Recently a note has been added to datasheet of BQ29209-Q1:
“Using any cell connection sequence that does not connect GND first may result in increased leakage current drawn by the VDD pin.”
1) What is the value of the leakage current (maximum and/or typical) ?
2) Will the leakage always happen or does it depend on other factors (which are those ?) ?
3) Why is the leakage current happening ?
The leakage current might affect telematics application and result in redesign activities, hence these details are important for customer.
