Adam Savage’s One Day Builds: Lithium Ion Battery Charging Station!
Adam Savage builds a gang charger for multiple rechargeable lithium batteries! Adam Savage’s Tested shared this video on Youtube!
Adam takes on a bit of shop infrastructure this week to tackle the inefficiencies of lithium-ion battery chargers. Specifically, he needs a charging rack that can store, charge, and organize the cave’s set of 3.7V li-ion cells–the kind used for high-powered flashlights and other electronics. Adam builds a portable gang charger that can power eight batteries at once from a single power supply–a simple build you can do at home too!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
