If you want to build Battery charger but you don’t have any knowledge mcu programming then this project is for you. This NiCad battery charger project only use IC MAX713 from maxim to control the charge and discharge battery. It will control the fast charge time and monitor the cell voltage. The project can charges a battery approximately 80% charge in 22 minutes at a current of 2.4 Amps (pretty fast.. 😉 ). Once the fast charging has ended, it trickle charges the battery.
