BQ24072: Selecting an READILY AVAILABLE single LiPo cell linear charger using 6 volt PV input

Part Number: BQ24072

We are looking at the BQ2407X family of ICs and feeling overwhelmed with which one to select for a new IoT product considering inventory levels are so unpredictable.  We aren't set on the BQ2407X family but need to chrge a single LiPo or 18650 cell with a 6 volt PV panel which has a typical charging voltage of about 5 volts.  Does anyone have suggestion as to which charger we should consider where in 6 months from now we are least likely to be looking at zero stock and a 12 month waiting period?

Thanks,

Chris

  • Hi Chris,

    Welcome to E2E!

    In terms of core functionalities, all of these devices are the same in that they will charge the battery. There are some minor differences like battery charge voltage, the over voltage protection threshold.

    If you have information like battery charge voltage we can narrow some devices down and if you have minimum system voltages (the voltage at the OUT pin) that'd also be great. 

    Let me reach out to you in an email regarding this.
