Low cost constant current regulator (CCR) charging solution for rechargeable batteries
The growing importance of portable electronic products such as cell phones, MP3 players and digital cameras in our daily lives has led to widespread use of rechargeable batteries. Ensuring efficient charging of these batteries allows the manufacturers of these products to gain a competitive advantage and enhance the overall user experience.
This webinar will look at how a constant current regulator or CCR can be used to create a low power, low cost, high efficiency charging solution that is suitable for rechargeable batteries covering a broad selection of different target applications, from standard AA batteries used in the domestic environment, to portable consumer devices, right through to handheld power tools.
