We want to use the BQ76952 for a product that will work with a Lithium FePO4 8S battery. But this same product will also have the possibility to work with a 24V NiMH battery. On the NiMH battery, we do not have the voltages of each cell, only the whole voltage. We tested the BQ without connecting the cells, and it works. However, is there any risk to using it with its VC0..7 inputs not connected (with just the capacitors)?
