Other Parts Discussed in Thread: BQ51013B, BQ51052B
We developed a circuit with the BQ51050B and it works. It is built with the examples from the datasheet, R1=110 ohm and Rfod=200 ohm (with the typical application schematic, R1 from ILIM to FOD, and Rfod from Rfod to GND). This results in Ibulk of 1 A. But we are planning to use the Varta EasyPack S, see here.
The maximum allowed charging current for the battery is 650 mA. But for a longer battery life, we plan to charge it with 200 mA. Is this possible with the BQ51050B and which values should I use for R1 and Rfod then? If it is not possible, which would be the lowest possible charging current and which are the values for R1 and Rfod? And what would be the recommended value for Rterm?
