This project is a solution to problems all makers face while finding power sources for their Arduino, Raspberry Pi and other projects.
This project attempts to reuse and recycle rechargeable Lithium Ion (Li-ion) cells from batteries found in e-Waste like laptop batteries, mobile batteries, power banks and other similar sources.
Lithium batteries and Lithium mining, in general, are environmentally harmful processes. So they have to be recycled.
This project is an attempt to recycle and hence reduce the demand for new Lithium cells.
The batteries used in consumer electronics are mostly grids of 18650 sized Li-ion cells with proprietary battery protection systems.
We will learn to extract these cells and use them with over-the-counter Battery Management Systems (BMS).
Join this project and also build a battery yourself to get resume credit.
Users who are willing to take risks and are 21+ years of age.
Advice and feedback.
Your contributions will help to reuse and recycle Lithium batteries found in e-Waste.
Cell: Electrochemical cell that derives electrical energy from spontaneous redox reaction inside the cell
Battery: Stack or grid of electrochemical cells designed to provide more voltage or current than a single cell.
