today I tell you about  new battery charger.It is very important your phone,modems,etc....I explain it step by step.Keep in mind.Do you ready??

Ni-Cd Ni-MH Adjustable Constant Current Battery Charger Circuit

This is a Adjustable Constant Current Ni-MH or Ni-Cd battery charger circuit. It can be used to get a constant current power supply. Here is the schematic diagram of the circuit:
Ni-MH Ni-Cd Adjustable Constant Current Battery Charger circuit
PARTS LIST
R1 100Ω
VR1 500Ω Preset
C1 0.1µF
C2 0.01µF
D1 1N4001
Q1 BC140
IC1 LM317
This circuit can be adjusted to any value from a few milliamp to about 500mA. The max current is 500mA because it is the limit of the BC140 transistor in the current-limiting part of the circuit.
The input voltage has to be 5.25v above the required output voltage, because of 1.25v across the current-limiting section and Approximately 4v is dropped across the regulator.  The LM317 3-terminal regulator will need to be heatsinked.
LM317 pinout configuration
the LM series of regulator is suitable for this circuit because they have a voltage differential of 1.25v between “adj” and “out” terminals.
BC140 NPN transistor pinout
For example, to charge 4 Ni-Cad cells, just connect them to the output and adjust the 500Ω preset until the required charge-current is obtained. The charger will charge 4 Ni-Cad cells at the same current. But, don’t forget to turn off the charger before the cells are fully charged or the battery will be over-charged.
