  • 12 volt dc auto on emergency light part 2

    919 views 5 months ago
    Did some more work on this automatic on emergency light. I decided to use two 1 watt LEDs and a 12 volt lithium ion battery pack to power the light when there is a power failure. I use a 12.6v lithium ion battery dedicated charger to keep power on the 12 volt relay to keep the contacts open while on standby. The battery is also kept charged in this mode.
    When there is a power failure, the AC power from the outlet no longer keeps the relays open. When the contacts are closed, the light circuit gets power from the battery and turn on the LEDs. You can adapt this circuit for your own needs. For example, if you want to keep a set of batteries charged by AC and to automatically charged by a solar panel (via a solar charge controller) when there is a power failure, you can use this circuit to do so. The battery management system chip is available on eBay for $2 and it is a good idea to incorporate it into the system to prevent any mishaps.
