BQ25700A: Ni-MH 12S1P charger IC needed

Part Number: BQ25700A
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: BQ25720


I'm trying to identify a chip which can charge and manage a 12S1P battery of Ni-MH cells. Someone else has asked this (see link below) but I think the replies are wrong, as the two parts they mention describe being able to handle 3 cells in series, not 12. Am I reading this right?

So, does anyone know what chips are available to do a 12S1P pack? The search feature on the web shows nothing.

Ideally we'd like to implement input power via USB PD (although this may need an additional IC), and we also need power pass through, to both run the load and charge the battery from the incoming supply.

TIA for any leads.
