I know a similar question was asked before, but still, it didn't aswer what I'm looking for.
I need to charge a series of 6 Li-ion cells, and maybe 12 in the future for a voltage hungry project. Since a have a bunch of TP4056 modules laying around, i want to use them as my charger.
I have encountered my self with the very wrong idea of connecting them in parallel to 5V, others say to just hook them up in series, but the drivers need a constant 5V input.
What about chaining zener diodes?
Or even better, i have switching regulatos modules, can i chain them as well, intead?
And what about building a multi-output 5V supply? (like a phone charger, but with isolated USBs, for example)
I don't need much correct out of them, 500mA overall per module would be fine.
(Over complicated, i know, but believe me, it's easier for me to get that done instead of getting a proper charger in my country.)
Here's the concept, these regulators could be any style of voltage regultor that fit the requirements. Also, this chain could be as long as needed (in my case, 6 to 12 cells)
