Has anyone made a wireless charger yet. use / charge / use / charge is getting a little tiresome and it is just my first week with ez-b.

Logic is JD Humanoid (or your build of choice) looks around when battery is flat finds a Glyph (that points in direction to head) and then goes to the home Glyph and parks with coil on breast plate and wireless charges. Seems to be some rough instructables to make a wireless chargers and some pseudo professional solutions
element 14 wireless

I am not sure if anyone has built something like this , logic was a script that continually does a getVoltage() and then looks around for Glyph and returns home to charge when low. EZ-B continues to monitor until each cell of the LiPo reaches optimum level and when charged heads off to play again.

I need the D+ D- wires because the charger requires 3 wires to charge the battery

This is because there are 2 cells in the battery that must be balanced charged


Also, I don’t think you need to worry about the orientation of the connector switching polarity as these cables are more the the USB C design where they don’t care about orientation

ok understand sorry I forgot about the balance charging. I am using the ballancer on battery I mentioned before so only 1 positive and 1 negative terminal.

Here is a picture of the 2.4 amp cable I purchased. There is 15 cores for data line and 35 for power.

Ah, I forgot you were adding the charger into the robot... I might try that too as you mentioned that frees up some lines for possible power control of the robot

@Frank 2 months later my magnetic cable turned up. (Just love ordering parts from China).

Works well. I will add them to all my EZ-B great idea! Thanks
