Complete article, GCC code, photos and schematics describing how to use LiIon batteries and build a LiIon battery charger. Unleash the power of those 6400 mAH laptop batteries that are available out there - ideal for robotics. Based on Atmels AppNote 450, converted from IAR to GCC, adds a Smart Battery interface and other improvements. Charger settings are downloaded from the battery or can be set using on board dip switches. Uses an ATMEGA8. *** Updated to Rev.1 8/1/02
