 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi,
I'm in need of some help regarding a good way to integrate a proper rechargable battery and of course charger for the arduino.

Has anyone implemented this nicely?  I'm running some LEDs, a 20x4 LCD, and a couple servos and would like to have that continue when the power brick is disconnected, and ultimately for at least 24hrs.

Thanks for any help!

The last thing you did is where you should start looking.

I would 1st measure the total current the project is drawing. This will give an idea of the battery capacity needed.  "Integrate" the charger and battery, are you going to use a standalone AtMega chip on its on PCB?

Buy a small 5-7a/h lead acid battery (12v), charge it with any old car charger, use it to power your projects for days on end (if your project permits)
