BQ24251 replacement?

Other Parts Discussed in Thread: BQ24251, BQ24297, BQ25890


I was looking at the BQ24251.  It contains all the attributes I was looking for in a battery charger that can detect the USB host current capabilities.  I can access its status registers and determine what it was connected to (USB host/wall adapter).  Unfortunately, the BQ24251 is being phased out.  Do you suggest a replacement.

We want our device to play nice with USB hosts and adapters while charging a single cell li-poly battery.  We would like to charge the battery at 100mA, 500mA and 1200mA when the current is available.  We would like to access the status of the charger (including what it is connected to) through I2C.  thank you

Thanks, Joshua
