Just Some Idle Notes

Other chargers have been attempted for charging “Primary” Alkaline cells, but they too suffered various limitations, from undercharging the cell so it had minimal capacity, or they suffered from the same failures from heat of the “Alkaline Charger”- Namely leakage and small explosions. This is usually the result of a lack of diffusion and localized heating within the cells. The cycling will hopefully address this issue so effective charging will occur. Continue reading

Another Pulse Charger

…This is a lot more sophisticated than previous circuits, but this one can be adjusted for current flow through the cells by using a higher value zener and adjusting the value of R1 to protect Zener. As shown it is suitable for a 6 volt lead acid or Nickel Cadmium or Nickel Metal Hydride battery array of 6 volts (5 cells) or 4 alkaline cells experimentally. … Continue reading

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.

Capacitor, Capacitive Battery Charger Circuit.

My preliminary battery chosen was a motorcycle battery that had been sitting outside over winter, and was likely 4 to 7 years old and therefore an excellent candidate for sulphated plates. The charger itself is nothing more than an industrial bridge rectifier I could only infer was a 9 Amp 900 volt PIV as I could not locate a datasheet. The capacitor was a 250 VAC, 3 microfarad capacitor- non-polarized. That was it. Not counting cord or wires. The capacitor was wired to the line side of the mains power, in the event of a failure, it was the shortest potentially exposed path for AC current in the event of failure. Continue reading

These battery chargers are not for fools and idiots

While charging alkalines, check the temps periodically. Those that may be prone to failure will be notably warmer than the other cells. If one is encountered, unplug charger and test the voltage of that particular cell- it may be fully charged, but in any event it should be taken out of the charger and another discharged cell slipped in. Continue reading

An adjustment for the Alkaline Charger.

Changing this single bulb charger to a 7 1/2 Watt incandescent light bulb reduces the charging rate and therefore allows for the gasses that sometimes build up to escape. There will still likely be some failures encountered at this charging rate, but they should be much lower in incidence than occurs with a 25 Watt bulb or 40 Watt bulb. Any charger will have failed cells, it is part of the chemistry of primary cells. Continue reading
