I’m integrating the MP2723A into one of our products and I noticed an odd behaviour.
I’m working on the integration using the evaluation kit (EV2723A-QC-00A)
When using it without any battery (VBATT) connected, the charging state seems to go a little bit crazy because it constantly flip-flops from charging to fully charged.
Is there any way I can detect there’s no physical battery connected to ignore these strange state changes (or maybe even stop checking the charging state)?
All I could think of is checking the ICHG ADC value. When that’s 0 and the state is charging
, I assume there’s no battery. It kinda works, but I’m not very comfortable with this method.
Thanks in advance
