modifying a mobile charger?

Hello, i have an old 2000mAh phone charger which i played with, it was supplying 3.5V.. i removed the battery and replaced it with 4 18650 batteries rated at 3000mAh each.. all are connected in parallel.. will this give me in theory 12000mAh battery? also, is it dangerous to use it or do i need to add any current limiter resistors to reduce the current..

My BE project is sound charger.Can i use a transformer to amplify signal from microphone from 3mV to 3Volts.?

I want to charge cellphone with the power of sound for which we are using a microphone.The output of the microphone is in millivolts.I would like to know if I can amplify my signal with a transformer because I cannot use any external power supply.Also we are thinking to store this amplified signal in an inductor.Is this the right way to go?If yes also suggest the transformer design for the same.

Portable,rechargeable mobile charger? Answered

I've come up with a plan to make a potable mobile charger for my galaxy phone with a rechargeable 9 volts battery.My original mobile charger(220 VAC input) says it gives an output of 5VDC at 0.7 amperes and hence I decided to make it with the given ratings.So here's my plan-I'll use a 7805 to regulate the 9VDC from the battery to 5VDC.The 7805 gives a maximum of 1 A output.So here's my question should I use a current regulator(LM317) to limit the current from exceeding 0.7 amps or will the phone's battery draw the sufficient amps from the LM7805?Maybe it might be a good idea to assist the output with a resistor as a safety measure.So,what do you say?

Using the wrong charger?

What are the risks of using the wrong charger for rechargable batteries?  Can you do it if you don't leave the batteries on too long?  Can you get away with it if you make certain the batteries don't get too hot?  Specificially for my 18V power tools the charger I have is only intended to charge NiCad batteries.  The company that made the tools has also made different types of battery packs that are interchangable in the tools, but each battery pack comes with a different model charger.  What if I used the NiCad charger to recharge a NiMh battery pack?  What if I use the NiCad charger to recharge a Lion battery pack?

Uses for Trickle Chargers?

Hi Guys I have been given 5 x 12v 500mA Trickle chargers with large croc clips on the end.  I'm relatively new to electronics and am trying to work out if they could be used for anything interesting.  In simple terms, can I use these as regular power supplies for 12v projects?  Or are they only useful for charging 12v batteries.  If so, would that be just Lead Acid batteries, or lithium or nicad also? Thanks

Wind-powered phone-charger

Here's one for the tower-block dwellers - a wind turbine you stick to your window. On the inside, you stick the matching base-station, and the set uses electromagnetic induction to transfer energy from the spinning turbine to the phone in the charger's cradle. It's a neat idea, but I don't know if it's a real product - I tried tracing the links back, and ended up going round in circles in the blogosphere. What I am sure of, though, is that somebody reading this has got the skills and motivation to build their own version.  You don't need to use the same design of turbine blades, and it's up to you how it sticks to the window (suckers?  magnets through the glass?), but I bet you can do it. Just remember to post an Instructable. Traced back to Yanko Design.  Originally seen on NOTCOT.

Solar Charger?

Hello, I am looking to build a solar charger in a 4x3x1.6 inch (or smaller) box to be as portable as possible. My only problem is, I would like to mount the solar cell on the box. However, all solar cells are far too large to fit this box, I plan to use a rechargeable 9v battery for power storage. I was wondering if I can use a 6v solar cell, and still use a standard LM7805 5v Voltage Regulator to drop 6v to 5v, or if someone could find a 2.5x3.5 inch solar cell (9v) online somewhere (for cheap) that would really help (I've looked everywhere...) Thanks.

Alkaline Charger

So, I want to try and build a charger for alkaline batteries with an Arduino.  I'll be using it to recharge 9v batteries. What I want to know is: What would the optimum charge current/voltage be?  Should I pulse the charge current? How do I detect the state of charge? How can I get ~1.6v from the arduino to charge an AA? Can I use PWM 5v? And any other useful info you may want to add. I have a ton of parts/shields/etc for arduino as well as components.  LCD's, IC's, LEDs, diodes, resistors, crystals, etc. Would also like to do a battery diagnostic utility to test health, resistance, charge, etc. Can anyone help? EDIT: So I made a quick circuit and sketch to charge an AA battery to 1.6v, using an LM317 adjustable voltage regulator. As os so far, it is working.  Now I need to figure out how to make a voltage doubler. I'm thinking something like 40-50 mA output at 10v. I have an LM324N quad op amp chip as well as one of these. How could I make a doubler circuit?

iPhone Chargers

I have seen many 'ibles on battery-powered USB chargers that say they cannot charge iPhones/iTouches because they require power to be supplied to the data pins. How, then, have I seen iPhone chargers (that work) with only two inner wires - a red and a black?  I recently bought an iPhone charger, so I could cut the wallwart off and use it instead of a USB port in this circuit. However, I have discovered that it only has 2 inner wires, as previously detailed. How could I use a 9V (PP3) battery and a 5V (7805) voltage regulator to turn this into a battery-powered charger? Both of the above questions are ones I would like answers to. Thanks in advance, ~H4ZZ

Charger circuit

Hey there, I'm planning to build a portable stereo speaker box thingy (you know what I mean). In order to power the 2x10W amplifier I want to use a 7.2V 1400mAh battery pack from an old RC car. As the housing of the box will be sealed I want to implement a mechanism to charge the pack. For this I wanted to achieve 3 things: -If the Power-Switch is turned on, the amp should be powered from the power line -If the Charge-Switch is turned on, the battery pack should be charged -If both of the switches are turned on, the amp should receive power from the power line while the battery pack is being charged. I have thought of the following cabling (see attached picture for a schematic) The blue box is the amplifier, the green box the battery pack and the orange connectors are tamiya connectors (the ones for RC cars) The first switch (marked in green) is a normal DPST switch which establishes the connection with the power line as well as the connection with the battery The second switch is a SPDT switch and activates either the connection between the battery and the amp or the connection between the power line and the battery. Will this work the way I think it will or does this configuration any faults? If the latter, what can I do I have to change? I'm actually really new to electronics, this if my first project so forgive me, if this setup is actually BS Cheers and sorry for the long post ^^'

USB Charger Question...

Ok, I have a (4) AA battery holder which is wired in series so that I get 6V. I was then going to use (3) LM7805 regulators in parallel with heatsinks because a AA battery has approximately 2600mAH and each 7805 is rated @ 1A... I tried using (1) 7805 and it was so hot it burn my finger (BAD!) I'm making this device to power a Motorola V3 Razor. I guess my question is if this will work or not, the more I've been reading the USB standard is 5V @ 500mA... Just because the batteries are rated @ 2600mAH does that mean that they will put out that much power? Or will the phone only draw as much power as it needs? I can't afford to use this phone as a test! Please only respond if you know for sure - someone with an EE degree would be nice ;) Thanks in advance!
