Battery Booster

Design Tip

Battery Booster
The inspiration for this design came from the author’s experience with a mini model helicopter (from Silverlit). This particular model has a hand-held transmitter powered by six AA batteries which acts as a charging station in between flights to recharge the helicopter’s LiPo battery. Even alkaline batteries become discharged relatively quickly because of the energy demands of the helicopter.
