battery pack charger - DIY
« on: July 18, 2014, 09:41:17 AM »
I am trying to make my own charger for 6v/2000mah ternergy.
I only have a 5V/1A charger to make it. I think it should be ok, can anyone please let me know if that will work.
Thanks

What chemistry does that battery use? This is very, very important if you do not want the battery to burst into flames.

Did you do a search on how to properly charge NiMh batteries?
There is lots of info on the proper sequencing on controlled current and Voltage.

And yes, building your own charger can be done. It just needs to be done properly else you either just kill the battery and/or start a fire.
