This paper explores the topic of optimizing battery charging efficiency and longevity through smart charging techniques in microcontroller-based systems. With the increasing demand for portable and wireless devices, efficient battery charging and longer battery life have become essential. The use of microcontroller-based systems allows for more precise and effective control of battery charging, resulting in improved efficiency and longevity. The current research is on intelligent battery charging systems and battery management systems and discusses various smart charging techniques that can be employed in microcontroller-based systems, including fuzzy logic control, model predictive control, and hybrid algorithms. The paper also highlights the importance of battery management and the need for a comprehensive battery management system to optimize charging efficiency and battery longevity. Finally, the paper presents several case studies and experimental results to demonstrate the effectiveness of these smart charging techniques in improving battery charging efficiency and longevity in microcontroller-based systems.
