MP2760 Autonomous Charging

I’m thinking of using the MP2760 in a handheld device that requires Li+ charging. I like the part for it’s external battfet that allows me to pick a FET that can handle my system’s large transient loads.

That being said, I need the system to charge the battery without any host intervention. Assuming that the OTP memory has been configured for my use case, will the MP2760 autonomously run a charge cycle without any host intervention?

I see there is a watchdog timer and see that it can be disabled and that it is disabled by default. So it shouldn’t get in the way of completing a full charge cycle - correct?

I also see that the datasheet calls out an automatic recharge cycle which I think should also mean that it will autonomously charge without host intervention - assuming normal conditions. Can someone please confirm this is the behavior that I can expect?
