Other Parts Discussed in Thread: BQSTUDIO
Can I attach a bench power supply to the BAT and GND terminals of the BQ25895EVM-664 instead of a battery? I would be careful not to attach input power (Vbus or USB In), and to disable charging with the register setting in bqStudio. Obviously I don't want the BQ25895EVM trying to "charge" the bench supply, but as long as I don't do that, is it otherwise safe? I'm trying to eliminate the battery and its protection module (BQ29700) from the equation while evaluating the current capacity of the BQ25895EVM boost converter.
Thanks very much!
