  • Referencing the datasheet the quoted max USB supply current is 3mA with a max voltage input of 6V. How is it then possible that the output is 4.242V at 100mA (at max charging)? This parameter does not seem to make sense with basic rules of electronics and power and when examining the circuit in the data sheet it seems as though the FET draws the current directly from the voltage source. If I am just reading the data sheet incorrectly please inform me but otherwise if anyone has an answer to this question it would be greatly appreciated.

No public wish lists :(
