  • I have a few questions before I order. I’m sorry if they are dumb questions or if I overlooked something but I just want to make absolute sure what I am buying is what I want.

    1) What happens when the supply voltage falls below 5V? I see from the MCP datasheet that the minimum supply is 3.75V.

    2)I would also like to know what the minimum supply current is. I ask this because I am using a solar panel system as the supply source.

    3)Can you recommend a voltage regulator that I could use in conjunction with this in order to supply a constant supply voltage?

    4) Using the “charge” inputs as supply, is there any reason I could not charge the battery using this device and discharge it using a load as well?


No public wish lists :(
