Fuel-gauge ICs help prevent battery clones

Description The MAX1720x/MAX1721x are ultra-low power stand-alone fuel gauge ICs that implement the Maxim ModelGauge™ m5 algorithm without requiring host interaction for configuration. This feature makes the MAX1720x/MAX1721x excellent pack-side fuel gauges. The MAX17201/MAX17211 monitor a single cell pack. The MAX17205/MAX17215 monitor and balance a 2S or 3S pack or monitor a multiple-series cell pack. To ...

Dynamic-load circuit determines a battery’s internal resistance

The simplest model of a battery comprises an ideal voltage source that connects in series with a resistance whose value—often a few milliohms—depends on the battery's electrochemical condition and construction. If you attempt to use an ordinary ac milliohmmeter containing a kilohertz-range ac excitation source to measure a battery's internal resistance, you get erroneous results due to capacitive effects, w ...

Project: Gesture Controlled Mouse (Air Mouse) Using Arduino & Accelerometer

AIR Mouse is also called gesture-controlled mouse and it works based on hand gesture. In this project an accelerometer is used for measuring the tilt of hand in X and Y direction and moves the cursor according the tilt. In the project two types of circuit are used, one is the transmitter circuit and other is the receiver circuit. Transmitter circuit makes use of MPU6050 series of accelerometer, which is con ...

Interfacing Graphical LCD (ST7920) with Arduino

There are many types of LCDs used in Electronic Projects. We have already used 16X2 LCD in many of our projects and also used TFT LCD with Arduino. You can find our entire 16X2 LCD related project by following this link, including interfacing with 8051, AVR, Arduino and many more. The ST9720 Graphical LCD is totally different from the Ordinary LCDs. Ordinary LCD can only print simple text or numbers within ...

DIY electronic RFID Door Lock with Battery Backup

About Burglars Recently the Spiegel published an article about burglars in Germany: Burglars prefer the dark months. In december the insurances report 3 times more housebreakings than in july. The police reports that it is very difficult to find the delinquents. Mostly there are no witnesses and no traces. Only in 2,6% of the housebreakings the culprit can be condemned. Burglars do not only break into house ...

Wall Following Robot Car

Here's a little history on how this all got started :D So my club was in desperate need of a new project, and it so happened that I had stumbled across an RC car at GoodWill for about 75 cents. It was here that we figured: "Hey, we can build something out of this." However, once we were knee deep in the project, we realized we had bitten off more than we could chew. However, in the end we managed to swallow ...

AmpStrike – Battery Powered Bench Power Supply

Introduction This is a small bench power supply that is powered by two lithium-ion batteries. The project was inspired by Dave Jones from EEVblog but the design is completely mine. The voltage range is 0-20V regulated in 10mV steps and maximum current is 1A with current limit set in 1mA steps. Schematic Linear Voltage Regulator The power supply runs on a linear voltage regulator built on discrete components ...

Portable Adjustable Mini Power supply

A BIG HELLO! and welcome to Mixed Outputs first instructable. As most of my project involve electronics of some sort, having a good power supply is essential to be able to meet the demand of different power requirements. So I built me a bench-top power supply from an old ATX power supply Unit (PSU) that worked (and still works) great. However I've recently noticed some limitations with having a full fledged ...

DIY Arduino Battery Spot Welder

Due to many requests for the PCBs I do currently have some PCB Sets and prebuilt kits in stock. Take a look here: https://malectrics.eu An Arduino Nano based Spot Welder for battery welding This Spot Welder can be used to weld 18650 batteries. It uses a 12V car battery as welding current supply. Typically one 40Ah 440A battery delivers enough current to get good welds with 0.15mm nickel strips and even 0.25 ...
