Battery Help

Post by Hifeno » Sun Apr 25, 2010 3:54 pm

I have 3 of these http://www.batteryspace.com/highpowerpo ... 7arate.asp" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; with a protection circuit. I can not figure out how to wire it up to triple the volts and make it charge. Can anyone tell me how I need to do this.
The circuit board is PCM-L104sb-026 Rev 1.0 and it has P+ P- B+ B- B1- B2- B3- and LED I am so confused. I want to use these in my N64p but can not figure this out.

The batteries are wired in series. So you will have it like this top pic (add another battery of course):

Then you will wire them to the Pcb in the same spots as this pic :

So you will be using the B+ , then B1, then B2, then B- . The B3 is not used.

They also go to the screen/n64. "Charge load" means what the charge from the batteries will be going to :) (or, in the case of the charging jack, from)

I think they were putting out a LOT less mAh, not enough to power the system or keep the screen running. I think so, anyway

The problem I am having now is that that my batteries are only suppose to output 11.1 volts but when I hook multimeter to it they are outputting 14.7 volts is this okay for the n64? Why are they outputting so much voltage? I have it wired just like the diagram.

I don't know why it is outputting so much voltage, but I can tell you that 14.7 volts is not okay to wire to the n64. you will fry it
