    Lead acid? lithium? Ni Mh.... every battery type is different

    Battery charging can be quite a sophisticated business. All technologies have different requirements - especially if you want to charge it reasonably quickly. You need to do a bit of general reading round and look at the data sheets on the battery you need to charge.
    Personally, I reckon that battery chargers are so cheap, for most technologies and so difficult for others that I'd rather buy one. If it's a Lithium Ion battery then you need to be really careful and it's not an ideal 'first project' for the amateur constructor.

    That's rather an open question and it reads a bit like homework(?).
    Have you a specific question?

    Welcome to the PF.

    I have merged your 3 threads on similar topics.

    We do require that you show your effort before asking overly-broad questions. Please show us what you have been reading about these subjects, and what you know so far.

    What is the context of your questions? Are you working on a battery charging system? Or is this for schoolwork?

    First go to wikipedia or some other site and read about charging and characteristics for the battery technology (like lead-acid, lithiun-ion, NiMH, NiCad, etc) you are intertested in. Then, proceed to ask questions about the things you don't understand.
