The datasheet gives the recommended total resistance should be 10M (OV/UV/VBAT_PROG/VBAT_HYST) or 20M (MPPT). Other than reducing leakage current, is there any other reason to do so? Since the calculated resistance value is not standard, it's hard to purchase the resistor.
+/- 5% is okay.
In reply to Jeff F:
Are the large values to just keep the low Q current? Is there a problem with lowering the total R than specified. +/-5% is not much difference. I was hoping to reduce by almost a factor of 10. I am aware that my total current consumption will increase, but it is worth the stability.
In reply to Brian Gaustad:
Large resistor values are recommended to keep the low Iq. Lowering the resistors will not cause stability issues.
