Battery Tester Project Using LM3914 IC
This objective of this project and implimentation is to design and build a battery tester that is able to test various types of dry cell and rechargable battery with a voltage of less than 2V. Configured as a bar graph battery level indicator, the LM3914 IC from National Semiconductor senses the voltage levels of the battery under test and drives the 10 LEDs to ON or OFF based on the voltage that is detected. The current driving the LEDs is regulated by using the external resistor R1 and hence limiting resistors are not required.

The schematic shows the simple connections where the reference voltage at pin 8 of U1 can be adjusted by adjusting the variable resistor VR1. The voltage at pin 8 will set the maximum scale of the LED. In testing dry cell battery of 1.5V, set the voltage at pin 8 to 2.0V. Each of the LED will thus represent 200mV when lighted up.



If testing of rechargable battery such as NiCd or NiMH is required, set the reference voltage to a lower value such as 1.5V as the typical voltage of a rechargable battery is approximately 1.2V.

When testing the battery, take note of the polarity of the probe to the terminals of the battery. T1 is to be placed on the positive terminal and T2 the negative terminal of the battery.

Hello,

I am a 3rd year B.Tech student from India. I have a project and implimentation regarding battery Level Indicator in this semester as a part of my study. As I was searching for some help I cam through your thread. It seems your post would be really helpful to me.

So, I request you to provide me with the resources like schematic and components required.
It would really help me a lot.

I hope you help me as soon as possible.

Thanks
iroushan
