The goal of this project is to create a laptop charger that does not have a big box converter. This will be better for the user because the big box converter always gets in the way. This will be accomplished by designing a cable that has several smaller components in it. Figure 1 shows a high level block diagram of how this design could look. The cable must still be able to handle all the power requirements of a laptop charger: to convert high voltage AC to the DC charging voltage. It must also be able to vary the current to depending on the battery level. It must also be as efficient as a standard charger.
