The components in our bench battery charger kits are selected for easy insertion into a standard solderless breadboard and durability after repeated insertion and extraction. Bench products are intended for indoor use and are not weatherproof.
The BZen-BC1 is the first barzensuit project to have reached the full testing milestone. The BZen-BC1 stores solar generated electricity from one or more connected modules capable of producing 8-30VDC. Built around the BQ2954 by Texas Instruments, the BZen-BC1 is a single cell Li-Poly battery charger designed specifically for educational purposes and requiring no soldered connections. All components in the reference design are selected for easy insertion into a standard solderless breadboard with 2 buses and 126 5-tie point terminals.
The jongula.com BZen-BC1 kit contains all parts on the project bill of materials, individually wrapped in anti-static poly and identified by it's respective label on the reference design. The kit also includes a full set of instructions for assembly step by step with checkpoints throughout.
The solar module(s) and solderless breadboard are sold separately.
