Part Number: BQ33100
I have two questions about cell balancing of BQ33100.
Can you please send us your configuration file

In reply to Batt:
The schematic diagram is attached below.
Besides, we wish to know is the cell balancing of BQ33100 enabled when the super-caps just start to be charged or after the voltage of the super-caps reach a threshold?
In reply to Wenxiu Wang:
The bq33100 uses voltage balancing. So, balanicng starts when the voltage thresholds are met. If they are met at start of charge balancing will start then.
The regulator in your design can reduce power consumption unlike the FETs externa to the default balancing circuit. So, that's a plus. I don't see any direct downsides to it it your voltage thresholds can be maintained.
Our customer says that the regulator in our design has internal FETs, so what does "reduce power consumption"mean?
It means that the FETs can switch off using the regulator and not have static power dissipation at a high level.
Excuse me, could you please explain more specifically?
Capacitor balancing here is done by an internal FET. What it does in that case is to bypass the chg from the cap to GND. The bypass circuit is internal to the gauge. It is triggered by a FET which is controlled by fw. That is what I meant.
Then what about BQ33100? In BQ33100, what controls the FETs? And why its power consumption is higher?
Our customer is really interested in the power consumption. And here below are the datasheets of LP2998 and BQ33100, does what you say have relationship with the leakage current and Ishutdown?
We don't have access to the internal blocks to understand the power consumption of the bq33100. However, leakage current is definitely related to power consumption of device in shutdown.
