Lithium-ion (Li-ion) Battery Charger with MAX1879

Above diagram is the circuit of Lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery charger which built based single chip MAX1879. This is the simple and low cost battery charger for single-cell Li+ battery that does not dissipate power (no heat.

The MAX1879, in conjunction with the AC linear transformer adapter and a PMOS FET, allows safe and fast charging of a single Li+ cell. The MAX1879 is not only an inductorless required solution, but also the lowest power dissipated solution among single-cell Li+ battery chargers.

Solid State Tesla Coil with 555 Timer

Here the circuit diagram of solid state tesla coil with 555 timer.

Single transistor flyback driver induced a lot of complications on account of it really is operating principle. I received e-mails from those who had been unable to obtain it functional even after they are positive that their flyback and transistor is Okay. Moreover, because it is resonance frequency is determined by each individual a part of the method, any time you seek to draw an arc in the transformer, it alterations substantially in a lot of the circumstances. Simply because the operating frequency is vital for your security criteria, (each for mine and electrical power transistor's), I determined to generate it run on a continuous frequency and developed up yet another easy circuit, attempting to keep within the specified limits in the 555 timer.

Simple Power Supply Circuit for Laser

This is a very simple high voltage power supply circuit for laser device. It is low cost circuit and very easy to built. This power supply can be built with common parts, most of which you probably already have in your junk box. The secret of this circuit is the transformer used. It is a common 9V 1A transformer unit, connected backwards for step up. Please note that some people may have trouble with this supply. This is due to the slight difference in transformers. 

Regulated Current Booster for Power Supply

This is the regulated current booster designed to increase the DC current of a power supply.

Even though the 78xx series of voltage regulators are readily available with diverse current outputs, you could increase the obtainable current output with this circuit. A power transistor is utilized to provide additional current for the load the regulator, preserving a continuous voltage. Currents as much as 650mA will flow by way of the regulator, above this value along with the power transistor will start out to conduct, supplying the additional existing for the load. This needs to be on an sufficient heat sink as it is actually most likely to obtain rather hot. Suppose you use a 12V regulator, LM7812. The input voltage must be a number of volts greater to permit for voltage drops. Assume 20 Volts. Lets also assume that the load will draw 5 amps. The power dissipation within the transistor will likely be Vce * Ic or (20-12)*8 = 40 Watt. It may possibly preserve you warm within the Winter,…
