Part Number: BQ2970

Hi,

BQ29700 has reverse battery connection protection?

There is no clear info for that in datasheet.

Thanks.

  • Hi,

    Yes the BQ2970 does have reverse battery protection. Refer to section 10.2.2 of the datasheet. It states "An RC filter is required on the BAT for noise, and enables the device to operate during sharp negative transients. The 330-Ω resistor also limits the current during a reverse connection on the system."

    Thanks,

    Shawn
