USB Mobile Charger Circuit Diagram
Most of the Mobile Phones battery are rated 3.6 volts at 1000 to 1300 mAh. These battery sets have 3 Lithium cells which have 1.2 volt rating.
Typically a battery pack sufficiently requires 4.5 volts and 300-500 mA current for fast charging. But low current charging is preferred to increase the efficiency of the battery. The mobile phone charger circuit based project described here provides 4.7 V of the regulated voltage and a sufficient amount of current for the slow charging of the mobile phones. Regulated output is given by the transistor T1, output voltage is controlled by Zener diode ZD and the polarity of the output supply is protected by D1. Front end of the circuit should be connected to an A type USB plug, a red wire to pin1 and black wire to pin 4 of the plug for easy polarity recognition. The output of a suitable charger pin should be connected with the mobile phone. After the circuit is assembled, USB plug should be inserted into the socket and output should be measured from the circuit. If the output is OK and polarity is correct, connect it with the mobile phone and if the polarity is incorrect, it will destroy the mobile battery so extreme care should be taken.
Resistor is a passive component used to control current in a circuit. Its resistance is given by the ratio of voltage applied across its terminals to the current passing through it. Thus a particular value of resistor, for fixed voltage, limits the current through it. They are omnipresent in electronic circuits....
Capacitor is a passive component used to store charge. The charge (q) stored in a capacitor is the product of its capacitance (C) value and the voltage (V) applied to it. Capacitors offer infinite reactance to zero frequency so they are used for blocking DC components or bypassing the AC signals. The capacitor undergoes through a recursive cycl...
BC547 is an NPN bi-polar junction transistor. A transistor, stands for transfer of resistance, is commonly used to amplify current. A small current at its base controls a larger current...
