Do not use LiFePo4 as a car battery, at or around freezing you will start doing permanent damage as the alternator tries to charge it. The solution is Lithium Titanate. you can purchase them from AliExpress (Alibaba is for businesses, they will sell it to you but use AliExpress first). Titanate can handle the extreme temperatures and has an insane charging/ ...

Apart from the negatives to this approach that have been given, for the sake of experimentation let me suggest the following: The alternator is not set up to charge LiPo batteries, so you'll need a suitable charger. The batteries are 48V, so you'll need some means of increasing the voltage. One way is to rewind the alternator to increase the voltage. The ...

(TY AG I read too fast, and thought load is on the battery rather than on the charger which is OK) Apologies Certainly, you can load the charger and reduce its capacity while charging the batteries at a lower CC rate. Previous Answer to a different understanding. If you had the load on the battery side, you should cut charging to the battery if it is ...

If you want your MCU communicating with your android phone, the most common approach will be to use the MCU in a Device mode. Otherwise your phone (as a Device connected to a Host – a PC or MCU) will typically act as a storage device or a camera, you choose it on your phone when it is attached to a Host. MCU's Device mode, on the other hand, is the same as ...

Yes, but there are different types of balancing circuits. This one is passive (at a glance). It will burn off power if a cell (or multiple, if arranged in parallel) reach max voltage first. The downside is that if the resistor can't "burn down" the extra voltage, you CAN hit an overvoltage event if the cells are out of balance enough. I'd also ...

"does the output current depend on the characteristic of the source?" If the current required by the load does not exceed the max current of the source, the answer is NO. The voltage source in this case will work as an almost ideal source and the current will depend solely on the output request.
