Part Number: BQ24780S
From the datasheet it says the charger is good for 1 to 4 cell designs
I have followed the design guidelines from the data sheet using a diode OR to power the device either from the input supply or from the battery.
However with a single cell Li-Ion battery with nominal voltage of 3.65, minus the voltage drop of the diode we will be well below the minimum VCC requirement of 4.5 from the data sheet when the system is running from the battery.
So do I need to include a boost converter on the battery before powering the charger or can the charger run at less than 4.5, if it can what is the lower limit of VCC for correct operation.
VCC must be above UVLO in order for the BQ24780S to power up and begin SMBus communication.
However, please note that the BQ24780S is a buck charger, so there will be no charging unless the adapter voltage is sufficiently above the battery voltage.
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.

In reply to Angelo Zhang87:
Thanks for that.
I'm interested in this for the situation where the normal supply is off, I'm running from a 1 cell battery and the battery is becoming discharged.
I need to be sure that I can still access the device via I2C and that the BATDRV pin can keep the associated FET on.
So if the worst case for the lockout is 2.8V but my voltage is falling and there is a 200mV hysteresis my cutoff would be around 2.6V is that correct
In reply to Mark Cullen:
Yes. In the situation you're describing, the worst case falling threshold would be 2.6 V. However, a 1s Li-ion battery typically should not be allowed to discharge much below 3 V anyway due to safety reasons and potential damage to the battery.
I'll set my cut off at 3V on the battery, with the diode drop that would be about 2.7 on the device.
Thanks for your help
