This handy little IC will correctly and safely charge our Lithium Polymer batteries with power from a USB port or from a DC wall adapter. Max current is limited to 300mA using an external wall supply (3.7V to 7V). Requires almost no external components and will automatically select between a DC source and USB source if both are present. Current is automatically reduced to a trickle when charging is complete.
If you are interested in Internet of Things (IoT) or M2M projects check our open source sensor platform Waspmote which counts with more than 100 sensors available to use 'off the shelf', a complete API with hundreds of ready to use codes and a low consumption mode of just 0.7µA to ensure years of battery life.
