Old Dynacharge battery Charger good for other tech? Answered
I Picked up an old Dynacharge NiCd battery charger at a local Garage sale. What I am wondering is this, Can I use this old wall plug battery charger for the current NiCd Batteries? And If so.....wait for it.....Can I extract the guts from it and use it to make a self charging power bank? can I hard wire a charging circuit and a discharging circuit onto the batteries at the same time? would I need to put diodes in there? Is this even worth doing? I know that I can get all kinds of circuitry from online sources that can do the trick, but I'm wanting to use as much old stuff as I can. Input please?
