A recent request from one of my followers Mr. Raja Gilse (via email), prompted me to design a DC double cellphone charger circuit that is able to facilitate charging of many cell phones simultaneously, let's learn how to make the circuit.
How DC to DC Charger Works
I have already explained regarding a couple of DC to DC cellphone charging circuits, however all these are designed for charging a single cell phone. For charging more than one cell phone from an external DC source like an automobile battery, requires an elaborate circuit.
Dear sir. Please tell me that what alterations should i do, to charge two mobiles at a time from your "12V BATTERY OPERATED CELL PHONE CHARGER CIRCUIT".(from bright hub) I am using the circuit from last 8 months, it's fine. Please post that article in your new blog also.
Dear sir, i tried so many time to post this comment in your blog in the "simple dc to dc cell phone charger circuit" but in vain. Please answer here~ Sir, i used another 10 ohm 2 watt resistor in parallel with the existing one, as i don’t have the higher watt resistor. It’s working fine. Thank you very much, i have one doubt, earlier, in bright hub in the same article you told to use 10 ohm resistor, but here it is 5 ohm which is suitable ?
I have another question out of this article; please guide me could I use three 1N4007 silicon diode instead of one 1N5408 silicon diode? My aim is to allow 3A current in only one direction. But i don’t have diode of 3A i.e. 1N5408. As 1N4007 is of 1 amps capacity could use three 1N4007 in parallel and like wise for 5A five 1N4007 in parallel, because i have number of 1N4007
Solving the Circuit Request
Hi Rajagilse,Use the following DC double cellphone charger circuit given below:
As you increase the limiting resistor value, the charging becomes slower, therefore a 5 Ohm resistor would charge the cell phone faster than a 10 Ohm, and so on. I'll check the problem with the commenting in my blog...however other comments are coming normally as usual! Let's see. Thanks and Regards.
R1 = 0.1 Ohms 2 watt,
R2 = 2 Ohms 2 Watt
R3 = 3 Ohms 1 watt
C1 = 100uF/25V
C2 = 0.1 discT1 = BD140 D1 = 1N5408
IC1 = 7805
The circuit of the double DC cell phone charger was successfully tried and built by Mr. Ajay Dussa over a home designed PCB, the following images of the PCB layout and the prototype were sent by Mr. Ajay.
4 to 5 Cell Phone Charger Circuit
The following circuit can be used for charging as many as 5 cell phones at a time. The circuit employs the versatile IC LM338 for producing the required power. The input is selected to be a 6V but can be as high as 24V. A single cell phone can also be charged from this circuit.
The circuit was requested by Mr. Ram.
Multiple Cellphone Charger Circuit using IC 7805
Any desired number of cellphones can be charged by using IC 7805 in parallel as shown the following figure. Since the ICs are all mounted on the same heatsink the heat among them is uniformly shared ensuring a uniform charging across all the connected multiple cellphone devices.
Here 5 ICs are used for charging by medium sized cellphones, more number of ICs could added to accommodate more number of cellphones in the charging array.
