Charging for acb with your own hands - the simplest scheme, part 2. - Drive2

We continue the theme, with a description of step-by-step making of our charging. Step 4: "Rectifying" scheme. We have previously decided on the coil, the case and cooling has already been determined, but the fact is that the coil or the transformer gives an alternating current, for its conversion to constant, the diagram of a diode "bridge" or a ready-made diode bridge that is kept from 30a and higher.

An example of a diode bridge.

But in the market prices for diode bridges, though small but we will use more affordable details. Made on the basis of the "Soviet" diodes that are in any body of radio equipment of those times, in any case they are more reliable, and more resistant to overheating. That is a list of suitable Diodes for our needs.

I found D243, I just fits.

Next, with the help of our friends,

We cut any aluminum profile for the manufacture of cooling radiators.

Connect the elements of each other according to the scheme,

To comply with the polarity and facilitate the assembly on each diode there is a label (drawing), which can be focused. It turned out so, already marked black and red where the polarity should be at the exit, plus red and minus black.

Now all these elements are placed in the housing, by observing the distance, and according to the scheme, connect to the transformer (coil).

I got like that.

Diodes view

View from the cooling system.

In fact, this is the ready simplest power supply without protection. It has a cooling system that will prevent our block and parts from overheating. But it does not have protection against short circuit and work with it needs to be controlled by a separate measuring instrument.

Step 5: The simplest scheme of the most affordable charger.

To create, we need any simplest power supply from 15V and higher. Power supplies are also suitable for laptop and household appliances. So as we have already manufactured such a block, consider the connection schemes to the automotive battery for charging. The most common.

with our power supply

With a power supply from a laptop.

As you can see an additional chain element, this car light is 12V or several pieces.

You can say the light bulb will be an indicator of work, charging, and a small protection of power supplies from failure. Since the automotive battery in essence has low density and power supplies that are not intended for this may simply fail. Also, if it suddenly gets a battery with closed banks about which will signal a very bright glow.

According to this scheme, I connected acb through these light bulbs,

On a little discharged battery

According to this scheme, such a charging that I collected gives up to 3 amps.

When charging calmly gives 1 amp, which favorably affects the battery, while it is not bad for low currents.

When charging the battery, you need to unscrew the plugs on the banks on the battery.

Minus such a scheme that the charging process must be controlled by a separate measuring device so that there is no recharge on the battery, that is, when it is reached on terminals to ~ 14.4V or boiling in banks, you need to disable everything.

In the following themes, we consider the simplest current adjustment schemes - we will make your own, consider how to connect the measurement instruments to the ammeter voltmeter. It can be said a little complicating the design that everyone does not have experience on electronics.

Well, like that of all the world and good, add comments if there is something to tell or take part, I will not refuse :).

Probably, every motorist knows how the charging for the car battery is quickly broken. If once again it happened, it came to collect him on my own. It is easy, even if there is no electrical knowledge.

Device parameters

Everyone knows that the entire car electronics feeds from 12V. In this case, the charging device should issue a current of 10% of the nominal container. Without this, the memory will also work, but much slower.

To achieve these parameters, you will need:

  1. Transformer with 2 windings. Here the rule works "the more turns - the better." If the windings are more, then not scary. They will not be involved. In fact, any pulse transformer is suitable.
  2. From the outlet there is alternating meals. The charger for the car battery, made by its own hands, should issue a permanent one. This case will need a rectifier.
  3. Tester. The multimeter is necessary in order to determine the output voltage. It should be exactly 12 volts.
  4. Make a battery charger is impossible without automatics. Otherwise, the battery may explode. Therefore, the voltage control relay is necessary.
  5. You need to adjust the current. A variable resistor can cope with it. It is advisable to take a multi-coiled regulator of the current so that the adjustment was smooth.

This is enough to assemble a simple charger.

Charger Scheme for Car Battery

To assemble a homemade charger, at least soldering skills are needed, no more. Here is a few scheme of a charger for a car battery that can be collected in a couple of hours.

Simple schemes

Here are 3 charts of a simple charger for a car battery. Perhaps all the necessary components already have it or you can buy them for a barrel on the flea market.

With 1 diode

The transformer is placed on 1 amp and switch for convenience. After the transformer from one output of the winding, a diode is placed, and from the other - a fuse. In the gap you need to put an ammeter and a voltmeter. You can buy cheap Chinese testers, where only the screen and wires. You can use Soviet shooter.

The circuit of the automatic charger is not the best. The diode cuts off the lower part of the sinus, from which the ripple is uneven.

With diode bridge

For car battery, this option is suitable better. DM is a full voltage equalizer.

The charger for the car battery is also assembled, but the bridge is installed instead of the diode. From his minus the wire goes to the fuse after the transformer.

The diode bridge can be bought or soldered independently. To do this, you will need only 4 diodes. The scheme looks like this. Voltage is still pulsating, which is not very good for batteries.

With a diode bridge and condenser

This is what the correct transformer charger looks like. There is a capacitor for 25-50 volts and 5000-6000 microfrades between plus and minus.

The capacitor takes the voltage and gives it, but already aligned and without ripples.

Schemes with adjustment

If you want a charger for a car battery, work done correctly, a regulator is needed. With this, an ordinary rapid (variable) resistor by 4.7 kiloma will cope with it.

Also in the diagram there are 3 transistors. Their location and number signed, so there will be no problems. Enough to come to a radio shop and show items. They are needed that the resistor worked correctly.

The transistors need to be at least passive cooling, therefore it is better to attach to their radiators to attach an aluminum plate or put a cooler.

Comment. In the diagram in the transistor of the P210 transistor and the second fuse is an ammeter. With current adjustment and voltage in it, it is not necessary, since only the voltage is needed. Therefore, it is better to put a voltmeter in its place.

Detailed video can be viewed below.

Procedure for assembling charger for a car battery

By consider how to make a charger for a car. For a beginner it is quite suitable for this scheme. It was reviewed earlier. How to improve it - written above.

First you need to get a transformer. In radio equipment and old tape recorders, you can find a good TC-180-2. It consists of 4 windings. You need to connect to the primary conclusions 1 and 1, and on the secondary 9 numbers. That is, if you connect 4 windings in 2 sequentially, a two-winding transformer with a voltage of 13.6 volts, which is required for normal operation to work. To the conclusions number 2 you need to solder a network cord.

How to connect a charger to a car battery? Just need a diode bridge to connect with 10 conclusions with wires. In the gap it is worth putting an ammeter with a limitation of 15 amps.

A voltage regulator is falling into the ammeter chain. Between the conclusions from the transformer you need to put a voltmeter.

To protect the automatic charger for car batteries, you need to put fuses. One side of the battery (10 A), the second at the inlet to the transformer (0,5a).

You should not immediately put a high current. For reinsurance on the charger, you need to install a low current (from 1a), and then gradually increase to 9-10a. When the battery is charged, the ammeter will show about 1 amp. This means that the charger can be turned off.

Power supplementing

A homemade recharge device can be made of BP from the computer. It will be necessary to modify it a little, but it turns out good, almost factory zoom. Perhaps the power supply can be found in the covers.

For the most part, BP are built on the basis of the PWM module TL494. It is perfect for automotive charging.

Next you just need to act according to the instructions:

  1. All wires, except yellow and black, need to trim.
  2. They solder them with each other: yellow with yellow, black with black.
  3. On the controller you need to cut the tracks that go to the Pins: 1, 14, 15, 16.
  4. In the housing it is necessary to make 2 holes for trimming resistors (10 and 4.4 kilomes).
  5. It remains only to collect this scheme. You do not need to breed a fee, everything is done by mounting.

In an automatic charger made with your own hands, it does not interfere with the multimeter to be embedded in the BP housing.

The analysis of more than 11 schemes for making your own hands at home, new schemes 2017 and 2018, how to collect a fundamental scheme for an hour.


To understand whether you have the necessary information about batteries and chargers for them, you should pass a small test:
  1. What is the main reasons, the car battery is discharged on the road?

A) the motorist left the vehicle and forgot to turn off the headlights.

B) the battery is too heated under the influence of sunlight.

  1. Can the battery fail if the car does not use for a long time (it is in the garage without launch)?

A) with a duty, a simple battery will fail.

B) No, the battery will not deteriorate, it will only be necessary to charge and it will function again.

  1. Which current source is used to recharge the battery?

A) There is only one option - a network with a voltage of 220 volts.

B) network of 180 volts.

  1. Be sure to remove the battery when connecting a self-made device?

A) It is advisable to dismantle the battery from the installed place, otherwise the risk will damage the electronics by the intake of a large voltage.

B) it is not necessary to remove the battery from the installed place.

  1. If you confuse "minus" and "plus" when connecting the memory, then the battery will fail?

A) Yes, when improperly connected, the equipment is scorified.

B) Charger simply will not turn on, you will need to move the necessary contacts to the required places.


  1. A) No headlights when stopped and minus temperature are the most common reasons for the battery discharge on the road.
  2. A) Akb fails if it is not necessary to recharge it for a simple car.
  3. A) to recharge the network voltage in 220 V.
  4. A) It is not desirable to charge the battery with a homemade device if it is not removed from the car.
  5. A) should not be confused by the terminals, otherwise the homemade apparatus is overrigent.

Battery On the vehicle require periodic charging. The reasons for the discharge can be different - starting from the headlights that the owner forgot to turn off, and to negative temperatures in the winter on the street. For feeding AKB It will take good charger. Such a device in large varieties is presented in auto parts stores. But if there is no possibility or the desire to buy, then Zause You can make it yourself at home. There is also a large number of schemes - they are preferably studied to choose the most suitable option.

Definition: The charger for the car is intended for the transmission of electric current with a given voltage directly to Akb.

Answers to 5 frequently asked questions

  1. Will it take some additional measures before you start charging the battery on your car? - Yes, you will need to clean the terminals, since acid deposits appear during operation. Contacts It must be cleaned very well to clean the current without difficulties to go to the battery. Sometimes motorists use lubrication to handle terminals, it should also be removed.
  2. What to wipe the terminals of the charger? - Specialized tool can be bought in the store or prepare yourself. As an independently made solution, water and soda use. Components are mixed and mixed. This is an excellent option for processing all surfaces. When the acid becomes contact with soda, then the reaction will occur and the motorist will definitely notice it. This place will need to thoroughly wipe to get rid of all Acids. If the terminals were previously treated with lubricant, then it is removed by any clean cloth.
  3. If there are covers on the battery, then you need to open before you start charging? - If the lids are on the housing, they are definitely removed.
  4. For what reason do you need to unscrew the lids with the battery? - It is necessary that the gases formed in the process of charging are free from the housing.
  5. Is there a need to pay attention to the level of electrolyte in the battery? - This is done necessarily. If the level is lower than the required, then you need to add distilled water inside the battery. The level to determine will not be difficult - the plates must be completely covered with liquid.

Another important to know: 3 nuances of operation

Homemaking by method of operation is somewhat different from the factory option. This is explained by the fact that the purchase unit has built-in functions Helping in work. They are difficult to install on the device assembled at home, and therefore will have to adhere to several rules when operation.

  1. The charger assembled with your own hands will not be turned off when charging the battery. That is why it is necessary to periodically monitor the equipment and connect to it Multimeter - To control the charge.
  2. Need to be very neat, not to confuse "plus" and "minus", otherwise Charger grill.
  3. Equipment must be turned off when connecting to Charger.

Fulfilling these simple rules, it turns out to correctly produce a feedback AKB And prevent unpleasant consequences.

Schemes of simple powerful battery chargers.

Transformer memory for automotive batteries with high efficiency: the simplest on quenching capacitors, as well as impulse

on thyristors, simistors and powerful field transistors. more than 5 years of operationFor a start, let's break and forget about such a parameter as the efficiency. Suppose there is a keen desire to charge the car Akb, But there is no possibility due to the complete absence of charging. We will also make an assumption that the farm has lost: incandescent lamp by 220 volts, a diode bridge with a permissible current exceeding the current in which we will charge the battery, or, at worst, );Just a power (rectifier) ​​diode with the same permissible current and maximum reverse voltage - at least 300V.


Navigating the scheme shown in Fig.1 to the left, and pursuing compliance with safety, as well as the polarity of the connection to the battery, Incorrect operation of the battery, leading to sulfate plates;Incorrect operation of the battery, leading to sulfate plates;We get a complete workable device that provides normalized and permanent charge current of the battery charge.

Since 220 volts are the active value of the voltage of the network, the current strength flowing through the battery can be calculated by simple

Formula: long-term parking vehicle, especially during the cold season;Izar (a) = PLAMP (W) / (220 - UAKB) (B) ≈ PLAMP (W) / 220 (B)


A parallel connection of two lamps - doubles the charging current, three - afterwards, etc. to reasonable infinity. City rhythm of the car movement with frequent stops, when the battery does not have time to charge enough;The scheme depicted in Figure 1 on the right, gives a current twice as smaller compared to the previous one. Invisible electrical appliances of the car during parking;The greater advantage of the shown schemes is the possibility of charging any batteries, regardless of their own values ​​of their voltages.

In terms of 1 A. this is enough to select the optimal charging current.

In the design you can use any power transformer with a capacity of about 300 W, including homemade. He must issue

Additional material: What is a multimeter and how to choose it.

On the secondary winding, the voltage is 22-24 at the current up to 10-15 A.. In place VD2-VD5, any rectifier diodes that carry out the straight line will be suitable.

One of the measures to eliminate this disadvantage is the inclusion parallel to the load of the resistor. In the described charger such

When the listed features appear, first of all, it is necessary to check the terminals of the AKB, if necessary, clean and clamp them. In the cold season, you can try to put a battery at a warm room for a while and warm it.

at least 200 square meters cm, which is convenient to use a metal body of the charger design.

The charger (memory) for the battery is necessary to each motorist, but it is worth it a lot, and regular preventive trips to the car service does not exit. Battery maintenance in a hundred requires time and money. In addition, on the discharged battery before the service still needs to be reached. Collect your own hands a workable charger for the car battery with their own hands will be able to everyone who knows how to use the soldering iron.

Little battery theory

Any battery (AKB) is an electrical energy drive. When the voltage is applied to it, the energy accumulates, thanks to chemical changes inside the battery. When the consumer is connected, the opposite process takes place: the reverse chemical change creates a voltage on the terminals of the device, the current flows through the load. Thus, to get a voltage from the battery, it first needs to be "put", i.e. to charge the battery.

Almost any car has its own generator, which, when the engine running, provides power supply to the on-board equipment and charges the battery, replete energy spent on the motor start. But in some cases (frequent or heavy launch of the engine, short trips, etc.) the battery energy does not have time to recover, the battery is gradually discharged. Exit from the created position one is charging an external charger.

How to find out the condition of the battery

To make a decision on the need for charging, you need to determine which state is the ACB. The easiest option is "twist / not twist" - at the same time is unsuccessful. If the battery "does not twist", for example, in the morning in the garage, then you will not go anywhere at all. The state "does not twist" is critical, and the consequences for the battery can be sad.

The optimal and reliable method of checking the state of the battery is the measurement of the voltage on it by the usual tester. At air temperature of about 20 degrees

Degree of charging degree

On the terminals disconnected from the load (!) The battery is as follows:

12.6 ... 12.7 V - fully charged;

12.3 ... 12.4 in - 75%;

12.0 ... 12.1 B - 50%; 11.8 ... 11.9 in - 25%; 11.6 ... 11.7 V - discharged;

below 11.6 V - deep discharge.

below 11.6 V - deep discharge.

It should be noted that the voltage is 10.6 volts - critical. If it drops below, then the "car battery" (especially non-listening) fails.

Proper charging

There are two methods for charging the automotive battery - constant voltage and direct current. Everyone has their own

Determining car battery charge degree

Features and disadvantages:

Charging a constant voltage is suitable for the recovery of the charge of not fully discharged batteries, the voltage on the terminals of which is not lower than 12.3 V. The process is as follows: the battery terminals are connected with a voltage of 14.2-14.7 V. The end of the process controls the current consumption: when it falls to zero, charging is considered to be finished. The lack of this method is possible a large initial charging current; The stronger the battery is discharged, the higher the current. The advantages of the method are obvious - you do not need to constantly adjust the charging current, the battery does not threaten the recharge if you forget about it.

Charging a constant current is the most common and reliable way. In this mode, it gives a constant current equal to 1/10 battery capacity. The end of the charging process is determined by the voltage on the battery - when it reaches 14.7 V, charge the battery is stopped. The lack of such a method - the battery can be spoiled without removing in time with charging.

Homemade charging for batteries

Capricious and requiring adherence to a certain set of conditions for reliable operation. That is why - most of the simplest schemes given

Collect your own hand charger for the car battery is real and not particularly difficult. To do this, you need to have initial knowledge of electrical engineering and be able to keep a soldering iron in your hands.

  • Devices ", repeatedly repeated with a numerous ample radio lobby and depicted in Fig.3.
  • Fig. 3.

Simple device on 6 and 12 V

Such a scheme is the most elementary and budget. With this memory, you can qualitatively charge any lead battery with an operating voltage of 12 or 6 V and an electrical capacity from 10 to 120 a / h.

The device consists of a lowering transformer T1 and a powerful rectifier collected on diodes VD2-VD5. The charging current is made by the S2-S5 switches, with which the C1-C4 capacitors are connected to the transformer power supply circuit. Due to the multiple "weight" of each switch, various combinations allow stepwise to adjust the charging current in the range of 1-15 A with increments of 1 A. This is sufficient to select the optimal charging current.

For example, if a current of 5 A is required, then you will need to enable S4 and S2 tumbler. The closed S5, S3 and S2 will be given in the amount of 11 A. to control the voltage on the battery serves the PU1 voltmeter, followed by the charging current using the PA1 ammeter.

In the design you can use any power transformer with a capacity of about 300 W, including homemade. It should produce voltage 22-24 at the secondary winding at a current to 10-15 A.. In place VD2-VD5, any rectifier diodes, withstanding direct current of at least 10 A and the reverse voltage not lower than 40 V. are suitable for D214 or D242. They should be installed through insulating gaskets on the radiator with an area of ​​scattering at least 300 cm.

C2-C5 capacitors must necessarily be non-polar paper with an operating voltage not lower than 300 V. Suitable, for example, MBCH, KBG-MN, MBGO, IBD, IBM, IBGC. Such capacitors having the shape of cubes were widely used as phase shifting for electromotors of household appliances. As PU1, a DC voltmeter of the M5-2 type with a measurement limit of 30 V. PA1 is an ammeter of the same type with a measurement limit of 30 A.

The scheme is simple, if you collect it out of serviceable parts, it does not need it in establishing. This device is suitable for charging scest batteries, but the "weight" of each of the S2-S5 switches will be different. Therefore, to navigate in the charging currents will have to ammeter.

With smooth adjustment current

Consider the case of how to charge the battery with screwdrivers. For example, the situation when you left the car near the house, forgetting to turn off some electrical equipment. By the morning the battery was discharged and does not start the car. In this case, if your car starts well (from the floor turn), the battery is slightly "tightening."

According to this scheme, collect the charger for the battery of the car with your own hands is more difficult, but it is possible in repetition and also does not contain scarce details. With it, it is permissible to charge 12-volt batteries with a capacity of up to 120 a / h, the charge current is smoothly adjustable.

Charging the battery is performed by a pulse current, a thyristor is used as an adjusting element. In addition to the smooth adjustment knob, this design has a mode switch, when the charging current is turned on twice.

Charging mode is monitored visually by the direction of RA1. R1 resistor homemade, made of nichrome or copper wire with a diameter of at least 0.8 mm. It serves as a current limiter. Lamp EL1 - indicator. In its place, any small-sized indicator lamp with a voltage of 24-36 V.

A lowering transformer can be applied with an output voltage along the secondary winding 18-24 at a current to 15 A. If the appropriate device did not turn out at hand, it can be done from any network transformer with a power of 250-300 W. To do this, with a transformer, all windings are clarified, except for the network, and wind one secondary winding with any insulated wire with a cross section of 6 mm. sq. The number of turns in the winding is 42.

Thyristor VD2 can be any of the KU202 series with letters in-N. It is installed on the radiator with an area of ​​dissipation of at least 200 cm. Power installation of the device is made by wires of minimal length and with a cross section of at least 4 mm. sq. In place VD1, any rectifying diode with a reverse voltage is not lower than 20 V and withstand current of at least 200 mA.

The device is established to calibrate the ammeter RA1. You can do this by connecting several 12-volt lamps with a total capacity of up to 250 W, controlling the current according to a well-serviceable reference ammeter.

From a computer unit

To assemble this simple charger with your own hands, you will need a regular power supply from the old ATH computer and knowledge of radio engineering. But but the characteristics of the device will be decent. With it, they charge the battery to 10 A, adjusting the current and the charge voltage. The only condition - the BP is desirable on the TL494 controller.

We will have to collect the scheme shown in the figure.

Step-by-step necessary for the revision of the operation Will look like this:

Bite all the wires of the power tires, with the exception of yellow and black.

Step-by-step necessary for the revision of the operation To combine the yellow and separate black wires among themselves - it will be, respectively, "+" and "-" memory (see scheme).

Out all the tracks leading to the conclusions 1, 14, 15 and 16 of the TL494 controller.

Install the variables of the resistors with a nominal value of 10 and 4.4 kΩ on the cover of BP - these are the voltage adjustment organs and charging current, respectively.

Attachment to assemble the scheme shown in the figure above.

If the installation is performed correctly, then the improvement is completed. It remains to equip a new voice with a voltmeter, an ammeter and wires with "crocodiles" to connect to the battery.

In the design it is possible to use any variables and permanent resistors, in addition to the current (bottom according to the scheme with a face value of 0.1 Ohm). Its dissipated power is at least 10 W. You can make this resistor yourself from the nichrome or copper wire of the appropriate length, but really find and ready, for example, the shunt from the Chinese digital tester by 10 A or the C5-16MV resistor. Another option is two 5WR2J resistors turned on in parallel. Such resistors are in pulsed power supplies PC or TVs.

What you need to know when charging the battery

Chargeing a car battery, it is important to observe a number of rules. It will help you

Extend battery life and save your health:

All lead batteries charge the current not higher than one tenth of the battery capacity. If you have a car in the car with a capacity of 60 a / h, then the calculation of the charging current looks like this: 60/10 = 6 A.

In the process of charging, explosive gases may be allocated. This is especially true of serviced batteries. There is enough one spark that the hydrogen accumulated in the garage or other room exploded. Therefore, you need to charge batteries in a well-ventilated room or on the balcony.

Charging the battery is accompanied by heat release, so constantly monitor the accommodation temperature of the battery to the touch. If the battery was noticeably heated, then immediately reduce the charging current or stop charging at all.

If the battery is served, constantly monitor the electrolyte level in banks and its density. In the process of charge, the electrolyte "rolls out", and the density increases. If the plates in the bank denied or the density rose above 1.29, and the charging is not yet completed, add distilled water to the electrolyte.

Do not recharge the battery. Maximum voltage on it with a connected memory - 14.7 V.

Do not allow a deep discharge of the battery, recharge it periodically. If the battery voltage at disabled load drops below 10.7, the battery will have to be thrown away.

The question of creating a simple charger for the battery with your own hands is clarified. Everything is quite simple, it remains to stock the necessary tool and you can safely begin to work.

Causes and signs of discharge acb

During the operation of the battery during the operation of the engine there is a permanent recipient of the AKB from the car generator. You can check the charge process by connecting the multimeter to the battery terminals when the engine is running, measuring the charging voltage of the car battery. The charge is considered normal if the voltage on the terminals is from 13.5 to 14.5 volts.

Table of the level of charges of the battery.

What should be the minimum voltage of the battery?

The voltage of a normally charged battery during the parking lot should be at least 12.5 volts. In the event that the voltage is less than 11.5 volts, the engine motor may not start during the start.

For a complete charge, you need to drive on a car at least 30 kilometers or about half an hour in the city's city rhythm. Reasons for the discharge of the battery:
