded reply is if you use batteries for anything it is worth your while to get a hobby charger and some rechargeable batteries for your electronics and make the connectors that fit all the different size batteries you have.

    You're joking right? You must have absolutely zero grasp of how "wireless" charging works. Well at least you made me smile. Lol. Do a little google search on induction.
