Diy Ezb Powered Sla And Lipo Battery Safe Charger Station By Josh Starnes

StorySkip to comments

Hello guys , as some of you know I've spent the last several days searching for a new place to live and finally found one on the 19th , large upstairs and downstairs. I'm setting you up for the scenario where I will most likely want to charge batteries in doors ( or maybe right outside on the patio) and be able to monitor when they are fully charged , if there is a fault or short the charging can be stopped and temperature monitored to stop charging if the temps get too high. This way I would be confident in charging batteries even when I'm not home and in case a cell explodes or catches on fire it will be contained. I plan to use a GE microwave as the case for this as they have two or three layers of steel which can easily be insulated with fire resistant Matt found at your local Lowes or home depot. Beyond the benefits of safety once I gut out the electronics section that holds the magneto and such I will have plenty of room for the voltage sensing circuits , the ezb, voltage displays and other goodies. I'm sure everyone can find a descent microwave that's lived its life that looks good and can help some of your hobby equipment blend into your home. Also if a fire ever did happen fire fighters check the stove and microwave first ;) just another innovative way to use ezb in your hobby whether you charge batteries for robots , airplanes, rc cars , rc boats etc.. - Josh S
