Li-Ion/Li-Poly Battery Charge and System Load Sharing Management Design Guide With MCP73871
The rechargeable Li-Ion/Li-Poly batteries are widely used in today's portable CE (consumer electronics). Commonly seen Li-Poly batteries are Li-Ion Polymer batteries that use solid polymer separator and share the same charge algorithm with Li-Ion batteries. Thus, Li-Ion batteries will represent both Li-Ion and Li-Poly batteries in this application note. Because of the growing features and the increasing size of the display in a portable electronic product, the battery usage is also modifying. The daily battery charging frequency increases, and it becomes important to operate a device while charging its battery.
