How to Build LiPo Battery Charger using 7809 and LM324 IC

ElcoHow. - There are many battery charger circuit schematic that design to give best result charging. One of the electronic circuit battery charger is like in Figure 1 below that suitable to charge LiPo battery. The main components are used in this circuit are volatge regulated IC 7809 and LM324 IC. In here, beside we will give you circuit of Battery Charger using 7809 and LM324 IC, we also will give you global description about this circuit and also skill needed and other.

Electronic Circuit
Component List
  1. LM324 IC
  2. 7809 IC
  3. LED
  4. Transistor 2N2222
  5. Resistors
  6. LiPo Cell Battery 3.7/360mAH

Electronic circuit like in Figure 1 above is Battery Charger using 7809 and LM324 IC circuit. According Circuitstoday site that published Li-Po battery or Lithium-Polymer battery is a rechargeable battery based on the Lithium-ion technology enclosed in a flexible pouch. This soft, flexible pouch makes them very light with a compromise in mechanical strength. Li-Po batteries are widely used in applications where weight is a critical factor. The common applications are radio controlled model flight, RC toys, hand held devices etc.

7809 Pin Connection
The Lithium Polymer battery is evolved from the Lithium Metal Batteries.The main difference is that instead of using Lithium salt electrolyte binded in organic solvents like  Ethylene carbonate, Di Methyl Carbonate Di Ethyl Carbonate , Li-Po batteries use polymer electrolytes like Poly Ethylene Oxide, Poly Methyl Methacrylate, Poly Acrilonitrile etc.   The output voltage of Li-Po battery depends up on the technology used behind it. It is 2.7-3.0 V (discharged) to  4.20-4.35 V( charged) for cells based on Lithium Metal Oxides and it is 1.8-2.0 V (discharged) to 3.6-3.8 V (charged) for cells based on  Lithium Iron Phosphate. The charging current is usually 1/5 of the mAH rating of the battery.

Like other Lithium batteries the Li-Po batteries are also prone to problems related with over charging, deep discharging, over temperature, short circuit etc. Any of these problem may result in permanent damage to the battery or even explosion. In order to avoid such problems, great care must be given while designing LiPo battery charger circuits.

To build LiPo Battery Charger using 7809 and LM324 IC, you need some skill as follow:
  1. Basic soldering.
  2. Read a basic schematic.
