The LT3651 is a 1 cell 4A Li-Ion/Polymer battery charger that operates with input voltages up to 32V. An efficient monolithic average current mode synchronous switching regulator provides constant current, constant voltage charging with programmable maximum charge current. A charging cycle starts with battery insertion or when the battery voltage drops 2.5% below the float voltage. Charger termination is selectable as either charge current or internal safety timer timeout. Charge current termination occurs when the charge current falls to one-tenth the programmed maximum current (C/10). Timer based termination is typically set to three hours and is user programmable (charging continues below C/10 until timeout). Once charging is terminated, the LT3651 supply current drops to 85μA into a standby mode.
