This is a retired product, but fear not as there is a newer, better version available: PRT-10161
Replacement: PRT-10161. The MAX1555 was discontinued. We have a new version using a new IC. This page is for reference only.
Description: This is a Polymer Lithium Ion battery charger based on the MAX1555 IC. This charger uses either USB bus power (MAX1555 internally limits this to 100mA) or 2.1mm center positive wall-wart power (MAX1555 internally limits this to 300mA). Current is automatically reduced to a trickle when charging is complete. Cheap, easy to use, and flexible, this board serves as a great demo board for the MAX1555. This charger is a 'must have' for quick and clean charging of Lithium Polymer chemistry batteries.
