Help with iPod Classic USB Portable Charger? Answered
I've seen so many portable iPod chargers out there but I'm not that experienced to handle the electronics. So, what I wanted to do was to take apart old adapters and connect it with a 9V battery (with the battery slot from an old alarm clock) A couple of questions I have are..
-Does the adapter have a regulator to bring the 9V battery down to the proper amount of volts needed to charge the iPod?
-How much power is needed to charge the iPod?
-On the battery wire thing, which wire is negative, which is positive?
-Which wire (on the battery slot) is supposed to connect to which wire on the circuit?
-On the circuit board, which is negative, which is positive?
-(Relying on the informational sticker on the adapter) Circuit board input: AC100 - 240V 50/60Hz
-(Relying on the informational sticker on the adapter) Circuit board output: DC5V = 200mA
-More specs in pictures
Hopefully, the circuit board already has a regulator, to bring the 9V down to a 5V, so I wanted to post this to ask the experts on 'ibles to see if it probably has a regulator or by using the pictures.. thanks so much!
If you need more pictures of anything, just ask; thanks again for helping :D
