Product Details

The MAX8808 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested circuit board that demonstrates the highly integrated MAX8808X/MAX8808Y/MAX8808Z linear battery chargers for single-cell lithium-ion (Li+) batteries. The EV kit safely charges a single Li+ battery to 4.2V. The EV kit accepts power supply inputs of 4.25V to 15V, but disables charging when the input voltage exceeds 7V. An enable input to the EV kit allows the user to disable and enable the charger. An LED on the board indicates the status of the charging cycle.
