Using Arduino to charge and monitor capacitors :: Student Project
Interested in building your own battery charger? So is Jeremy Hemming , who has been exploring ways to create an Arduino based intelligent battery charger for his car battery and his 18V drill batteries.
This video is a demonstration of charging and monitoring capacitors using external power supply, an Arduino board and an LCD as a display.
Jeremy has been a student and contributor of the Arduino Course for Absolute Beginners since I can remember.
Jeremy would love to hear any feedback or ideas on the project.
Here is the breadboard layout that Jeremy made using Fritzing. It may be slightly different from the video (he does not include the lightbulb below), but otherwise it should work well.
He also provided the code he is using:
