High Performance Gelled lead acid charger

High Performance Gelled lead acid charger
This high performance battery charger circuit allow quickly charges gelled lead-acid batteries, and automatically turns off at full charge. First, the charge current is held at 2 A, but as battery voltage rises, the current will decreases. When current falls to 150 mA, the charger automatically switches to a lower float voltage to keep from overcharging. When you hit full charge, transistor Q1 lights the LED to indicate that status.
