USB li-ion charger revision

Posted on Feb 7, 2014

An year ago, I`ve shared a circuit of USB li-ion charger based on LM358opamp. The circuit had some problems as reported by commentators that inclide wrong direction of LEDs.

Offensive comments will be deleted. If this is a request for custom circuit, then use the wish a circuit form. I`ve built your circuit just as you show in your schematic, with the exception that I`m using a barrel jack connector, and a 5V switching power supply purchased from Sparkfun. com. When I test the voltage coming from the part of your circuit that you use to charge the battery, it`s reading 3. 77 Volts is this correct I had a dead` (measure 0V) Nokia 3. 6 battery and the circuit seemed to work. However, when trying to charge a newer Samsung 3. 7V, it doesn`t seem to work. When fully charged, the battery reads 3. 99V. I put it back in the phone until it was about 3/4 full which it then reads 3. 79V. When I connect it to the charger, it doesn`t seem to do anything. Is this because the charger is outputting less voltage (3. 77V) I would like to use full power of s8550, it means a 1, 5 ampere charging current. I have strong 5V power supply, which can deliver about 2A of current. How can I change Your schematic, to obtain current of 1 to 1, 5 ampere I need such a high current, to charge high capacity 18650 Li-Ion cells. Thanks in advance for Your reply. my output power was very low but when i removed LED 1 the voltage a lot more to what i would like. However i am only getting a 80mA out but i would like something a lot higher. I just have a question, i done this circuit on my breadboard, but my exit tension is something...
