Ionut Radicand shared his awesome homemade battery charger build this week in our Community!

This is a 18650 battery charger made out of a commercial, china very cheap 220V charger. I strip`t everything out and installed the TP4056 board witch can charge the 3,6V cell with current up to 1A. It is basically a better version of the very popular XSTAR MC1 charger witch uses the little brother the TP4057 that can only supply 500mA to the cell. (read more)
