Charge Current - Woozer - 10-07-2014

Is there a reason for the low charge current for the battery? Or can i change the resistor value to increase the charge current, resulting in lower charge times.

Thanks,
W

Charge current is set to 45mA with R1 at 22K which for a ~150mAh battery is about right for a normal charge rate. Should take about 3 hours to charge. You can increase it up to 100mA by changing R1 to 10K, but I wouldn't go any higher than that.
