Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) 12V Battery Charger with Current Limiting

This is the circuit design of Smart Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) 12V Battery Charger featuretwith Current Limiting. The charger uses a two step process for charging SLA batteries – a current limited ‘fast’ mode followed by a constant voltage ‘float’ mode. Maximum charging current is 1A.

An onboard LED indicates when the charger is in ‘fast’ mode. When the LED goes out the battery is charged and the charger has switched to ‘float’ mode.
