I think ThomasVDD's system is much better than any IoT/mobile app. The reason is simple: this system is FULLY automatic and does not need ANY human intervention while working. With IoT you need your app to do the feed, and if something goes wrong with an Internet connection, the fish will die. This current system is, as far as I am concerned, vastly superior to any IoT application. Excellent work ThomasVDD!An IoT/mobile solution will be great as an add on to this current solution, and more specifically as an error correction device. The IoT app can alert the person when the feeder stops working, but adding that functionality will necessitate a totally new power system (that can deliver more power), which will probably be overkill for this device.

Very good! Thanks!
Hi balsuryana, thank you for the explanation. Your work is great. I just wished there was a way to built the circuit! :-)Keep up the good work, but maybe with your next instructable try to use components that anyone can buy. ;-)
I also saw similar chargers on Aliexpress, but your link (and others I found on Aliexpress) sells the complete charger, and not only the LCD panel. It would be silly to buy the charger that you linked to and dismantle it to build the exact same charger which you just dismantled!The bottom line is that before this instructable can be useful, a link should be given to buy the LCD-panels only.
The hardware needed to make this battery level indicator is so specialized (i.e. the screen is not widely available at all) that the instructable is simply a teaser without any real way of making it! It is really a shame....
