More on the Capacitive Charger

Mind you- the Capacitive charger is a slightly different beast, but you can use the Application Note as a reference to refine the charger and normalize the concept of the capacitive charger. The importance being the calculations. The real notable difference is as a battery charging circuit, the battery is both a load and a capacitance in the circuit, so there is no need for the 470 microfarad capacitor or the zener diode that are shown in the Application Note. The equations provided will also allow for a bit of optimization and also allow those on 50 Hertz/250 volt standards to modify the charger a bit closer to optimal for their area of the world.
