Battery Charge Indicator. Simple Design 5

BATTERY-CHARGE-INDICATOR-2This is one simple but highly useful circuit for you. Most of us use different types of Rechargeable batteries in Portable devices, Inverter, Emergency lamp etc. If the battery is deeply discharged, sometimes it will not get fully charged later. This is the most common reason for the failure of Emergency lamp. So we need an indicator to show the safe level of battery voltage. It is too simple to make it and needs only three components. Just hook up it in the battery and it will remind you when it needs charge.

Tristate Battery Level Indicator

Here is a simple but useful battery level indicator to monitor the battery terminal voltage.Efficiency of the battery reflects in its terminal voltage. A good Lead Acid battery will show 13.8 volts in the fully charged state and if it is below 10 volts, the battery needs immediate charging. If the battery voltage goes above 14 volts, it is in the overcharged condition. This circuit uses a two lead bicolour LED to indicate three battery levels. If the voltage is below 10 volts, the Green part of the LED lights and if the voltage is above 14 volts, the Red part lights. If the battery voltage is between 10 to 14  volts LED remains off.
