What is a Battery Charger?

A battery charger is a device which is used in order to put energy into a secondary cell or a rechargeable battery by forcing an electric current through it. The charging protocol depends on the type and the size of the battery that is being charged. A charger in its simplest form works by supplying a pulsed DC or a constant DC power source to a battery that is being charged.

Types of Battery Charger Chips

There are many different kinds of battery charger chips and at Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by configuration, number of channels, maximum input voltage limit, packaging type and maximum input voltage. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.

The most common sizes for maximum input voltage limit are 7 V, 7.5 V and 13.5 V. We also carry battery charger chips with maximum input voltage limit as high as 36 V. Maximum input voltage can range from 1.4 V to 40 V, with the most common battery charger semiconductor chips having a maximum input voltage of 5.5 V, 6 V or 12 V.

Battery Charger Chips from Future Electronics

Future Electronics has a full selection of programmable battery charger chips from several manufacturers that can be used to design a universal battery charger, battery charger IC (integrated circuit), electronic battery charger or for any other type of circuit that may require battery charging. Simply choose from the battery charger chip technical attributes below and your search results will quickly be narrowed to match your specific battery charger chip application needs.

If you have a preferred brand, we deal with several manufacturers such as Analogic Tech – AATI, Freescale Semiconductor, Microchip or STMicroelectronics, among other manufacturers. You can easily refine your battery charger chip product search results by clicking your preferred battery charger chip brand below from our list of manufacturers.

Applications for Battery Charger Chips:

Battery chargers can be used for vehicles. There are two types of chargers for vehicles. The first one is to recharge a fuel vehicle's starter battery, where a modular charger is used, and the other type is to recharge an electric vehicle battery pack. A battery charger can also work as a DC power adapter for experimentation purposes.

Choosing the Right Battery Charger Chip:

When you are looking for the right battery charger chips, with the FutureElectronics.com parametric search, you can filter the results by various attributes: by Maximum Input Voltage Limit (400 mV, 6 V, 7 V, 13.5 V, 18 V,…), Maximum Input Voltage (1.4 V, 5.5 V, 6 V, 12 V, 16 V,…) and Number of Channels (1 or 2) to name a few. You will be able to find the right semiconductor chip from several manufacturers that can be used to design a battery charger IC (integrated circuit), electronic battery charger, universal battery charger or any circuits that may require battery charging.

Battery Charger Chips in Production Ready Packaging or R&D Quantities

If the quantity of battery charger chips required is less than a full reel, we offer customers many of our programmable battery charger chip products in tube, tray or individual quantities that will avoid unneeded surplus.

In addition, Future Electronics offers clients a unique bonded inventory program that is designed to eliminate potential problems that may arise from an unpredictable supply of products containing raw metals and products with erratic or long lead times. Talk with your nearest Future Electronics branch and find out more on how you and your company can avoid possible shortages.
