10440 charger and voltmeter in an Altoids tin

Hi-I’m sure I’m not the first one to do this but this is what I did and would like to share.

Cool little charger but isn’t it a 10440 charger and not a AAA charger or does it do both.

Very nice.

Don't be confused, my Username has been changed from "Cone" to "T.H.Cone".  I'm still the same clown.

Very cool.  That is a great solution.  My first charger like this was one of the LM2596 CC/CV boards that I put into the tin that came with my Tank007 E09.  I built it so I could charge some of the fancy new 4.35v cells, since there wasn't really a commercially available charger yet.

Mine obviously needed an external power supply and cords for the board.  

After the Xtar 4.35v chargers came out I stopped using it, but it was pretty cool to have it at the time.  

Mountain Electronics : batteries, Noctigon, and much more! What's new?
